Named as the ‘Event of the Year’ at this year’s Progressive Music Awards, Barcelona based festival recently announced that Sons of Apollo, Pain of Salvation and Australian virtuoso Plini will play in 2018. Now the festival have added Gazpacho and Persefone to the line-up for next year.
Be Prog! My Friend
They comment: "Gazpacho have been one of the most requested bands to play the festival since we first started Be Prog! My Friend. Musically it’s not easy to classify them but some call them ‘art-rock', others label them as ‘alternative’ and even the phrase ‘neo-progressive’ has been mentioned. Many say they sound similar to Radiohead or The Porcupine Tree. What we do know though is that we are honoured to finally have them at the festival. The tour to support their most recent album Molok was a complete success with several sold out shows all over Europe. We are glad fans of Be Prog! My Friend will finally get to enjoy Gazpacho in 2018 and the band have also told us that they will be releasing a new album then too.
We are also pleased to add one of the most promising bands in the progressive scene, Persefone. The Andorra based outfit stylishly and powerfully combine prog and metal. With their fifth album Aathma they have really strengthened their position as one of the best new bands around. Welcome!"
Be Prog! My Friend 2018 will take place on 29th and 30th June next year. Held in the beautiful open air surroundings of Poble Espanyol – a huge stone built architectural museum - the site is one of the most important and striking landmarks of tourism in Barcelona.
