Fresh from the news that A Perfect Circle would be headlining 2018's Be Prog! My Friend Festival in June 2018, organisers have also confirmed the addition of Katatonia and Oranssi Pazuzu to the line-up.
Named as the ‘Event of the Year’ at this year’s Progressive Music Awards the Barcelona based festival, sponsored by Inside Out Music, have also announced that Swedish melancholic metallers Katatonia will perform their 2006 album The Great Cold Distance in full, continuing the trend of special band sets at the event.
Drummer Daniel Moilanen states: "In the quiet cold of late June we fix our eyes on the scorching Catalonian sun as Katatonia return to Barcelona and Be Prog My Friend. To celebrate this and to increase coldness, the wings of The Great Cold Distance will once again unfurl. Are you in or are you out?"
They will also be joined by Finnish psychedelic black metal outfit Oranssi Pazuzu. The festival organisers have described seeing them live will be like "diving in to an unlit and terrifying ocean, and we really recommend you come and live the experience with us."
With more artists to be announced soon the line-up for Be Prog! My Friend 2018 now features A Perfect Circle, Sons of Apollo, Katatonia, Pain of Salvation, Plini, Gazpacho, Oranssi Pazuzu and Persefone.
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.
