If you’re a fan of prog rock and metal and happen to find yourself in Spain this June, there’s really only one place you’re going to want to be – in Barcelona, at Be Prog, My Friend.
Staged over two days in the picturesque Poble venue not far from the Montjuic Olympic Stadium – formerly home of Sentinel Daily editor Scott Adams‘ beloved RCD Espanyol – the festival is set to play host to some of the biggest names in progressive music over the (hopefully) balmy nights of June 29 and 30th.
Headliners A Perfect Circle (Friday 29th) and Steve Hackett (Saturday 30th) will of course draw most attention, but a mouthwatering undercard of attractions of the calibre of Pain of Salvation, prog metal supergroup Sons of Apollo, alt.prog behemoths Baroness and Australian prog sensation Plini is sure to set the pulse racing with fans of progressive music everywhere salivating like so many Pavlovian pooches at the prospect of such a mouthwatering musical smorgasbord.
Tickets are available now, with day passes available for a very reasonable eighty five euros for the Friday or seventy five for the Saturday. A ticket for the whole shebang will set you back a mere one hundred and forty euros on the door.
