Be Prog! My Friend have confirmed another two bands for next year’s festival!
With the festival already confirming SONS OF APOLLO, PAIN OF SALVATION and PLINI for 2018’s event, now, the festival have confirmed another two bands for next year’s event. Joining the lineup for next year’s festival is GAZPACHO and PERSEFONE. Speaking about the announcement, the festival organisers say, “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 takes place at Poble Espanyol, Barcelona from June 29-30th. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here.
