Exciting news for prog metal fans! There’s a brand new festival emerging dedicated to the genre: Very Prog Festival. Its very first edition will be taking place on October 12-13, 2018 at Le Metronum in Toulouse, France.
Le Metronum, a 600 person capacity venue, welcomes bands round the year and is no newbie to hosting festivals. This time enthusiasts of the progressive genre will occupy its two rooms.
For a new festival VPF has got a brilliant line up consisting of French and international acts, up and coming bands as well as established artists.
The festival will be opened by Amon Stehis – a French project built on the concept of the Seventh dynasty of Egyptian Pharaohs and described by themselves as a “powerful, varied, sometimes bewitching musical and visual experience”.
We will also be able to see Taotopia – a local djent oriented band who released their debut album Nightfall in March 2018, Italian progressive metal five piece Soul Secret, progressive-melodic metal band DGM, a group that has put the small country of Andorra on the map of metal scene – Persefone and French Spheric Universe Experience who are no newbies to internationally acclaimed festivals. Currently working on a new album, they will be performing at Very Prog Festival together with bass player Julien Negro.
Friday’s headliners will be Australian prog metallers Caligula’s Horse. On Saturday same duty will go to American prog metal supergroup Sons Of Apollo.
