So here were are, beautiful Loreley and Night of the Prog Festival…
Lesoir have just played and will post a photo later. Very good they were too with some nice mellow spacey sounds mixed with more bombastic prog. Two pretty girls too, bargain!
Bumped into Bill Hubauer from the Neal Morse band…
The Gentle Storm and Anneke Van Giersbergen has lost her voice, but she still sings great and is determined to put on a high energy show…
Pendragon – sounding very, very good!
The Neal Morse band – live a million years, you will never see better! Amazing!!
Claude Leonetti enjoying the first day – Lazuli play tomorrow. Fabulous band…
Andrew Latimer and Camel – smooth, very, very smooth…
Welcome Proggers – we kick-off Night of the Prog Festival Saturday with young English group Luna Kiss…
Temperatures hit 36 degrees here yesterday = cold beer on doctor’s orders!
Ladies and gentlemen, the very wonderful Haken, with their blend of Prog Metal and Gentle Giant…
Sorry folks, lost data connectivity for a few hours. In the meantime, we saw Sylvan playing their new album, Home…
What a great band! The crowd went wild for Lazuli and their symphonic, Celtic Prog…
Changing gears, tone, almost genres. The Enid!!
See what you’re missing??! If you love prog then you have to come to Night of the Prog Festival at least once in your life!
Excellent set from Riverside. Not only a nice selection from their back catalogue, but a couple of new songs from the forthcoming album, Love, Fear and the Time Machine.
Fish playing Misplaced Childhood!! Massive crowd and big emotions all round…
Mornin’ all! Here’s Special Providence from Hungary. If you like your prog on the technical side, a bit jazzy, a bit metal, a bit Canterbury… Amazing musicians!
Marko Adam and the Special Providence guys are the big find for NotP X!!!
Special Providence are a tough act to follow. Total change now with IO Earth with their symphonic, new-age Prog. Fabulous guitar playing and, my goodness, what a beautiful singer!!
True Proggers, Lazuli are here the whole weekend and meeting the fans. Note the Haken t-shirt…
Roine Stolt with his “other” band, Kaipa Da Capo…
Pendragon‘s Nick Barrett…
Pain of Salvation playing Remedy Lane – beyond awesome!!
Pain of Salvation, kicking some serious ass!
Boys and girls, Pain of Salvation are officially back! Amazing!!!
Steve Rothery band. Lavender for the second time in 24 hours!
Quite a mix of characters. The pretty girl’s named Freddie and she’s well into Long Distance Calling. The other couple I didn’t catch their names, but have seen the0 around all weekend…
Prog royalty – Tushar & Stolty!
Mr Steve Hackett, playing Genesis…
Daniel Gildenlöw meeting & greeting. What a lovely bloke!!
Some happy campers!
And here’s the host for the weekend, Olivia!!
Supper, apparently, is ready. Small confession here – can’t stand Genesis…
Watcher of the Skies and that’s the final photo from this year’s Night of the Prog Festival at Loreley. It has been absolutely fabulous. Full write-up and proper photos on TPA soon!! Signing off from the banks of the Rhine…
