ProgStock Festival, the American Northeast’s Only Progressive Rock Music Festival, Returns for its Third Year to the Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway, NJ, October 11-13, 2019

ProgStock Festival, the American Northeast’s Only Progressive Rock Music Festival, will return for its third year in 2019, and will once again be held on Columbus Day Weekend, October 11-13, 2019, at the beautiful Union County Performing Arts Center (UCPAC) in Rahway, New Jersey.

ProgStock Festival was founded to give artists and fans in the genre of progressive rock a place to play and experience their favorite music in a great environment. ProgStock’s main stage will feature music that most radio hosts would find to be too long and too complex to play on-the-air. Dancing in 7/8, indeed, is left to fans who are accustomed to calculating high math in their heads. However, the festival presents a variety of rock that can be enjoyed by any music lover.

ProgStock Festival provides the artists, attendees and their families with a great place to share their talents and love for music in a family-friendly environment. Artists mingle with the fans and share experiences as well as music and art. The venue, a renovated vaudeville-era theater, provides everyone with a comfortable place to listen to the music with phenomenal sound. The City of Rahway provides everyone with a hub where they can enjoy the festival, enjoy great food and beverages, shop, relax and recover in a beautiful hotel room, and easily hop on a train from and to Newark International Airport or New York City.

Here is our complete band lineup for the festival by day:

  • Simon Phillips – Protocol Box Set (Part One)
    by John Wenlock-Smith on August 18, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Simon Phillips is a legendary drummer in modern music, his résumé features a staggering list of greats, including Jeff Beck, Judas Priest, Michael Schenker and many others, but his 30-plus years as the drummer for Toto (after the gardening accident heart-attack death of Jeff Porcaro in 1992). Simon ended his stint with Toto in 2014 [&am […]

  • North Sea Radio Orchestra with John Greaves & Annie Barbazza – Folly Bololey: Songs from Robert Wyatt’s Rock Bottom
    by Roger Trenwith on August 17, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Quite a while ago, I noticed that the quite wonderful London based chamber rock group North Sea Radio Orchestra plus guests were performing a live version of Rock Bottom, the 1974 first post-accident solo album from the now British National Treasure otherwise known as Robert Wyatt, for Italian and French audiences. This seemed like a [&am […]

  • Elephant9 – Psychedelic Backfire I / Elephant9 & Reine Fiske – Psychedelic Backfire II
    by Mel Allen on August 16, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    The Norwegian powerhouse trio Elephant9, after releasing five studio albums, take the opportunity to document their live experience, with not just one but two special releases. The act of releasing live albums often instigates debate about the purpose, with comments that it never captures the true excitement and it’s just a money-making exercise, etc. There [&am […]

  • The Tea Club – If/When
    by Friedrich Kunzmann on August 15, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Music tightly bound to the term Progressive Rock often shows the tendency of sounding generic. The same old Mellotron thickening curvy harmonies, a syncopated 7/8 meter driving down the same old lanes toward a dramatic chorus or a complex hook performed in unison by guitar and keyboard breaking out into thick canonic layers are only [&am […]

  • Magma – Zëss
    by Basil Francis on August 14, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Since the dawning of the new millennium, Christian Vander has been quite content to rest on his laurels, only re-entering the studio to re-record pieces that never made it to the studio back in the ’70s (and even some that were; see 2014’s re-imagining of Rïah Sahïltaahk). Not counting Rïah Sahïltaahk or 2015’s Slaǧ Tanƶ, [&am […]

  • Flying Colors Announce New Album ‘Third Degree’

    Flying Colors are back! Their third album is getting released in October and here’s the full press release. Flying Colors will be releasing their brand new album ‘Third Degree’ on 4th October via Music Theories Recordings. You can pre-order it … Continue reading &rarr […]

  • We Are Kin – Bruised Sky
    by Tony Colvill on August 13, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    It’s been a long long time, hasn’t it? A good couple of years, which saw Emma Brewin-Caddy working with Cantor Semper in the hiatus. A close harmony group with musical accompaniment, in my view, and very nice it is too. Daniel Zambas has been accumulating keyboards and taking on work, leading to him now being [&am […]

  • Magic Pie – “Fragments of the 5th Element”
    by Rob on August 13, 2019 at 1:28 pm

    One of the most consistent bands in prog is Magic Pie. Sure the name is odd but they are prog, right? “Fragments of the 5th Element” continues their tradition of what I call edgy prog rock. Oft times, prog rock … Continue reading &rarr […]

  • Loomings – Hey Weirdo!
    by Roger Trenwith on August 12, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    You called…? Hey Weirdo! is the strangely gentle and gently strange second album from multi-national outfit Loomings, now based in Strasbourg. The album arrives a mere four years after their debut, which was on the now seemingly sadly defunct AltrOck label. This one is independently released, and continues the subtle meanderings through a displaced Canterbury [&am […]

  • Henry Kaiser / Anthony Pirog / Tracy Silverman / Jeff Sipe / Andy West – Five Times Surprise
    by Roger Trenwith on August 11, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    The download version of this comes with a 40-minute bonus track! Jeez… anyway, we’ll get to that later. Comparisons are pretty lame, and an easy cop-out for the amateur scribbler, but I have to say that on first listen, at eardrum-rattling volume (my better half is away at the moment), the fierce flurries of electric [&am […]
