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:

  • Toto – 40 Tours Around The Sun
    by Alex Driessen on September 15, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Toto is a band that divides music fans into two camps, pro or con, and there is no middle ground. You either condemn the group for its silky smooth productions, catchy tunes and (too) high hit content, or you embrace them on the basis of their undisputed musical capabilities, melodic music and writing qualities. I [&am

    Islington Assembly Hall, London Saturday 7th September Resistance Album Launch Event The launch of a new IQ studio album is a special event – they only happen about every 4 or 5 years, so it’s understandable that there was a definite air of anticipation and expectation in a packed Islington Assembly Hall. What would the [&am

  • Justin Hayward
    by Geoff Ford on September 13, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Symphony Hall, Birmingham Tuesday 10th September 2019 When Justin Hayward plays Birmingham it inevitably feels like a home-coming. Even though he was born in Swindon (“that place that everyone passes on the M4”, he laughs), Birmingham is the home town of prog rock pioneers The Moody Blues, of which Justin Hayward was such a vital [&am

  • Tool – Fear Inoculum
    by Roger Trenwith on September 12, 2019 at 5:30 pm

    Ah, the joys of writing about a band with no preconceptions. You may think it strange, but until I listened to this album I don’t think I’ve knowingly heard anything by Tool. This band are evidently HUGE on the prog metal scene, especially so in their home territory over The Pond in the U. S. [&am

  • King Of Agogik – After The Last Stroke
    by Leo Trimming on September 11, 2019 at 5:43 pm

    After the Last Stroke is the seventh album by German multi-instrumentalist Hans Jörg Schmitz, who releases solo albums under the curious soubriquet ‘King of Agogik’. This name came from a humourous exchange experienced by Schmitz when he was playing with a covers band (the graphically named ‘The Assholes’!) when the guitar player stopped playing in [&am

  • Red Kite – Red Kite
    by Roger Trenwith on September 10, 2019 at 5:51 pm

    This Red Kite, from Norway, are not be confused with an alt-rock band of the same name from London, as an internet search can get a tad confusing! Deliciously scuzzy, like a good vibe in an otherwise sleazy nightclub, Red Kite enter our audio world with some pleasant meandering for a minute or two before [&am

  • Justin Hayward
    by Geoff Ford on September 9, 2019 at 6:52 pm

    Moody Blues’ legend Justin Hayward is back on the road, in September, for an 8-date UK tour All The Way, a celebration of his 50-plus years as one of most-influential musicians of our time. “I’m always so thrilled to have the opportunity to tour in the UK,” Justin said, “particularly at this time in in [&am

  • Rob’s Recommendation Roundup: Volume 14
    by Rob on September 9, 2019 at 6:36 pm

    To start things off, we have the long awaited fourth album by Noekk, “Waltzing In Obscurity.” I reviewed their EP “Carol Stones and Elder Rock” from last year which was an all acoustic affair. I had wondered if that was … Continue reading &rarr

  • Magic Pie – Fragments Of The 5th Element
    by Leo Trimming on September 8, 2019 at 5:58 pm

    Norwegian progressive rockers, Magic Pie, return with their fifth album, appropriately called Fragments of the 5th Element. As those familiar with Luc Besson’s fine 1997 cult (and rather bizarre) Sci-Fi film ‘The Fifth Element’ will know the ‘Fifth Element’ turned out to be ‘Love’. It appears that ‘Love’ in many forms, both positive and negative, [&am

    The Wharf, Tavistock Saturday, 31st August 2019 Two very good bands, one night, at Tavistock’s wonderful The Wharf. Great venue, frequently punching above it’s weight with attractions, and a few good places to eat near by. First up for this double header was Zio; the brain child of Jimmy Pellagrosi (Ex Karnataka) and a set [&am
