Manchester Rocks Announces Progathon Festival

Spires Announcement  

There's a huge amount of awesome progressive bands who call Manchester their home. But we've always felt that there hasn't been enough shows celebrating that fact and bringing the bands together to really make a scene of it and so, it is with great pride and excitement that we can announce the Manchester Rocks Progathon.

For two days (March 5-6th 2016) at Rebellion Manchester we'll be celebrating all things prog in and around the city with 16+ bands and a few extra surprises thrown in too.

We'll be announcing a new band everyday Monday 30th November - Friday 4th December. On Monday we announced the heavy arse, progressive death metal stalwarts Spires - Official. Tuesday saw up and coming heavy music mongerers Prognosis announced. Barmy trio Fantasist joined the bill on Wednesday, swiftly followed by the doomy goodness of Under on Thursday.

More details to follow over the next few days. This promises to be a mega weekend - we have so much lined up.
