Ulver Announced For Be Prog 2017
"Be Prog! My Friend! represents one of the most innovative and unique festival experiences I have ever experienced. In a market festooned with ever-blossoming independent festivals and hordes of already established events, it manages to stand up and stand out. Thanks in part to its idyllic and blissful setting, alongside the organiser’s approach to an event celebrating thought provoking music, the event leaves its mark on you."
That is what Phil Weller said of the festival when Manchester Rocks travelled to sunny Spain earlier this year. Boasting a line-up that included Opeth, Steven Wilson, Magma, The Pineapple Thief and more, it was a stunning festival that stole our hearts.
Now the festival have announced the first band of the 2017 edition, the inimitable Ulver. Read the official statement below:
Be Prog! My Friend have announced that it will return in 2017 on 30st June and 1st July with Norwegian experimental music collective Ulver.
