From the festival website:

From Woodstock to the Cruise to the Edge; from Star Trek conventions to Comicon; for the past 50 years, people of like minds have gathered to share their passion for the arts. ProgStock is no exception. Just like other famous festivals around the world, ProgStock will be three days of fun, food, merriment, photos, recalling stories, hanging out with old pals, making new friends, and sharing in our mutual love of the musical genre we call PROG.

Friday October 13 will feature the trio of Rachel Flowers, Peter Jones, and Francis Dunnery, then Glass Hammer and EchoTest. Saturday kicks off at 11am with The Tea Club, followed by Resistor, Circuline, Aisles, and finishes off with headliner Echolyn. On Sunday, Cell15 starts off proceedings, then 3RDegree and an event billed as "Randy McStine Presents a Kevin Gilbert Retrospective featuring Nick D’Virgilio, Don Carr and Lloyd Landesman." The evening will close out with Karmakanic and The Tangent. Generous time is slated inbetween performances for artist meet-and-greets.
