All the big festivals of progressive music still seem to happen in Eastern North America or in Europe, but the West Coast is starting to respond with promising smaller events that should draw music fans who are tired of traveling to get their fix.

Organizer Kurt Matson says:

After years of traveling to Prog Rock festivals across the USA. My love of Prog Rock has brought me to this point. We need more live Progressive Rock shows in Northern California! So I bring you NorCal Prog Rock Festival. I hope we can continue doing these for years to come. Come out and support the music with me!

Tickets are on sale, check the website for details.
