ProgDay mascotFlor de Loto and Sonar are no strangers to us here at Exposé. We've reviewed numerous albums — check the artist pages for the listings. Infinien is new to us, but looks extremely promising, and we hope to tell you more in the future.

From ProgDay's website:

ProgDay is an annual outdoor festival of progressive music featuring artists from all over the world. Some bands have come from as close as North Carolina, and others from as far away as Sweden, Italy, Venezuela and Indonesia. ProgDay has been held every year since it's birth in 1995, making it the longest running progressive rock event in the world.

In a world where middle-of-the-road festivals around the world are competing to present the same middle-of-the-road bands, events like ProgDay continue to scratch the itch for sounds that are out of the ordinary.
