The Seaprog Central Committee has announced that they will stage a second festival in 2014. This small festival in Seattle focused on avant-prog for 2013 - we'll see if that trend continues into the future.

From the Facebook announcement:
We're delighted to announce that we'll be carrying the positive energy of this year's festival forward with a second edition of Seaprog, to be held June 21-22, 2014, again at the lovely Columbia City Theater. The CCT proved to be the ideal venue in every respect, and we were thrilled to hear that they're eager to host Seaprog again. (There will likely be a Friday kickoff event again as we had this year.) Please note that the organizers need a good long rest and will not even begin to think about artist bookings for a long time to come, so prospective performers, please hold off on submitting to us until such time as we post guidelines (seriously). Onward and upward!
