Prognosis Festival will showcase the best in modern progressive rock and metal for the second successive year in Eindhoven, Netherlands. After a successful first edition in 2019, the two-day festival returns on March 20 & 21 with an exciting programme of music, talks, clinics and art from the world of progressive music.
Topping the bill are two pillars of the genre, delivering special festival headline performances. Purveyors of Swedish dark metal Katatonia will play an exclusive as-voted-by-fans set on Friday 20th March, collating songs from all across their career of nearly thirty years. Saturday 21st March will close with Liverpudlians Anathema marking the 10th anniversary of their album We’re Here Because We’re Here by performing it from start to finish. Other highlights on the bill include a 50th anniversary show by Dutch prog rock pioneers Focus, the first ever performance of Martin Mendez’s (Opeth) new project White Stones, and prog supergroup Sons of Apollo featuring one-time members of Dream Theater, Journey, and Guns N’ Roses.
Alongside the musical performances, there will be multiple clinics featuring guitar, drum and vocal virtuosos, as well as a conference for those interested in the management, press and promotion side of the music industry. Rounding off the full palette of sensory experiences, Romanian artist Costin Chioreanu will host an art exhibition inspired by the music of Friday’s headliners Katatonia.
Filled to the brim with acts and events to satisfy any taste, Prognosis Festival 2020 is an unmissable event for any fan of progressive music. Weekend and day tickets are now on sale at the festival website.
