IQ, Magic Pie, RPWL for Summer’s End

IQ, Magic Pie and RPWL have been named as headliners for the 12th edition of the Summer’s End prog festival.

It’s the first time since its inception that the full lineup has been revealed at the same time. It also features Damenek – Guy Manning‘s latest project – Karnataka and Ghost Community, among others.

Summer’s End once again takes place at the Drill Hall in Chepstow, Wales, from September 30 to October 2. And ticket prices have been frozen at last year’s rates of £115 for Hero, £100 for Sponsor and £80 for standard access.

Organisers say: “Day tickets and day splits will be announced soon. Remember that the festival sold out last year – so early purchasing is recommended.”

Tickets are on sale now. Magic Pie return to the bill after being forced to drop out last year, to be replaced by The Enid.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
