VOTING HAS NOW CLOSED!

Thank you to everyone that voted - more than any other year. The results will be published in the next issue of Prog. On sale December 31.

For many reasons, 2020 is unlikely to be a year many people are going to want to remember. But despite the pandemic and whatever other hardships life has thrown at us over the last 12 months, there’s still been some great art made in 2020, and it wouldn’t be right for that to be ignored.

So it’s time for you to decide who progged your world in 2020. Let’s rightly celebrate some great prog talent who continued, often against the odds, to entertain us with new music releases, what few live shows there were, live streams and events during lockdown and beyond...

To vote you can e-mail us your choices using the subject line ‘Readers’ Poll 2020’ to prog@futurenet.comClosing date for entries is December 4. We look forward to seeing your choices.
