Winter's End announce stage times


Winter's End Festival has announced stage times for this year's event, which takes place at Chepstow Drill Hall from April 4-7. It features the very first UK performance from Dutch proggers Kayak, along with fellow headliners Threshold and RPWL.

"We are delighted that this third Winter's End has been well supported by UK prog fans despite the huge number of other events this spring," porganiser Stephen Lambe told Prog. "This is a great opportunity to see some great overseas bands, in particular the first ever performance anywhere by Cyril from Germany, featuring Marek Arnold, a great friend of our festivals, and a very rare chance to see Dutch legends Kayak."
