Winter's End Progressive Rock Festival have confirmed dates for 2022. The annual event returns to Chepstow Drill Hall between April 7-10.

The event has been postponed several times since 2019 owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, but organisers have now confirmed the 2022 dates, and headline acts Pendragon, Karnataka and German proggers Subsignal.

"Unfortunately, Mostly Autumn have a schedule clash and cannot do this new date, but we are delighted that the new-look Karnataka have stepped into their slot," explains organiser Stephen Lambe. "Alongside bandleader Ian Jones the band features vocalist Sertari and keyboard player Gonzalo Carrera. We’ll be working with Mostly Autumn again very soon!

"League Of Lights have several overseas members and are not able to participate on this new date, so their place is taken by Cyan who themselves are unable to take up their slot at Summer’s End 2021 due to a scheduling clash. Rob Wilsher and Paul Ford, due to play the Thursday support slot to Seyes are also unavailable for that date, and we’ll announce a replacement in due course.
