Have A Cigar: Summer's End
Founders Stephen Lambe and Huw Lloyd-Jones remain modest about the UK’s longest-running prog fest.
“The festivals we really looked up to were in the US – ProgDay, NEARFest and RoSFest. There have been 20 ProgDays and 13 RoSFests. Now that’s longevity. I guess we’re getting there.” Stephen Lambe, co-founder of Summer’s End might sound like he doesn’t grasp the enormity of running the UK’s longest progressive festival, but really he’s just being modest. This October sees the 10th anniversary of Summer’s End; no mean feat for an event that essentially started at the whim of Lambe’s partner-in-prog and Unto Us/ex-Also Eden vocalist Huw Lloyd-Jones.
