RosFest USA live review
Venue: Majestic Theater, Gettysburg, USA
We head to Gettysburg for this year's Rites Of Spring Festival
The Rites Of Spring Festival (RoSFest) is now widely regarded as the jewel in the American progressive crown. Fans and artists from across the globe converge upon Gettysburg for the three-day event.
Friday begins with Virginia band Kinetic Element, who, after a hesitant start, usher open the festival with vigour and gusto.
First night headliners Magic Pie have developed mightily over the past decade, with a lexicon of musical moods; one moment delicate and balletic, the next, snarling with almost Deep Purple Made In Japan-era ferocity. It’s a truly royal performance.
On Saturday, No More Pain produce a thrilling set, filled with power, dynamic and impressively mature songwriting for musicians so young. Circuline are equally enthusiastic with a melodious blend of neo prog and brooding ballads.
