Be Prog! My Friend in Spain - live review
Venue: Poble Espanyol, Barcelona, Spain
Prog travels to Barcelona for this two-day festival, featuring Animals As Leaders, Marillion, Anathema, Devin Townsend and Ian Anderson
Whatever way you look at it, thi year’s Be Prog! My Friend has to be viewed as a triumph. Given the arrival of the three-day Barcelona Rocks festival, which is held on the same weekend, the packed crowds pay testament to Be Prog!’s pulling power, abetted by another brilliant line-up that spans generations and progressive genres.
It’s a triumph for the music, too: all 10 bands playing over the weekend deliver above average sets. Throw in the great weather and glorious setting, and you end up with the kind of festival experience you wish we could have back here in England.
