Leprous To Headline Australia's Progfest 2018
Sydney and Brisbane shows added following 2016's sell out success...
Leprous are to headline Australia's Progfest 2018, topping a bill that also includes homegrown Aussie proggers Voyager, Alithia, Orsome Welles, Meniscus and Dyssidia.
And, following on from last year's sold out success, the Melbourne event has been expanded to also take in fellow East Coast cities Sydney and Brisbane. Leprous themselves will also head out West to play their own shows in Perth and Adelaide.
"Featuring progressive bands of all styles and genres, from prog, post, psychedelic, art rock, metal and everything in between, Progfest is about showcasing bands that think for themselves; bands who rather than following the latest trends, have decided to challenge themselves musically and create music with depth and vision," the organisers told Prog. "Beginning life in 2008, Progfest has grown along side Australia’s love of progressive music, and has become the centrepiece of the nation's burgeoning prog scene."Progfest will appear at:The Factory Theatre, Sydney - January 20
The Triffid, Brisbane - 21
The Corner, Melbourne - 27
In addition, Leprous, with special guests Alithia, will play:
Badlands, Perth - January 19
Jive, Adelaide - 25
