British rock royalty Magnum have been added to a stacked HRH Prog VI bill already boasting Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy, Uriah Heep and more!
Celebrating their 45th anniversary, Magnum continue to push the creative boundaries with original members Tony Clarkin and Bob Catley still pulling the strings.
They will be joined at HRH Prog VI by Mostly Autumn, Threshold, David Cross Band and more after nine new additions were revealed today.
And that means 29 bands have now confirmed their place at the world’s biggest indoor celebration of all things Prog.
“HRH Prog V, earlier this year, was probably the biggest residential Prog gathering on planet earth,” said Progster-in-Chief Jonni Davis.
“Prog VI, later this year, is going to equal or exceed that. Adding the second arena means we can fit in more bands and we’ve worked hard to get the bands the fans want to see. We’re delighted to confirm the final line-up.”
Formed in Birmingham in 1972, Magnum’s Chase The Dragon (1982) reached number 17 in the UK Albums Chart, featuring several tracks that would become mainstays of the band’s live set, including Soldier Of The Line, Sacred Hour and The Spirit.
And the band’s commercial breakthrough came in 1985 with the gold-certified album On A Storyteller’s Night – featuring the hit single Just Like An Arrow.
Mostly Autumn formed in 1995 and have built their reputation and following through constant touring. Their music has been heavily influenced by 70s Prog.
Threshold, IO EARTH, David Cross Band, Godsticks, Multistory, The Far Meadow, Wheel, and Sonic Tapestry will join Magnum and Mostly Autumn at Prog VI.
They join the 19 bands already announced including Caravan, Focus, Von Hertzen Brothers, Magenta, Heather Findlay, Touchstone, Hawklords, Edgar Broughton, Krankschaft, The Fierce and the Dead, Third Quadrant, Tirith, Kepler Ten and L’Anima.
HRH Prog VI will be back at Camp HRH, Pwllheli, Gwynedd, in North Wales from November 16-19 2017.
