The 2018 line up of Progfest will be the strongest yet with Norway’s LEPROUS confirmed to headline all three Progfest festivals, plus headline their own sideshows in Perth and Adelaide!

A massive 24 bands will be taking part across the 3 festivals including some of Australia’s finest acts (on selected dates) such as: Voyager, AlithiA, Orsome Welles, Meniscus, Osaka Punch, Toehider, Breaking Orbit and Dyssidia

Progfest events for Sydney and Melbourne will feature both a main stage and side stage. Respectively named the lost underwater city Atlantis and its God of the Sea ruler Poseidon.

The Poseidon stage starts first in both cities, so get down early and support the newer bands! One day they will become the headliners and you can say you were there from the start!
