ProgStock Festival, The American Northeast's Only Progressive Rock Music Festival, Returns To The Union County Performing Arts Center, Rahway, NJ, October 11-13, 2019

NY 9/5/2019 12:07:35 AM

ProgStock Festival, the American Northeast's Only Progressive Rock Music Festival, will return for its third year in 2019, and will once again be held on Columbus Day Weekend, October 11-13, 2019, at the beautiful Union County Performing Arts Center (UCPAC) in Rahway, New Jersey.

ProgStock Festival was founded to give artists and fans in the genre of progressive rock a place to play and experience their favorite music in a great environment. ProgStock's main stage will feature music that most radio hosts would find to be too long and too complex to play on-the-air. Dancing in 7/8, indeed, is left to fans who are accustomed to calculating high math in their heads. However, the festival presents a variety of rock that can be enjoyed by any music lover.

ProgStock Festival provides the artists, attendees and their families with a great place to share their talents and love for music in a family-friendly environment. Artists mingle with the fans and share experiences as well as music and art. The venue, a renovated vaudeville-era theater, provides everyone with a comfortable place to listen to the music with phenomenal sound. The City of Rahway provides everyone with a hub where they can enjoy the festival, enjoy great food and beverages, shop, relax and recover in a beautiful hotel room, and easily hop on a train from and to Newark International Airport or New York City.

Here is the complete band lineup for the festival by day:

ProgStock 2019 is thrilled to host and help raise funds for the Bob Moog Foundation this year, on the heels of Moogmentum, the grand opening of the brand new Moogseum in Asheville, NC. Bob Moog's innovations in music synthesis revolutionized almost every genre of music. The Bob Moog Foundation, a small 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, carries his pioneering legacy forward to future generations. Its mission is to ignite creativity at the intersection of music, science, history and innovation by providing hands-on opportunities for children and adults to explore the science of sound through Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, the preservation of the vast Bob Moog Foundation Archives, and through the Moogseum, located in downtown Asheville, NC. https://moogfoundation.org

Also, back by popular demand, is our resident artist Paul Whitehead, who designed album covers for a wide range of musical artists including Fats Domino, Genesis, and Van der Graaf Generator. https://www.paulwhitehead.com/
