Episode 75: Progmeister 2 Festival Preview

March 13, 2012 at 10:08 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , )

This is the 75th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. This show represents a break from my ‘best of 2011’ shows, focusing instead on the forthcoming Progmeister 2 Festival, which takes place on Saturday 9th June at The Studio in Hartlepool. There is no feature album this time, instead we’ll largely be focusing on tracks by artists appearing at the festival, plus there will be an interview with the festival’s organiser. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks to where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 1 hour and 3 minutes. Downloaded file is 57.7 MB.

Thanks to Steve for the interview and thanks to everyone for listening – I hope you’ll consider attending what promises to be an excellent festival on Saturday 9th June. Please leave a comment if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). I will be back for the next episode, more of a traditional one (whatever that means!), and then not long after that will be the second and third of my ‘best of 2011’ shows.
