Episode 214: Summer’s End Festival Preview

This is the 214th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO LISTEN but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. If you prefer, you can subscribe to the show via iTunes by sticking feeds2.feedburner.com/TheEpilepticGibbonPodcastMusicShow into the ‘Subscribe to podcast’ area & then you’ll get the new shows as they become available. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). This latest show is a preview of this year’s Summer’s End Progressive Rock Festival, which is taking place on the 6th, 7th & 8th of October, in Chepstow. I’ll be chatting to the organisers about this year’s festival and previewing the line-up, including tracks from most of the bands performing over the three days, plus I’ll be suggesting some acts for future years of the festival, and we’ll be revealing some exciting news too. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
