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.
