The Summers End Festival to be held at Lydney Town Hall, Gloucestershire on October 8,9,10 is delighted to announce that the superb Sylvan will take their place at the festival one year late. We are also thrilled to announce our Saturday and Sunday openers – Dead Heroes Club from Ireland and Multifuse – who are best described as European!

Our next announcement, in about 7 days, will feature: The launch of our 2010 website, the draft schedule for Saturday and Sunday, plus first news of ticket sales and prices.

Sylvan, from Germany, have released a succession of superb and hugely popular albums over the past 11 years, mixing strong playing with intense emotional melodies and lyrics. Having had to postpone their appearance last year, we welcome them to the Festival at last!

Dead Heroes Club, from Ireland's, are winning huge praise for their classic prog style which also draws inspiration from the great Irish song writing tradition. Having already headlined at the Peel in London, we are thrilled to have a band of such stature kicking off the main part of the festival.

Multifuse thrilled us the first time we heard them, and we immediately knew we had to invite them to play the festival. The band are the brainchild of Provence based English multi-instrumentalist Peter Fallowell and feature singer Cherie Emmitt alongside musicians from the UK, France and Italy! Think Renaissance combined with Magma and you might get some idea of what this amazing band sound like.

Damn, that sounds tempting...! But I really don't know how to get there...
Anybody willing to pick me up at London airport and sharing a room/tent/whatever with a snoring old (oh, 42 is not old here, right?!) fart?
Ron, do you plan on going, btw?
Keep prog alive - see it live!
