Further news of The Summers End Festival, which will takes place at Lydney Town Hall on October 7th, 8th, 9th 2011.

This year we have decided to put 3 day tickets on sale immediately for those that want to get their tickets sorted out good and early, and who are willing to take a leap of faith on the continued quality of the festival!  There will be 2 types of early ticket, and these will go on sale at Midnight on Sunday 27th March :

Sponsors Tickets.  Priced £85. Those adopting the “Sponsors” package will receive a 3 day ticket to the festival, an exclusive “sponsors” T shirt, and at least one other exclusive Festival-related goodie to be confirmed.  It’s also a brilliant way of contributing to the organisation of the Festival.

Early Bird Tickets.  With 3 day tickets likely to be priced AT LEAST £60 we are offering an early bird 3 day ticket at £55 up until 1st May 2011, when normal 3 day ticket prices will apply and Saturday / Sunday tickets will also become available.

We are also excited to report 3 more acts for the Festival:

Sunchild, from the Ukraine, are one of several projects to feature prolific and talented keyboard played Antony Kalugin.  This symphonic prog band have now released 3 albums, including last year’s magnificent “The Wrap”.  This will be their first live appearance in the UK. www.antonykalugin.net/sunchild.html

Our two opening bands this year both come from Europe.  Firstly, Holland’s brilliant Casual Silence bring their metal-tinged prog to the Festival.  The band released their first of 4 albums in 1997, with their latest, “Vertical Horizon” was just released.

Invertigo are a German band formed in 2007.  Their debut album “Next Stop Vertigo” released in 2010, is one of the finest we have heard in recent years, combining dynamic prog with brilliant songwriting.
