Welcome to the home of The Summer's End Festival, the UK's longest-running and best-loved Progressive Rock festival. Andy Tillison of The Tangent has twice said from the stage that Summer's End is the 'best prog festival in the world'. We obviously agree but hearing it from one of the world's finest musicians is really special!
We are thrilled to announce the complete lineup for the 18th Summers End Festival. There are now so many UK festivals, it’s becoming increasingly hard to give our audience something different but – once again – we think we’ve achieved that with a very varied lineup. Three terrific headliners, including an exclusive performance and a few surprises!
We are also delighted that the Summer's End 'Introduces' slot has been handed to our friends at Progzilla Radio. We're thrilled with the band they've put forward and we're sure you will be too!
There is still time to get tickets for Winter's End 2023, which also boasts an awesome lineup – www.winters-end.co.uk
"It should definitely be on the bucket list of any lover of progressive music to experience this joyous event if they possibly can".
Stuff to look forward to ...
From the kitchen ...
Henry, Tom and Lauren, collectively known as All Seasons Catering, will be with us again for Summer's End 2023. They have raised the bar for festival food with hand-made burgers, buttermilk chicken strips and Lauren's chocolate brownies becoming as much loved as the traditional Summer's End chilli! And, of course, vegetarian, vegan and GF options too!
From the bar ...
After debuting Kingstone Brewery's cask ales at Winter's End 2023, we will be continuing to work with them for future events. The three beers we carried all went down a treat.
Likewise, the locally produced Core cider (and the bottled McCrindles from the same maker) proved very popular this year.
The Summer's End Festival would like to offer sincere thanks to army of people who help to make the festival happen: you know who you are!
Special thanks to Simon and the team at Headstock for providing Laney amplification, Lydney Music School for the PA & lighting and the team at Chepstow Drill Hall.
