The Festival

The fourth edition of Be prog! My friend returns to the place that saw it born and grow, Poble Espanyol, gathering once again the best progressive rock and metal bands in the world.

Although since 2014 artists such as Opeth, Steven Wilson, Anathema, Devin Townsend, TesseracT, The Pineapple Thief, Magma, Agent Fresco, Camel, Meshuggah, Katatonia, Riverside, Ihsahn and Alcest have performed on its stage, this edition will be headlined by Jethro Tull and Marillion. They will be accompanied by the Norwegians Ulver, Anathema, Animals As Leaders, Mike Portnoy’s Shattered Fortress and Caligula’s Horse as well as Devin Townsend Project, Leprous and Jardín de la Croix providing national representation.
