Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate and friends in association with London Prog Gigs present a one day festival of progressive music at the Fiddler's Elbow - Camden, London (UK), with profits to be donated to the World Land Trust.
The World Land Trust buys threatened rainforest, to protect in trust, to stop them getting chopped down. Trees make oxygen, without which breathing is a bit pointless. So protecting the trees is good for the wildlife, and good for us staying alive. A win-win really. We are aiming to be able to raise enough to protect at least an acre.
The event will showcase the diversity of modern progressive rock and related genres.
Acts include -
Axiom - prog rock/metal instrumental trio from Birmingham.
Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate - fusing alt/prog-rock and electronic elements with science and science fiction
Tangerinecat - Anglo-Ukranian blend of punk/electronica/industrial. Featuring rock hurdy-gurdy
The Wood Demons - prog rock infused with pastoral folk-rock
BAFTA nominated live rock film-maker Dick Carruthers (director of Led Zeppelin's Celebration Day in conversation (sta)
