A 70’s Progressive Rock Event

FarFest will be a multi-day musical event over Columbus Day weekend that showcases progressive rock bands from the 1970’s. Several bands have reformed exclusively for this festival, and for most musicians, it will be their first ever U.S. appearance. FarFest will emphasize production values that focus on recapturing that 70’s vibe.

While many of the performers at FarFestmay have had relatively limited commercial success in America, their artistic vision continues to inspire a new generation of fans and musicians worldwide. Performing alongside these legendary 70’s bands are several outstanding contemporary exemplars of the 1970’s progressive manner.

Farfest represents an historic opportunity for performers and aficionados alike to gather in a majestic, yet intimate setting to celebrate the resurgence of an extraordinary musical tradition that just might reverberate far into the future.

The inaugural Farfest will take place at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, Delaware on October 4th – 7th, 2012.
