New progressive rock festival in Texas

Some enterprising music fans in Ausin, Texas have decided to take the plunge and stage a progressive music festival. We've been covering some of the great artists in that city, and some of them will be taking part: Transit Method, Proud Peasant, and Aaron Clift. The event is set for June 13, 2015.

Voyager festival poster

Voyager is a music festival celebrating all forms of art that attempt to go “beyond the boundaries” and create something new. It was borne from a love of progressive music, which by definition is an exploration of new and interesting musical landscapes–that pulls in elements from varied musical styles, challenges conventions and makes use of advancements in instrument technology.
We have a thriving and growing community of musicians and artists who are keeping the vision of progressive music alive by striving to move beyond the boundaries of convention and exploring, be it by the injection of tonal and rhythmic complexities, unusual song structures, novel forms of instrumentation, or tasteful blending of styles.

It'll all be happening at The Rusty Mule, Austin, Texas. Stay tuned for more coverage — we'll keep you posted. (Note: The venue has changed since the initial announcement.)
