US prog rock masters SPOCK'S BEARD (InsideOut) will headline Saturday night, October 25, with STICK MEN (featuring Tony Levin and other members of King Crimson) finishing off the festival Sunday evening, October 26.

Also appearing will be InsideOut's own BIGELF, another King Crimson offshoot, TU (featuring Trey Gunn and Pat Mastelloto), RICHARD SINCLAIR (Caravan, Camel, Hatfield and the North), BURNT BELIEF (featuring Colin Edwin of Porcupine Tree), JOLLY, PRESTO BALLET, CHEER-ACCIDENT, TILES, SCALE THE SUMMIT, and many others!

PROGTOBERFEST will operate two consecutive stages over its two days, with attendees free to travel between rooms and stages at will. A special VIP ticket option offers meet and greets in the venue's record store, Record Breakers, on the second floor.
