BARONESS ADDED TO BE PROG! MY FRIEND 2018
Following the recent announcement that A Perfect Circle were one of the headliners for Be Prog! My Friend 2018, the festival have now added Baroness to the line-up.
The organisers comment – ‘formed in 2003 the US based band provide another vision of what progressive music can be. Mixing sludge, stoner and progressive rock, albums such as ‘Red’ are a masterpiece’. We know the crowd at the festival will fall in love with Baroness instantly. Please give them a warm welcome!’
With more artists to be announced soon the line-up for Be Prog! My Friend 2018 now features A Perfect Circle, Sons of Apollo, Baroness, Pain of Salvation, Plini, Gazpacho, Oranssi Pazuzu and Persefone.

Held in the beautiful open air surroundings of Poble Espanyol – a huge stone built architectural museum – the site is one of the most important and striking landmarks of tourism in Barcelona.
