News of the sold out Summer’s End Festival – which takes place at the Drill Hall, Chepstow from 6-8 October 2017.
We are very pleased to announce that brilliant young London band Kyros will replace Southern Empire, who have had to withdraw from the festival following the cancellation of their 2017 European Tour. Kyros will play on the afternoon of Sunday 8th October.
KYROS (known as Synaesthesia 2012-2015) formed in 2012 in London, England and consists of Adam Warne on lead vocals and keyboards, Joey Frevola and Sam Higgins on guitar, Peter Episcopo on bass guitar and Robin Johnson on drums. The band display influences ranging from eighties pop – e.g. Depeche Mode and Kate Bush – through to modern post-progressive and alternative rock music such as Muse and Porcupine Tree.
Twice featured as “tips for the top” by Prog magazine, their double album Vox Humana has had rave reviews worldwide, and in May the band made their second appearance at the prestigious Rosfest festival in the USA.
Festival Founder Huw Lloyd-Jones says:
“Kyros are one of the best young bands in prog, and this slot on the Sunday afternoon of the festival will allow them to really showcase what they can do to a sell-out audience. We can’t wait for everyone to experience their live show.”
Summer’s End 2017 is sold out, however we will announce the full line up of our sister festival – the Winter’s End Progressive Rock Festival which is also at the Drill Hall, Chepstow on 27-29 April 2018 -in early July 2017.
