The Inaugural “Indian Summer Festival” To Kick Off In Poland This September

The first edition of the Indian Summer Festival will take place in Poznań at the end of summer, on September 26 to 27. Hosted by Independent Music Market and Agencja Oskar, this is a special event designed with progressive rock fans in mind.

Legends and rising stars of the genre will perform on the stage of the historic Zamek Cultural Center. There has never been such an event in Greater Poland before! Indian summer, or gossip in Polish, has a chance to become a new tradition.

The event is two magical evenings at the Zamek Culture Center in Poznań, which will surely fall in the hearts of progressive rock fans for a long time. The cast of the Festival is a mix of rock legends and stars and prog rock, a wide range of styles, and finally, a great opportunity to fulfill your musical dreams and see your favorite, often truly legendary performers on stage!

The festival will take place on September 26-27, 2020, in the beautiful setting of the nineteenth-century Imperial Castle in Poznań. A total of nine bands will appear on stage. The composition promises to be really impressive!

This album has a little of both past and present elements in it. Picture the legends of the past such as Van Der Graaf Generator, Renaissance, King Crimson with the modern styles of Opeth, Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson Solo. That is what Until All The Ghosts Are Gone carries throughout it. I believe Anekdoten at times were born 500 years too late given their atmospheric medevil sound on this particular outing. However that is not a bad thing and can serve as a education to any progressive listener or aspiring musician.
The keyboards and mellotron definitely serve as the backbone of the composition. This gives this album a sweet consistency to the listener to be immersed in this journey. The rhythm section between drums and bass are as tight as any album I have heard in a while. Normally I would do a track by track breakdown on a review however Until All The Ghosts Are Gone has such a fluid flow to it that doing so would defeat the purpose of the journey this album beholds.
I very rarely give these out and do not do so lightly, however Anekdoten’s Until All The Ghosts Are Gone gets a 5/5 due to its very original elements.
