Ok, it’s been a little while coming but LANDMARQ are pleased to announce their shiny new line-up. Woohoo!

Line-up change #1
Step forward lead singer, Wolf Campen. A multi-instrumentalist and songwriter himself, Wolf was delighted to get the call following a series of auditions earlier in the year and is now looking forward to working with the band as they begin some fairly intensive rehearsals in preparation for their appearances in October at the Summer’s End Festival and also the Classic Rock Society.

Line-up change #2
However, another change to the line up occurred when drummer Daniel Martin made the decision to move on from the band as he was relocating back to Scotland to start a business producing original artwork.
Now step forward new drummer, Andy Allen. Andy was already known to the band and although fairly busy elsewhere, musically, he was equally delighted to receive the call to join the Landmarq family.

Existing Landmarq members — Mike Varty, Uwe D’rose, and Steve Gee — agree they are very happy to be up to full strength again and are now looking forward to getting back on stage. The band also have plans to release a new album in 2019 with the writing of new material already well underway.

LANDMARQ live dates 2018:
Sat 06 Oct, 2018 – Summers End Festival
Sat 20 Oct, 2018 – Classic Rock Society

Kyros Replace Southern Empire At Summer’s End Festival

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. Leap of Faith tickets remain on sale via, but will come off sale just before we announce the line up.

Summers End Festival Makes Announcement


Summer’s End Festival – the UK’s longest-running Progressive Rock festival.

We are delighted to announce that the plans for 2017 are already advancing apace and are thrilled to welcome the first two confirmed bands to our line-up – The Tangent and Karmakanic!

The location and venue are not yet confirmed but the dates are.
Summer’s End 2017 will take place on the 6, 7 & 8th October.

As with previous years, we are delighted to offer Leap of Faith tickets for those willing to take a chance on the line-up. The income these early ticket sales generate is vital in allowing us to secure the bands we think you’ll enjoy. Leap of Faith tickets are priced at £105, which is cheaper than a Hero ticket but more expensive than pie and chips. Unless you live in central London 🙂
