First bands for HRH Prog 3 announced

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMugHRH Prog 3 have announced the first bands, including The Enid, Steeleye Span, Mostly Autumn, The Enid, The Reasoning and Touchstone.

Not totally convinced by the SF and fantasy actors as part of the event, and wonder what message that sends and what stereotypes it reinforces.

    I thought that as well – I mean, McCoy is cool, but I’m not sure why he would be appropriate for a music festival… unless he has a connection to music that I’m not aware of…?

    Suspect this is the organisers making assumptions / stereotyping Prog fans and thinking they will appreciate such guests. I would much prefer to keep guest actors at conventions and guest musicians at music festivals, not together at the same events – I suspect they would be happier, and better appreciated for their particular talents, in those environments anyway.

    Is McCoy actually a big Prog fan?

    Oh… it looks like it’s a Sci-fi Weekender AND Prog festival… combined? Or sharing the same time and space, but different dimensions??

    Curiouser and curiouser…

  5. It is indeed sharing the same weekend with SFW6, the two events will be combining in some way or another!
