The venue will have five themed zones namely, Earth, Steel, Wind, Fire & Water, a freaky circus and around 30 prog acts.

Jonni Davis CEO of Chic Festivals, the company behind all the HRH events, said, "We have always felt that the UK market was missing a dedicated PROG festival and as huge fans of the genre we wanted to put on something that honoured the world of PROG both old and new and that draws from all corners of it and that not only embraces the old but also that celebrates the new. We also felt it needed a special location to house this style of event and the Magna Science Adventure, being a renovated Steel foundry with all its different interactive zones, we felt it to be the perfect setting to stage this new experience."

Tickets are priced at £50 a day without accommodation, or £90 for the weekend. Accommodation packages can be purchased when buying tickets. To buy tickets, click here.
