Mike Portnoy’s Progressive Nation Sets Sail In Feb 2014
Mike Portnoy‘s Progressive Nation Festival returns to active duty early in 2014, only this time it will be sailing the seas of the Caribbean between February 18-22.
Transatlantic, Jon Anderson, Kings X, Spock’s Beard and Riverside are all among the artists lined up to play the four day event. Other acts scheduled to appear include Bigelf, Jolly, Beardfish, Pain Of Salvation, The Dear Hunter, Next To None and Tony Harnell & Bumblefoot.
“We are so excited to take part in this historic maiden voyage and look forward to sharing this one of a kind event with fans from all around the world,” says Portnoy. “And rather than a 4 band bill like previous Progressive Nation tours, we have expanded the bill to OVER A DOZEN of today’s greatest progressive bands, musicians and artists!”
The whole event takes place on the luxurious Norwegian Pearl heading from Miami to Great Stirrup Cay and Freeport, Bahamas. Say the origanisers: “This music festival at sea gives you an experience that a land festival just can’t match. In addition to 4 days in the beautiful Caribbean and all the amenities of a cruise ship; you will enjoy music from morning ‘til night with over 40 shows on multiple stages, along with activities, Q&A’s, panels and workshops from your favorite artists. This is one vacation that will leave you inspired.”
