Its most recent edition was held earlier this month at Center Stage in Atlanta, Georgia [Sept. 12-15], with Sinbreed, Amaranthe, Epica, Beyond the Bridge, Solution .45, Symphony X and others.
ProgPower USA began in 2001. The very first festival was February 23–24, 2001, in Lansing, Illinois, just outside of Chicago, at J.J. Kelley’s.The subsequent events have been held in Atlanta, Georgia, at Center Stage Atlanta [formerly Earthlink Live]. The festival has a wide reputation for high quality and a laid-back atmosphere. Band members frequently socialize with fans, and numerous artists have been known to attend even when not playing, including D. C. Cooper, Matt Smith of Theocracy, Jon Oliva of Savatage fame, Lance King, members of Evergrey, Dustin Mitchell and Curtis Morrell of Katagory V, Nick Van Dyk [Redemption], and Urban Breed [Pyramaze, ex-Tad Morose].
ProgPower USA continues to reach new fans and artists, because it is a great opportunity for both bands and fans. Many European bands have made their first [or only] North American appearances at the festival. Many fans who cannot [or do not] travel to see those bands in Europe have a unique opportunity to see them closer to home at ProgPower.
