The Story

A Partnership

In 2013, Festival Prog-résiste form a new partnership: Prog-Résiste A.S.B.L., Alter-Ego A.S.B.L., Centre Culturel de Soignies and the Centre Culturel Régional du Centre and proposes a new project developing 4 axes. Inform: listen and watch artists at the service of progressive music, discover the new paths they are exploring. Encourage meetings: between fans, but also between all the actors of this inimitable world of progressive music. Lead participants to live an experience: in expressing themselves, interacting with the environment that they love, often for years. Finally, permanently anchor this relationship: we wish that each issue allows to progress, to develop this enthusiasm and give the inevitably desire... to come back.

The evolution 

After eleven editions, the Convention seeks a new breath, pauses one year and, in 2013, is renewed in depth: new partners, a new venue, a new project. Conferences, interviews, demos, exhibition, music bookshop, bar and restaurant come in addition to concerts and record stands.

In 2014, a free outdoor concert opens each day the Festival: the opportunity to present a group, having a drink at the Bubble Bar.

In 2015, the Convention becomes the Festival Prog-résiste.

the beginning

The Convention Prog-résiste was born in 2001, in collaboration with the Spirit of '66. The goal: to strengthen ties with the magazine readers.
