Not that I am encouraging festival wars, but ProgPower XII has failed to satisfy many prog fans in 2011. Glenn is gambling on a lineup of new and unfamilar bands. Nows the opportunity for BarFest to fill the void with any number of quality bands such as Cloudscape, Darkwater (the return), Masterplan (or Jorn), Seventh Wonder (PP popular band for 2010), Arena (if they tour again), Circus Maximus (PP crowd pleaser), Cornerstone, Cryptic Vision (under-rated Florida band), Shadow Gallery (now that they are playing a few shows. Be the first to have them play California), Tomorrow's Eve, When The Empire Falls, Vanden Plas, Blind Guardian, Any Jeff Scott Soto project, Andra Matos (could you be the first to land him in the States?), Everon, Silent Memorial, Threshold, or Van Canto.
