Discussion in 'ProgPower USA' started by panzermastery, Sep 7, 2013.
Extremely hard to get shirts here in US! Was wondering if they had any good ones at PrpgPower??
Also did any bands have special event shirts for the fest?
They have a black and red jersey that has the logo on front, and on the back it says something like "Swedish Heavy Metal Since 95"
I never even saw any Wolf merch.
I would have liked something with the logo with the werewolf silhouette on it, but I heard they just had the logo.
The Wolf Merchandise was out starting on Friday....
How in the world did you miss that?
The only one I saw that was event specific was Armored Saint's.
Circus Maximus had 2 ProgPower specific ones - the white Reach Within promo shirt, and the black one with ProgPower and the dates on the back.
The only Armored Saint shirt I saw was Symbol of Salvation, what other shirt did they have??
The SoS shirt said ProgPower on the back.
That's the one. On the back it did say Progpower with the date. They probably should have advertised it as such but it was a specialty date shirt.
Yeah, this was one really surprising thing I discovered at the fest.
The bands really did not bring much in terms of merchandise.
Is this the norm?
Actually, this year felt like it had a bit more band merch than usual. It's tough to judge as a whole because some bands don't get their merch to the tables before the doors open so it just sort of appears mid-fest, some Saturday bands have their merch there on Friday while others don't until Saturday, etc.
You would think the bands would want to bring as much possible to a one off Festival appearance. Any long running band knows that attendees at fests are more prepared to spend $$$ than at a regular tour stop. I suppose for overseas bands its more to bring and then dealing with taxes, tarrifs, etc.
I was surprised to see so few CDs being sold.
I had hoped to pick up the latest from WOLF from the band.
That's likely a lot of the issue. I'm not sure how much of a cut Circus Maximus gave up to MerchBooth for having them handle their merch situation this year, but I would imagine that what they lost in percentage, they made up in volume due to having multiple shirts.
I actually think the pre-order of the CM Lounge shirt was brilliant, and I'd LOVE to see more bands do that if they're doing a special event shirt. It makes it easier from a fan's perspective, not having to rush to the merch table to get your size, and it would seem to make it easier from the band's perspective in knowing how much to print and transport to the venue.
Simon of WOLF here.
First off, thank you for an incredible festival, we had a blast there.
Regarding merch we had 2 different baseball tee´s, not different in printing but coloring. One Black/Red and one Orange/Black.
We also had a Girlie tee with the Absinthe print, one Stretch dress with logo and Hot Pants.
We would really have loved to bring more designs but it wasn´t really possible to get things with us.
You are more than welcome to get in touch with us and get stuff over the net.
I hope you all had such a good time as we had and I hope we meet again soon.
Simon - WOLF
So they did have women's underwear for sale . I thought I was imagining things.
Hey Simon, I'm a long time fan and was very pleased to finally see you live. You guys gave us a great show.
Hope you'll come back to North America soon (with hopefully a stop in Quebec, Canada as well).
I'll proudly wear my Black/Red Wolf shirt when seeing the mighty Saxon next Saturday in Montreal.
