How about we progress next year? ProgPower USA Mid-Week Mayhem: Gone ProgPower USA Kick-Off: Gone. It's time to shake things up a bit and kick it up a notch. We will be moving to a new format next year we believe is best for everyone. ProgPower USA XVII will now be a four-day event in the the main theater at Center Stage. Milton Mendonca (Mid-Week Mayhem promoter) & Nathan Block (Kick-Off promoter) will co-promote both nights going forward. I'm also going to throw my hat in the ring with next year to help transition things as well. So, what should you expect? Wednesday will see four bands on the main stage. Thursday will only see three bands. However, these bands will be the "Promoter's Pick." In other words, Nathan will personally book one band, Milton will personally book one band, and I will personally book the headliner that night. After this year, they take over those two nights completely in the future. The only other difference is there will only be two-night tickets placed on sale for Day 1 (Wednesday) & Day 2 (Thursday) initially on November 7th. Individual nights will be sold next summer if there are any remaining. Trust me when I say we are building a roster worthy of getting you to Atlanta for all four nights. Further information on tickets will be announced in the coming weeks. As those that attended the festival this year know, we had to cancel the video presentation scheduled for Saturday night. One of the booked bands withdrew at the last minute. We thought it best to not show the video and confuse anyone. Instead, we are going old school promo style. We will be announcing one band every 1-2 weeks via a video presentation courtesy of our own Art Director, Wayne Joyner. That starts tomorrow at a random time. On behalf of Nathan, Milton & myself, we thank you for your continued support.
