ProgStock 2022 is the sixth edition of an annual, 3-day, volunteer-run event whose mission is to shine light on what we consider to be one of the most exciting and creative genres of rock music, Progressive Rock. Held at the beautiful and historic Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway, NJ, ProgStock is held every year at the beginning of October.
Doors open at 4:30PM on Friday, October 7 (4:00PM for Prog-Ducer level passholders).
On Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9, doors open at 11:00AM (10:30AM for Prog-Ducers).
This year our lineup includes:
Stick Men with Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel Band), Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, Mr. Mister), and Markus Reuter
ProgJect with Michael Sadler (SAGA), Ryo Okumoto (Spock’s Beard, Asia), Mike Keneally (Frank Zappa), and Jonathan Mover (GTR, Marillion, Aretha Franklin)
