Hi All

We are thrilled to announce first details of the eleventh Summers End Festival , which will take place on October 2nd to 4th 2015.

We can announce that all 3 days of the Festival will take place at The Drill Hall, Lower Church Street, Chepstow.  The venue is well located, a short distance from the Town Centre and close to banks of the River Wye, and in "feel" is similar to our old home of Lydney Town Hall, guaranteeing that unique "Summers End" atmosphere.

Weekend tickets will go on sale on Monday February 2nd, alongside Hero and Sponsor tickets as usual. More band  information will be released shortly, but these are the first 5  booked to play:

Pallas , the Scottish legends are returning to live work after a short hiatus to work on their excellent new album Wearewho weare, so we are delighted to welcome them back to the festival after their headline appearance in 2008.  Was it really that long ago?

3rdDegree from the USA will be making their first festival appearance outside North America.  Currently completing their fifth album, they are best known for their superb 2012 album The Long Division given rave reviews on both DPRP.net and Progarchives. 

Introitus from Sweden mix traditional neo-progressive rock with elements of folk and metal in a formula that has produced 3 superb album to date, including last year's Anima.  The band is a family affair, led by keyboardist Mats Bender, his wife vocalist Anna and also includes two of their children!

The Gift from London will be continuing their growing reputation as a live band in 2015 following their 2006 debut Awake and Dreaming and last year's long-awaited follow up Land of Shadows , which saw them tour for the first time as a fully fledged 5 piece.

The Fierce and the Dead, a quartet led by the ubiquitous Matt Stevens, and this year's "curve ball" band, are building a strong reputation for their powerful instrumental music.  Somewhere between Afrobeat and Robert Fripp said Rock-a-rolla magazine.  Who are we to argue?

That'll do so far.
How tall is the stage. The last time I saw Matt with TFATD, he was scaring people in the front row while 'leaving' the stage mid-set, and taking a certain amount of 'stage furniture' with him.
Introitus should be interesting.

I'll be there.  Hopefully P****s will be on last so that I can go early that day.

We have a room for the Friday and Saturday. We will probably leave before the end of Sunday, but would not miss Summers End if we didn't have to.

There's things I haven't told you - I go out late at night
