splendid, memorable manner.
is thrilled to announce that German band SUBSIGNAL has accepted our
invitation to join the ranks of bands to perform at the 2014 edition
of RoSfest. This German band started out as the side project for

as a five man strong unit, the additional members as of 2013 being
David Bertok (keyboards), Ralf Schwager (bass) and Danilo Batdorf
Philadelphia band SHADOW MERCHANT has agreed to entertain our guests
at the traditional Friday night after party. This foursome was formed

are overjoyed to announce that Polish band Collage will perform at
RoSfest 2014. This fine Polish band were one of the pioneering neo
progressive bands, formed back in 1985 and with four classic albums
to their name released during the 1990's. Their specific style, with
the guitar style of Mirek Gil as a strong mark of identity, and
unique melodic songwriting of both band founders and leaders Wojtek
Szadkowski and Mirek Gil made them a household name among just about
everyone with a specific interest in neo progressive and symphonic
progressive rock back then....
RoSfest is thrilled to announce US
band THANK YOU SCIENTIST as the third band on Sunday for RoSfest
2014. This seven man strong unit started out in 2009, and has made
quite a name for themselves in the live circuit in the following
years. Describing themselves as a seven headed monster, other sources
describe the band as a fairly eclectic unit that joyfully blend
elements from jazz and fusion into a progressive rock framework,
adding a touch of metal as additional flavoring....
Legendary UK bands CARAVAN have agreed to sign up as one of our three headliners for ROSfest 2014. With a history going back to 1968, Caravan is one of a dwindling amount of bands around that merits a description as living legends. They were one of the two principal bands in the Canterbury Scene, a movement that saw bands blending elements from progressive rock and fusion with whimsical lyrics, quirky instrumental movements and a distinct English sound - but often without any major superficial likeness shared between the bands subscribed to this style. ...

The case of US band Fright Pig is a
curious one. We received their album, loved what we heard through and
through, and started to check for information about the band and came
up empty. We have mailed with them, spoken with them, but we don't
know who they actually are. But with a debut album like the one they
have made themselves, we knew we had to book them for ROSfest 2014....

SCOTLAND is a quartet of seasoned musicians each with decades worth
of band experience. Their common desire for progressive rock brought
them together, and their debut album "Home Away From Home"
has been met with a lot of praise worldwide.
