TIGER MOTH TALES confirmed for Sunday, 15th July 2018
TIGER MOTH TALES – an English Progressive Rock solo project from multi-instrumentalist Pete Jones. Pete lost his sight at an early age but quickly latched onto music as a huge part of his life. Being a huge fan of Genesis and Steve Hackett it is easy to see that Pete wears his influences on his sleeve and his debut album, "Cocoon" turned into a real gem, with hints of Big Big Train and FROST*. TIGER MOTH TALES’ performance will be a unique experience for all fans of prog music.
Having Pete Jones on stage with Camel on Saturday 14th already, we decided to show his and his band mates’ talent on 15th of July 2018 as well.
The Tiger Moth Tales live shows have been amazingly well received and Pete has got some amazing musicians to back him up in the form of the band 'Red Bazar'. Tiger Moth Tales are delighted and excited to come to Germany to perform you all
THE SEA WITHIN confirmed for Saturday, 14th July 2018
The Sea Within – a new art-rock supergroup formed by Roine Stolt (Transatlantic, The Flower Kings), Daniel Gildenlöw (Pain of Salvation), Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings, Karmakanic, The Tangent), Tom Brislin (Renaissance, Spiraling, Yes Symphonic, Deborah Harry) & Marco Minnemann (The Aristocrats, Steven Wilson, UK, Joe Satriani) will join us on the rock on July 14 to present their very first album - We are already thrilled to listen to the result of this unique collaboration!
Roine Stolt comments on how the project came together: “I think all it started as a suggestion from the record company - putting together a new band, starting fresh, seeing if collective writing could spawn a unique style. Call it a supergroup if you want - I think we can handle that.”
STEVE HOGARTH & ISILDURS BANE (with special guest RICHARD BARBIERI) confirmed for Sunday, 15th July 2018

Winfried Völklein, CEO: “Since 2008, when they performed for the first time at the NOTP Festival, Isildurs Bane has been one of my favorite Bands in the Prog World. With their collaboration with Marillion's H on the Album “Colours Not Found In Nature” they proved that they are really progressive in the real sense of the word.”
STEVEN WILSON live in Bonn on Tuesday, 17th July, 2018
