This year’s annual RoSfest will be headlined by Caravan, Beardfish and Collage, with seven other acts appearing over the weekend of May 2-4 at the Majestic Theatre in Gettysburg, Philadelphia.
The lineup is completed by Clepsydra, Thank You Scientist, Sound Of Contact, Elephants Of Scotland, Subsignal, Red Sand and Fright Pig.
Organiser George Roldan says: “As you’ll see from the bands we have signed for 2014, RoSfest is in development. There’s a steadily increasing number of fine new bands that comes forth that we feel deserve the chance to play at a festival such as ours. Some are established with a small following already, others are fresh entities just starting out.
“We feel we have an obligation to those new artists to make them somewhat better known – especially when conditions for recording artists in general and new artists in particular are as challenging as they are.
“We take care to sign better-known bands too. Beardfish are one of the top names among the new generation of progressive rock bands, and in Caravan we managed to sign one of the few remaining giants from the golden age.
“RoSfest 2014 has a somewhat higher percentage of lesser known bands than before – we hope our audience understand and support this slight alteration in approach.”
