ProgStock Festival (, The American Northeast’s Only International Progressive Rock Festival, will take the stage for its seventh straight year from October 6th through October 8th, 2023, at an exciting new venue, the Williams Center in Rutherford, New Jersey.

Doors open for regular passholders at 4:00PM on Friday, October 6 and at 11:30AM on Saturday, October 7 and Sunday, October 8.

In-person attendance at ProgStock 2023 includes a seat in our historic theater, opportunities to meet, greet and get to know our artists, and the chance to witness unique and spontaneous things that only happen at ProgStock. For those who can’t attend in-person, ProgStock offers live-streaming of our staged performances during the festival.

Performers on our main stage include AD ASTRA, Travis Larson Band, The Mahavishnu Project, Erik Norlander, Aziola Cry, Randy McStine, Matt Dorsey Band, Rachel Flowers, Dave Kerzner Band, Dave Bainbridge & Sally Minnear, Mystery, Unitopia, and special guest appearances by: Patrick Moraz of YES and The Moody Blues, Michael Sadler of SAGA, and Joe Deninzon of Kansas.

Just outside our theater doors, Bob Moog Foundation Plaza will host some of the most unique and memorable happenings at ProgStock, led by our very own Robeone, Robert Schindler. In our lobby, the Bob Moog Foundation will present a special exhibit dedicated to the life’s work of Patrick Moraz and in Spring Hall, Michelle Moog-Koussa, daughter of Bob Moog and founder of the Bob Moog Foundation, will host a reading from the biography of Bob Moog by Albert Glinsky, “Switched On: Bob Moog and the Synthesizer Revolution.” Spontaneous performances, listening parties, and many more once-in-a-lifetime experiences await you in Bob Moog Foundation Plaza every day at ProgStock.

Fine art exhibits and features will be provided by Paul Whitehead, album cover artist for Genesis, and a fan favorite at ProgStock; Annie Haslam of Renaissance, Intuitive Abstract Expressionist; and by Deane Arnold, the world-renowned pumpkin sculptor featured on the Food Network.

Additionally, there will be a separately ticketed pre-festival show on Thursday, October 5, starting at 8:30pm Eastern time, featuring an acoustic performance by the Dave Kerzner Band opening for the Argentinian Genesis tribute band, Genetics, just off their recent tour backing Steve Hackett in South America.

ProgStock Presents Virtual Series Announces Virtual ProgStock 2020

ProgStock Festival, the American Northeast’s Only International Progressive Rock Festival, is proud to bring you the ProgStock Presents Virtual Series.

The pandemic has closed music venues and brought in-person live music performances to a screeching halt. Accordingly, we have had to cancel ProgStock 2020. We don’t know how long we will have to wait before it will be truly safe to stage a festival, but we will be back! Meanwhile, we will be bringing music right to you with some great shows from artists performing live in their homes or home studios. The series is being presented every Saturday night, 5PM – 10PM US Eastern and started on August 1, 2020.

The individual performances on StageIt are separate shows. Audience members will purchase a ticket to each performance individually, not the whole night as a block. Some shows will be 45 minutes and others will be 90 (or longer), so we may have as few as three shows or as many as six each night, with some nights starting at 4PM US Eastern to accommodate artists streaming from Europe.

ProgStock, the American Northeast’s only international progressive rock festival, will come to you virtually with full-production, full-band performances streamed live from the Hamilton Stage Theatre of the Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway, New Jersey on October 10th, and from the Temple Stage at Tellus360 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on October 11th and will feature Total Mass Retain YES Tribute Band, Solar Federation – A Rush Tribute, Mile Marker Zero, Cell15, Gnarbot, and Crack the Sky!

StageIt is all about experiencing music in the moment, duplicating the live music experience as closely as possible. You have to be there to see it, just like you would in a venue, so shows are only available on their site during the performance window.
