2022 Lineup and Set Times
Originally a duo, dark progressive art-rock outfit Antimatter has been the solo project of singer-songwriter/founder-member Mick Moss since 2005 and the subsequent release of the breakthrough album 'Leaving Eden'. Since then, the album 'The Judas Table' was declared 'Album Of The Decade' by Dead Rhetoric, promo video 'The Third Arm' was nominated for Prog Awards 'Video of The Year' and Moss also found the time to moonlight his signature baritone vocal onto the official Armenian Number 1 single 'Broken Smile' (The Beautified Project).
Now over 20 years since Antimatter's formation, and 7 studio albums in, there seems to be no sign of slowing down. Back for 2022, and after a two-year live absence, Moss' project returns to the concert arena with a career-spanning set for Midsummer Prog and an electric band made up of past and present Antimatter album session musicians.
Perfect Storm is a new progressive rock band from the Netherlands. They released their first album 'No Air' on Glassville Records in 2021.
The band consists of highly skilled, experienced musicians who founded the band 3 years ago in Groningen, The Netherlands. Together they have created an adventurous mix of styles, called Perfect Storm.
About The Location
Valkenburg aan de Geul is located in the south-eastern Dutch province of Limburg. Sieges and conquests have been the recurrent theme in the history of Valkenburg, especially in connection with Valkenburg castle, seat of the counts of Valkenburg (or Falkenburg). Valkenburg is no longer a fortified town but it has largely retained its historical charm. These days Valkenburg is especially known for its many tourist attractions, its chalk houses (locally called mergel or marl) and the attractive hilly countryside.
