Night Of The Prog Festival XVI returns to Germany’s world heritage site Freilichtbühne Loreley on July 14-16, 2023. Leprous have now been confirmed as Sunday night headliners – they join an exciting line-up that includes Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets, who’ll be headlining on the Friday with a special Echoes show.

Leprous – whose vocalist Einar Solberg releases his debut solo album, 16, in June – will close the festival, which has been bringing astounding sounds to discerning audiences since 2006. Joining Sunday’s bill are Soen, Esthesis and Germany’s Panzerballett (featuring Australian drummer Virgil Donati).

Friday’s line-up includes Scotland’s Abel Ganz, Alex Henry Foster and Anneke van Giersbergen, who will be performing a set of Kate Bush songs. On Saturday, The Musical Box will perform the Genesis‘ The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway Show, with the original costumes, staging and projections for the final time. Wishbone Ash – who’ll play a special Argus show – and Franck Carducci also join Saturday’s line-up.
