Messenger, Iamthemorning Lead Desertfest Lineup Additions

. (Prog) Desertfest have announced four more artists for the Prog stage at the upcoming London festival. Messenger, Iamthemorning, Sumer and Landskap will now join Sweet Billy Pilgrim and headliners Amplifier at the festival at Camden's Jazz Cafe on Saturday, April 25.

The stage is sponsored by Prog Magazine and curator Jon Vyner from Tidal Concerts says the lineup was chosen to give a cross-section of styles across the genre.

He says: "The bill came together really organically. Amplifier are one of those bands that are both heavy and prog at the same time so they transcend the boundaries and are a great headliner to have.

"I see the Mercury Prize-nominated Sweet Billy Pilgrim as part of the new vanguard of prog who are heading into the mainstream, while Messenger are a great band. Iamthemorning will be making their UK debut as a duo so should generate a lot of interest." Read more here.
