Sat 18th July

Please CLICK HERE for tickets.

The profile of this festival has been on the rise for years, and this year couldn't have hoped for a better line up of acts.

FISH will be headlining on the Saturday night, as we also share the bill with Riverside, Lazuli, Sylvan, IO Earth and Luna Kiss. If you wanted to make a full weekend of it, other headliners include STEVE HACKETT and CAMEL.

Musician Pub

The Musician Pub, Leicester (UK)

Fri 31st July

Please CLICK HERE for tickets.

One of our favourite venues, we're returning to the Musician for the third year in a row. Why? Because you couldn't ask for a nicer more passionate group of people promoting and running a venue. It has an atmosphere saturated with positive energy, and these guys really care about the acts they invite. We hope you'll support them as much as you're supporting us.

We will have support from Progressive-Acoustic act, Jack Arthurs.

The Bridge Show - Live at Union Chapel

Written by Super User. Posted in Enid News

We are delighted to announce the launch of our latest live concert CD and video, The Bridge Show! 

The concert was recorded and filmed at the Union Chapel, London on Tuesday 31st March 2015 by EnidLive and Jeff Cousins. Friday 4th September 2015 sees the official release of the concert video and sound-track. The proceeds from those of you who pre-order now will be helping us to fund the ambitious DUST TOUR which begins in October.

ABOUT THE BRIDGE SHOW

Set in the make-believe world of ENILAND, the show opens with the fictional character QUEEN ENID addressing the audience with a speech entitled “ENILAND CAN TAKE IT”. The performance continues to use videos throughout the show to pose cynical questions about the strengths and dangers of nationalism, capitalism, entitlement, smoke-screen government projects, free-press, propaganda and self-sacrifice.

FEEDBACK FROM THE BRIDGE SHOW

“An experience that lives way beyond the confines of this time, this space. It's The Enid entering the most enticing, engaging and engrossing phase of their career.” Malcolm Dome, Prog Magazine

"If you have the opportunity to attend this show, jump! The musicianship is outstanding and the keyboard playing sublime. A seated gig, no mosh pit, and a complete delight." Tony Colvill, The Progressive Aspect

"If this show is your first introduction to the band don't be surprised if you sit open-mouthed through much of it and go in search of more." Liz Medhurst, Metal Talk

"Resourceful, constantly inventive, The Enid provided us with an endless succession of ideas and moods – offered without restrictions – filled with colours and intensity. Provocative, dramatic and incredibly inspiring." Neil Mach, Raw Ramp Music Magazine

"In what would turn out to be a masterclass of prog rock, The Enid transcend mere prog to deliver an exquisite performance of musical delight and visual splendour." Simon Dunkerley, Get Ready To Rock

"I really struggle to put them into a genre or even sub-genre as I think they have just rewritten the rule book and created their own category." Sabrina Beever, Get Your Rock Out
