Steven Wilson recently announced that he will be headlining Loreley Festival on 13th July. The festival’s current lineup is absolutely stunning, and progressive music fans from all around the world will be making the trip to the famous Loreley Amphitheater for the two day event. The first day of the festival consists of a line up mainly selected by SW, including as his special guests the legendary French band Magma.
Also appearing on the first day are Kscope label mates The Pineapple Thief, and the excellent new band Sanguine Hum. Opeth are headlining on the second day, with The Devin Townsend Project, Caravan and more supporting. Single day, camping and weekend tickets for the festival can be purchased here.

Kscope just emailed this list of their ‘best of 2011′ albums from this year to subscribers of their mailing list. Topping the list is Steven Wilson’s ‘Grace for Drowning’ which was recently nominated for a Grammy award. Blackfield’s third studio album ‘Welcome to My DNA’ which was released on Kscope back in March, is also featured on the list. Be sure to take a look at some of the other artists on the list, as they certainly deserve a listen!
The new episode of Kscope’s podcast has just been posted online! Episode 18 has been titled ‘The Fan’s Summer Selection’, and for good reason. Steven Wilson’s new epic ‘Remainder the Black Dog’ opens the podcast in phenomenal style, and if you keep listening, you will hear other Kscope marvels, including Anathema’s new acoustic/orchestral arrangement of their track ‘Kingdom’. There are also some suggestions for older material, which comes in the form of Porcupine Tree, Lunatic Soul and The Pineapple Thief.
Here’s the description from the website regarding this episode, by Billy Reeves:
Welcome to Kscope, the Post-Progressive Podcast. Billy Reeves here.
Exciting news within: a fantasmagorical piece from the brand new Steven Wilson album, a haunting, skeletal melody from the brand new Anathema album, and a Kscope-hosted event at the gorgeous Union Chapel in north London on September 30th. I’m going!
