The festival Crescendo is an international festival for Progressive Rock, located directly at the coast of the Atlantic ocean, not very far from the famous islands Île de Ré and Île d'Oléron. Attending the festival gives you the unique opportunity to spend part of your day at the beach, or do some hiking or biking in the area, and listen to international prog bands in the evening -- all of this at a beautiful seaside and in a very relaxed and familiar atmosphere!
Fortunately, our French neighbors at last year's Night of the Prog festival told us about this festival in France. After some considerations, we decided to go there this year. Apart from Special Providence, who we had seen at the Generation Prog festival in Nuremberg in spring, we did not know any of the bands who played there beforehand -- so we were up to some (nice) surprises. :)
