This past September, the Atlanta venue Center Stage treated fans to four days of progressive-metal utopia at the eighteenth edition of the ProgPower USA festival. The sold-out event hosted twenty-one international prog- and power-metal bands with exclusive performances by some longtime favorites. The highly anticipated lineup featured MD Hall of Famer Mike Portnoy in a rare appearance with his Shattered Fortress project. The event’s gear sponsors included DW and PDP drums and hardware, Evans heads, Sabian cymbals, Promark sticks, and Shure microphones. The nineteenth edition of ProgPower is scheduled to take place at Center Stage on September 5–8, 2018.
