The organizers of the the U.K. version of the ProgPower festival have announced that ProgPower UK will return for a second edition on Saturday, March 31, 2007 at the Centaur, Cheltenham, England.

Commented the organizers in a statement: "After all the fantastic feedback we had, the positive reviews, the deluge of e-mails, and the massive support we received for ProgPower UK 2006, there was no real choice. We had to do it again. We'll be keeping the same fantastic venue, the same number of bands, the video screens, the metal market, the same production team and staff. All the good stuff! We will also be keeping to our promise of bringing some of the best progressive and power metal bands from all over the world to Cheltenham for another truly international lineup. We hope you will be able to give us your support."

A new website will be launched very soon, and tickets will be on sale at 9:00 a.m. BST on July 1, 2006. The first 100 sold will become Platinum Pass holders for ProgPower UK 2007, with a membership card, early access to the venue, a free event programme (worth £5) and 10% off all official festival merchandise.

ProgPower UK 2006 featured performances from such acts as THERION, THRESHOLD, FREEDOM CALL, ORPHANED LAND, FIREWIND and PAGAN'S MIND.
