I saw nine bands at ProgDay XIX/2013 Labor Day weekend. Here's a few photos of a few of the bands.

A really even-toned set of bands, all great stuff.

Friday
Rob Martino (Chapman Stick), Local 506 Friday

Note: website has not been updated to reflect the actual playing order that happened.

Saturday
Mavara (Iran) - Solid.
Miriodor (Canada)
Corima (US) - Like Magma.
Oblivion Sun (US)

Sunday
Out Of The Beardspace (US)
Thank You Scientist (US)
Herd Of Instinct (US)
simakDialog (Indonesia) - Loved this band.

Stupid heavy storm shut down simakDialog after an hour of play, but the day was ahead of schedule and so we got almost a full hour. Went home, watched the creek rise a lot.

First I was sorry to hear that the northeast US progrock festival NearFest is canceled for this year - I hope the event returns in 2012 as I'd like to try and go then. However, for 2011 ProgDay XVII is on schedule for Labor Day weekend in Carrboro NC.

I also noticed that the ProgDay Encore compilation of recordings from early ProgDays is on sale and down to $29 for a seven-CD box set. That's a great deal.

ProgDay finally updated the web site to confirm that ProgDay XVII will be happening again over Labor Day weekend this year. The rest of you have fun at DragonCon.
