Yes will be leading their very own festival this summer. The prog rockers will head the one-day “Yestival” on August 3rd at Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, New Jersey, where they will be joined by Genesis re-enactors the Musical Box, Carl Palmer’s ELP Legacy, Renaissance, Scale the Summit and more.
Yestival will be heavy on prog classics, with the Musical Box performing around Genesis’ 1972 album Foxtrot. Yes, following a similar format on their current tour, will play through their 1971 album The Yes Album and their 1972 album Close to the Edge in their entirety, along with other material.
Tickets for Yestival will go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. EST through Ticketmaster. Yes have just wrapped up the latest leg in their world tour, and will next play July 6th at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles, California. They’ll end their tour on August 12th at the Murat Theatre at Old National Centre in Indianapolis. For more information, visit the band’s website.
