About The Event
A story that began at the legendary Marquee Club in London's Wardour Street finally arrives at the chapter PROG journalist Martin Kielty describes as "Solstice becoming the band they were always meant to be"
On the new album ‘Light Up’ out January 13th 2023:
‘Utterly sensational!’ Greg Spawton, Big Big Train
‘Wow! - that's a great sounding album! Very Solstice, and a wonderfully dynamic vibe. Evokes the spirit of the band I first saw in the 80s, but with very much a ‘here and now’ production sound that brings with it the wisdom of those ensuing years'. Jerry Ewing, Editor PROG mag.
And live shows:
“Solstice - absolutely outstanding! This band are riding a wave of inspiration right now. The current line up is amazing with each of the eight onstage playing their part to the full. It has to be the happiest and most joyful band on the circuit!” TPA
With the beguiling presence of new vocalist Jess Holland and following the release of 2020 album Sia, Solstice have become THE band to catch live this year. With a string of high profile festival appearances from Glastonbury to Milan, the band’s star continues its rapid ascendence while UK, US and European festival promoters alike add Solstice to their lineups.
The new album, Light Up, will no doubt continue their upward trajectory bringing their music to an ever growing audience. Loved by luminaries like Steven Wilson and Greg Spawton of Big Big Train, Solstice remain a band you’ll never find in the mainstream yet whose music continues to enthral music fans old and new.

La Maschera di Cera are on their first tour of the UK, but make no mistake, this band are an established force to be reckoned with. A swift glance at their 20 year history with seven studio albums behind them, one of which they released in both English & their native Italian. They have made 2 albums with Franz Di Cioccio (PFM drummer and vocalist) as producer. This should tell you that this is a band above and beyond the average. There's a further half dozen live albums released too and they are regularly invited to perform at some of the biggest festivals in Europe, they have played twice in USA (2007 and 2009) and will play in Canada next May. It's absolutely astonishing to think that this band has been right around the globe but has yet to perform in the UK. Well, they are finally coming, so get your tickets now before word gets out to their many fans.
