American progressive metal act Dream Theater has been announced as the headline act at the forthcoming "Night of the Prog" festival in Germany. "Night of the Prog" 2011 is set to take place on July 8-9, 2011 in Loreley, Germany. Other acts that have been announced include Riverside, Anathema, Eloy and IQ. A festival press release states:

"It took this festival only a few editions to raise to one of the leading progressive rock festivals in Europe - or probably even the world.

"Next to the music and bands that have taken part at the festival editions, the main reason for the success is simply the location! The UNESCO world heritage Loreley is one of the most outstanding open air amphitheaters in Europe. High above the river Rhine, the visitors are overwhelmed by the beautiful surrounding area.

"By this outstanding [ambient] we continue to establish the festival as the "[Mecca] of Progressive Rock.' The hightlights of the past 3 years have been for sure the appearances of Fish, ASIA, Jethro Tull, Roger Hodgson, Steve Hackett, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Marillion - to name a few.

"The tradition to supply a stage for young and emerging artists is one of our major tasks. To give them the chance to play in front of thousands of people will definitely help to create a career."
