The Rogue Independent Music Festival


The Rogue Independent Music Festival

The Rogue Independent Music Festival, also know as Rogue Fest, was a two-day festival of progressive rock and art rock held annually in Atlanta, GA from 2002 to 2006. The festival was conceived after the promoters spent much time traveling to other progressive rock and art rock festivals throughout the United States year after year to listen to the music they enjoyed. In 2002, the promoters of Rogue Fest decided to hold a festival in their home town of Atlanta, GA and so The Rogue Independent Music Festival was born. [ [http://www.progweed.net/info/news/4-30rmf.html News - April 30th, 2002 [www.progweed.net ] ] For the first three years, The Rogue Independent Music Festival was held at The New American Shakespeare Tavern in Atlanta, GA. In 2005, the fourth year of the festival, that location was not available because the date was moved from July to June and Rogue Fest was moved to Jake's Toadhouse.
