ProgStock Virtual Series, Lancaster PA

ProgStock Festival, the American Northeast’s Only International Progressive Rock Festival proudly presents Virtual ProgStock 2020! The pandemic has closed music venues and brought in-person live music performances to a screeching halt, however... Virtual ProgStock 2020 will be streamed LIVE on Saturday, October 10 from the Hamilton Stage Theater of the Union County Performing Arts Center (UCPAC) in Rahway, NJ, and on Sunday, October 11 from the Temple Stage at Tellus360 in Lancaster, PA. With the pandemic in mind, and the rules and regulations in place, these shows will not have an in-person audience, so this is the ONLY way you can see them! We will be taking every precaution to protect the health and safety of our bands and crew. The Virtual ProgStock 2020 shows will all be full-band, full-production shows with theater sound and lighting! It will be just like you are actually here, but everyone gets a front-row seat! Show times (all times are in US Eastern): Sunday, October 11: 1PM: Solar Federation - A Rush Tribute 4:30PM: Cell15 8PM: Crack The Sky The individual performances on StageIt are separate shows. Audience members will purchase a ticket to each performance individually, not the whole night as a block. Since our live-streamed events will only provide a virtual audience for our venues, we are holding this fundraiser to help support UCPAC and Tellus360 through this crisis. The funds raised here will help offset the costs of operating the venues for our livestream events and will be matched with in-kind support for the events by our friends at these venues. https://fundraising.fracturedatlas.org/progstock-festival Donate $100 and get one ticket to the show of your choice on October 10 or 11 (a $10 value). Donate $250 and get tickets to three shows (an entire day or any three shows you choose, a $30 value). Donate $400 and get tickets to all six shows (the entire weekend, a $60 value) and our eternal and unconditional love (priceless). Donations are being processed by Fractured Atlas on behalf of ProgStock Festival. ProgStock is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of ProgStock must be made payable to Fractured Atlas only. The value of each ticket received is $10. Any contribution above that amount is tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Please help us support our home venue, UCPAC, and our new partner venue, Tellus360, so they can survive this crisis and return to staging live events when such things are allowed again! Pricing: Virtual ProgStock 2020 shows will have a minimum ticket price of $10.00 (100 Notes), with prices in US Dollars. You can pay more, if you have the means, and you will also be able to tip during the show with your StageIt Notes. Tips show up on the screen as colored bars and many artists view them as the alternative to applause! We encourage you to support the artists at this difficult time. StageIt is all about experiencing music in the moment, duplicating the live music experience as closely as possible. You have to be there to see it, just like you would in a venue, so shows are only available on their site during the performance window. Details for StageIt: Shows will be presented on StageIt. To participate, you must have a StageIt account. If you don’t yet have an account, here’s what to do: 1. Go to stageit.com (on a laptop or desktop, the site is not mobile-friendly for opening accounts, purchasing Notes/tickets, but works on mobile for viewing) 2. Click Sign Up (upper right corner) 3. Create a username and password 4. Click "Buy Notes" (10 notes = $1) – The StageIt system sells Notes in minimum intervals of $5 (50 Notes). 5. After choosing how many Notes you want to purchase, choose your payment type - it'll be credit card or PayPal (with PayPal, you do not need to have an account, you can use a credit/debit card as a guest). 6. Go to the direct ticket link for ProgStock Presents and purchase tickets to the shows you want to watch. 7. You will also be able to tip the artists before, during and after the shows with Notes. Consider loading up your account now, so you can have some fun with tipping while supporting your favorite artists.
