Yes Announces Yestival Quadraphonic Prog Festival

Yes has announced the first-ever Yestival, a "day-into-night musical adventure in full quadraphonic sound," set to take place August 3 at Camden, New Jersey's Susquehanna Bank Center.

Yes will serve as the headlining act for the event, performing both the Close to the Edge and The Yes Album albums in full.

"This is a concept we've been trying to put into motion for some time, and only now we've been able to turn it into reality," bassist Chris Squire said in a statement. "We're looking forward to starting Yestival out in the Philadelphia area, which has been a Yes stronghold since the '70s."

They will be joined by fellow acts Renaissance, Carl Palmer's ELP Legacy, and Genesis tribute act Musical Box - which will commemorate the 40th anniversary of 1973's Foxtrot by performing "The Foxtrot Show."
