Another visit to Crescendo Prog Festival

I visited Crescendo Prog Festival in August, 2015

As soon as we arrived we where greeted with smiles and hugs. People had loved us two years ago, it felt good to be back. We arrived in Royan, close to Bordeaux just in time for the festival, only time to drop our bags where we would sleep, make sure to bring the merchandice, head over to the festival.
