Progress Festival was the first event to bring excited music lovers to Pinky's Farm in Rock Camp, W.V., this year. Performances by musical acts — including M.H. and His Orchestra, Toy Soldiers, and Blacksburg, Va.'s own Boogieburg Soundsystem — made for a melodious weekend of song and dance.
Artistic display was the theme of the festival, both on and off stage. According to festival organizer John Clockwood, "The goal of the festival was to generate an avenue where artists [could] express themselves."
The Progress Fest sign, which began the weekend as a blank canvas, was soon painted by enthusiastic attendees. "It was so amazing seeing people help out — being responsible for their avenue of expression," Clockwood wrote.
