Russian duo Iamthemorning have been confirmed to appear at this year’s Be Prog! My Friend festival.

Vocalist Marjana Semkina and pianist Gleb Kolyadin, who released their new album Lighthouse earlier this month, will join the likes of Steven Wilson, Opeth, Agent Fresco, The Pineapple Thief and Anneke Van Giersbergen at the Barcelona based event.

Marjana Semkina comments: “It’s a great pleasure for us to join the amazing line up of Be Prog! My Friend this year – such a lovely surprise at the very last moment.

“It’s a great pleasure, but also a great challenge. We’ll be playing the chamber set with our string duo (cello and violin) and some percussion, and you can’t get more different from other bands on the festival. So, we’ll see how the audience responds to such a huge contrast and our almost classical sound.

“It will be our first appearance in Spain and first big prog festival – wow, so many things for the first time. Very exciting.”

Be Prog! My Friend takes place on the 1st and 2nd of July, with tickets available now via the festival website.
