PARKING – The post you all have really been waiting for…
FREE parking in the lot at Felician University!
In the upper-left corner of this map, you will see the Felician University Parking Lot on Montross Avenue. Felician University has agreed to allow our attendees to park in this lot throughout the entire festival, for free! This lot sits between Fairview Avenue and Hollister Avenue…but, it doesn’t have it’s own address!
Set your GPS for 217 Montross Avenue, Rutherford, NJ 07070, and you will be taken directly across the street from the lot. You can’t miss it! The walk from there is about one-half mile long, roughly 15 minutes walk.
The map also shows where metered parking spots are, and where unmetered parking starts. As you can see, you can still park quite close to the Center for free, as long as legal residential spaces are available (watch the signs)!
Otherwise, you can always carpool with friends…you will see plenty of familiar faces and make plenty of new friends at this festival! Some area hotels may provide shuttle services to get to/from downtown Rutherford.
Taxi services will be easy to grab (our staff will help you, if needed). Uber/Lyft are available, too…after all, it’s a commuter town!
You can now purchase tickets for each mainstage show on StageIt.com
The individual performances on StageIt are separate shows. Audience members will purchase a ticket to each performance individually, not the whole day as a block.
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 during the performance window. No replays.
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:
Go to Stageit.com
Click Sign Up (upper right corner)
Create a username and password
Click “Buy Notes” (10 notes = $1) – The StageIt system sells Notes in minimum intervals of $5 (50 Notes).
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).
Go to the direct ticket link for ProgStock (StageIt.com/ProgStock) and purchase tickets to the shows you want to watch.
You will also be able to tip the artists before, during and after the shows with your Notes. Tipping is the way to applaud the artists during the show.
Consider loading up your account now, so you can have some fun with tipping while supporting your favorite artists.
In addition to his special performance during the festival, Patrick Moraz will be providing an exclusive treat for our 5-Year Patrons and Prog-Ducers!
On Friday, October 6, at 1:30pm (before the festival begins), Patrick Moraz will be in one of the movie theaters located on the lower floor of the Williams Center, where we will show a video he has selected for your enjoyment on the big screen and he will participate in a special interview.
This special presentation will be included with all 5-Year Patron and Prog-Ducer passes, as an added incentive to support the festival.
The woman whose crystal clear, high-flying soprano vocals earned her worldwide attention as the lead singer of the English classical rock band Renaissance has achieved an entirely new level of appreciation as an Intuitive Abstract Expressionist.
On canvas, Annie Haslam’s unmistakable world of sound is taken into unique vistas of color and vibration, not unlike the flow of her five-octave voice. Transporting the viewer to other worlds and through inner boundaries. It is her goal, to bring healing, serenity and peace through her work.
As well as painting on canvas she paints musical instruments and has a form of synesthesia where she can paint songs by tuning into the person who is commissioning, where she gathers what they feel about the song and what it does to them…
ProgStock 2023 Festival T-shirts and Wristbands have been added to the ProgStock Festival Store for Pre-Order and pickup at the festival merch table.

We have added information about the local hotels we recommend to the festival webpage. In addition, we have secured our first group rate with one of the local hotels, with more to come. Keep checking back over the next couple of weeks for additional booking codes for local hotels in close proximity to the Williams Center.
We’ve been getting a lot of questions about the seating at the Williams Center, so here’s the best way to answer those – the seat map! Those seats you see grayed out – those are our 5-year Patrons! Notice, not everyone chooses the front row.
There are still some really excellent seats available, and you have a week to snag one as a new 5-year Patron, which will reserve your seat for ProgStock 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026 and 2027!
Why become a 5-year Patron?
You get to lock in that favorite seat, but now I’m repeating myself
You get to sneak into the lobby and check out the merch at least 30 minutes before everyone else
You get front-of-line access to the meet-and-greets
You get a really cool merch pack with items donated by our artists along with ProgStock merch (some exclusive to our Patrons, including a special lanyard just like the one worn by our artists and staff)
You get free passes to any livestream we offer in between festivals
Occasionally, ProgStock alumni offer incentives to our Patrons for shows at other venues or on new music releases
You get to help us keep this incredible festival alive – Trust us, it’s an act of love, and every bit of help counts!
And because of that, you get our undying gratitude!
