Serial entrepreneur, Chris Hillman, owns and manages a number of record labels
As a long term friend of the main organiser of Wokingham Festival, Chris suggested to Stan Heatherington that the festival should be increased by a day, and that his acts would populate that extra day.
And so the prog day was born
It had a totally different feel to it when compared with the Saturday and Sunday. On those days people were there just to enjoy a happy family day of food and drink, and the music provided a backdrop to that, until the evening, when they all got up and danced
Chris’ day was for the fans. They knew every song, and sang along to their favourite acts – and there was a lot of them too, so they made a great chorus for their bands
