Legendary progressive rock group Magma, founded already in late 1960s, are playing a rare festival performance at Sideways. One if the most genre-defining pioneers of progressive rock, Magma became known for their songs that combine art-rock, jazz and classical music, completed by the addition of their made-up language of Kobaïan. The lore goes deeper: most of Magma’s discography depicts the epic mythology of a people fleeing from the remains of the decrepit Earth and reaching out to space, to the fictious planet of Kobaia. Therefore, one can without a doubt list Magma among the biggest cult heroes in Sideways’ 2019 line-up.
