Dream Theater – the Grammy winning progressive metal pioneers – have been performing for nearly 40 years, having formed in 1985 at Berklee College in Boston. Band members James LaBrie (Vocals), John Petrucci (Guitars), Jordan Rudess (Keyboards), John Myung (Bass), and Mike Mangini (Drums) — share a unique bond with one of the most passionate fan bases around the globe, as well as all hailing from Long Island. They have been inducted into the Long Island Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2010, and have sold 15 million records sold worldwide.

We are all so incredibly excited to present Dream Theater’s very own prog-metal music festival, Dreamsonic 2023! The lineup for our inaugural run this summer features Dream Theater, Devin Townsend, and Animals As Leaders and is going to be absolutely epic! Dreamsonic promises to be a reoccurring musical event that will deliver history-making nights of amazing music for many years to come! You’re not going to want to miss this one!

John Petrucci

The band’s 1992 opus Images & Words received a gold certification and landed on Rolling Stone’s coveted “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All-Time.” Guitar World placed the follow-up Awake at #1 on “Superunknown: 50 Iconic Albums That Defined 1994,” and 1996’s A Change of Seasons notably soundtracked NBC’s coverage of Downhill Skiing at the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Dream Theater’s most recent release, A View From The Top Of The World, saw the album debuting at #52 on the Billboard 200. The album’s lead track “The Alien” later went on to win the Grammy award for ‘Best Metal Performance’.

Performing ahead of Dream Theater is Canadian musical maverick Devin Townsend, who Metal Injection called a “superb addition to his one-of-a-kind catalog”. Assembled from a barrage of material written during the pandemic, ‘Lightwork’ represents a kind of ‘light in the dark’ while trying to navigate the seemingly endless challenges that life can often present. This tour is Devin’s first North American run since March 2020. Watch the video for ‘Lightworker.’

Animals as Leaders offer more than musicianship and proficiency, a focus on mood, texture,
and emotive power elevating the material in a fascinatingly unique phenomenon. They released their latest album Parrhesia in March 2022.
