After five editions of the Festival Prog-Résiste in Soignies, Les Intemporelles is born in 2017 of the desire of four associations to combat the standardization of taste and cultures.
We want to slow down, rediscover our identity and our territory. We want to slowly make choices in a fast-paced world.
Alter Ego promotes artists, participates in the Music Day and has produced several Festivals. CCS develops a cultural and creative center in Soignies. CCBLC encourages local cultural initiatives. CCRC is the driving force behind the cultural network in the Central Region and supports dissemination, creation and lifelong learning.
Music: where does it come from? How was it created? Who are the artists who compose and interpret it? Let's focus on the sensation of listening and Let's encourage the audience to slow down.

In 2013, Festival Prog-résiste form a new partnership: Prog-Résiste A.S.B.L., Alter-Ego A.S.B.L., Centre Culturel de Soignies and the Centre Culturel Régional du Centre and proposes a new project developing 4 axes. Inform: listen and watch artists at the service of progressive music, discover the new paths they are exploring. Encourage meetings: between fans, but also between all the actors of this inimitable world of progressive music. Lead participants to live an experience: in expressing themselves, interacting with the environment that they love, often for years. Finally, permanently anchor this relationship: we wish that each issue allows to progress, to develop this enthusiasm and give the inevitably desire... to come back.
After eleven editions, the Convention seeks a new breath, pauses one year and, in 2013, is renewed in depth: new partners, a new venue, a new project. Conferences, interviews, demos, exhibition, music bookshop, bar and restaurant come in addition to concerts and record stands.
In 2014, a free outdoor concert opens each day the Festival: the opportunity to present a group, having a drink at the Bubble Bar.
In 2015, the Convention becomes the Festival Prog-résiste.
The Convention Prog-résiste was born in 2001, in collaboration with the Spirit of '66. The goal: to strengthen ties with the magazine readers.
