Returning on Thurs 16 – Sat 18 Aug to Bristol’s Fernhill Farm, the award-winning ArcTanGent is the ultimate music festival for connoisseurs of math-rock, post-rock, noise-rock, alt-rock and everything in between.
Making their festival debut as Friday night headliners, Glassjaw have been receiving plaudits since forming in the early 90s. Their recently released Material Control album has proved beyond all doubts that this bunch are still at the top of their game. Joing them as Saturday headliners is the mighty shellac. Formed by legendary producer Steve Albini (Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Mogwai etc), it’ll be a festival exclusive for one of the most dynamic live bands around. This set will no doubt be one of most talked about in the festival’s history.
This year, the main stage will be open on Thursday for the first time – headlined by ArcTanGent Festival’s most requested band, And So I Watch You From Afar. The Northern Irish instrumental rock band will be returning to the festival for the fourth time and will be playing their album The Endless Shimmering in its entirety. Joining this already stellar line-up are La Dispute, Arcane Roots, Alvest, Zeal & Ardor, Black Peaks, Vennart, Delta Sleep, Telepathy, People Like Milk Products (Memory Of Elephants & Chiyoda Ku Big Band), Scalping, Wren, Jo Quail, Vlmv, Vasquez and many more.
Quickly establishing a fierce reputation, ArcTanGent Festival has built a reputation for itself as the emerging UK rock festival, both putting on exclusive performances from exceptional, worldwide artists and supporting new, exciting talent.
