ArcTanGent Festival have announced 15 more bands for the 3 day festival, set on Fernhill Farm, 16th-18th August 2018 to join headliners And So I Watch You From Afar, Glassjaw and Shellac. The day splits have also been announced, and of course we have all the info here.
British alternative rock band Anathema are one of the bands that have been added to ArcTanGent. They have been together for 28 years and had 11 albums in their career. The band’s most recent release, The Optimist, came out in summer 2017.
Another huge one from the list is progressive metal band Leprous, following the release of album Malina in August of last year. Hailing from Norway the band have also had an impressive career spanning 17 years and five albums. James Scarlett, festival organiser, is particularly excited about this one:
The Leprous album was one of my favourite records of last year so I’m so stoked that they’ll be headlining the Yohkai stage this year, and Anathema playing just before Glassjaw will also be something very special. More than anything though I really urge people to investigate the other end of the line up where they can hopefully find their new favourite band. I’m really excited about some of the newer, smaller acts we’ve announced today like Astralia, Trigger Thumb, La Jungle and The Guru Guru – check them out!
Bands just announced are:
Anathema / Leprous / Tides From Nebula / Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs / Part Chimp / Strobes / Astralia / Hey Colossus / Space Blood / Trigger Thumb / La Jungle / Toska / The Guru Guru / Mugstar / The Big Massive Orchestra
