ArcTanGent’s latest line up announcement has been hand-picked from the Sargent House label and management roster including Deafheaven, Mylets, Helms Alee, Marriages and Emma Ruth Rundle making a total of 5 bands from them so far for this year. Last year Sargent House had Russian Circles, And So I Watch You From Afar, TTNG, No Spill Blood and Mylets all play.
Deafheaven (Saturday) join The Dillinger Escape Plan (Friday) and 65daysofstatic (Thursday) as headliners of Bristol’s incredibly popular ArcTanGent Festival.
Cathy Pellow from Sargent House said: “We had a really great time at ArcTanGent Festival last year and this year we’ll be coming over from America again this year en masse. It’s really great to have a festival that brings together all these different types of alternative, left field music fan in one place – we all just feel so at home with that crowd. So wherever you live in the world we’ll see you for a big old party in the UK in August!”
Acts already announced for ArcTanGent include Talons, Her Name Is Calla, Vennart, British Theatre, The Algorithm, Rolo Tomassi, Tangled Hair, Flood of Red, 100 Onces, Prosperina, Latitudes, Black Peaks, 11Paranoias, Body Hound, Tacoma Narrows Bridge Disaster, Gum Takes Tooth, Cleft, AK/DK, Alpha Male Tea Party, Valerian Swing, We Never Learned To Live, Trojan Horse, Polymath, Sonance, OHHMS, Alright The Captain, Obe, Patchwork Natives, Downard, Pocket Apocalypse, Juffage, Vodun, Crows An Wra, IEPI, Vasa, Eschar, Lambhorn and Steve Strong.
With tickets launching on the 31st January, organiser Si Maltas says: “In just over a week we’ve massively smashed our previous records for ticket sales so it’s looking really good for a sell-out. A lot of this is obviously down to the huge response to Dillinger, 65days and all the other amazing bands we announced last week.” Si also mentioned that “although there are still around 20 acts to be announced the smart ArcTanGent faithful should grab their tickets sooner rather than later if they want to come back this August!”
To attend the “super-fans” Thursday night of ArcTanGent a three-day festival ticket is required. The Thursday line-up includes sets from 65daysofstatic, Mylets, Cleft, Alpha Male Tea Party and AK/DK plus a very special guest still to be announced. These bands will not be appearing elsewhere during the weekend.
