ArcTanGent have added Deerhoof, Blanck Mass, That Fucking Tank, Brontide, Mutiny On The Bounty, Delta Sleep, Axes, The Fierce & the Dead, Quadrupede, USA Nails and Cousin to their already stacked line-up!
These bands join the previously announced headliners The Dillinger Escape Plan, Deafheaven and 65daysofstatic, alongside Helms Alee, Cleft, Marriages, Mylets, Vennart, Talons, Alpha Male Tea Party, Alright The Captain, Rolo Tomassi, Tangled Hair and many more.
Of the new additions, organiser James Scarlett said “Obviously we’re very happy about adding the amazing Deerhoof but what really pleases me about this announcement is the amazing UK post and math-rock bands. That Fucking Tank, Brontide, Delta Sleep, Axes. Need I say more?”
No, no you don’t James. I for one am fucking thrilled with the new acts. Can’t wait to be pissed out me tree, watching the likes of Brontide and Axes in a field this summer. Brontide were one of my highlights of the very first ArcTanGent, so I’m excited to see them return!
James continues “We’ve still got around 10 bands to announce over the coming months and there are some absolutely amazing additions including our second stage headliner for Thursday and Friday, plus a couple more additions to the main stage. I can promise the ATG fans will be very happy, so watch this space!”
In addition to the pant-wettingly exciting bands already announced, the ArcTanGent organisers have also announced that there are 10 platinum tickets up for grabs. The platinum tickets are a VIP upgrade enabling the winners to have a glass of bubbly on arrival, backstage access (including a brand new VIP bar), the chance to watch a band of their choice from the side of the stage, priority entrance with VIP camping and backstage toilets, plus a merch bundle! To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is buy your ticket before the 15th March!
In addition to all that, ArcTanGent have joined up with VIP Touring to offer 14 friends the chance to “live like rock stars” at the festival. Each person will be collected from their doorstep in a luxury air conditioned bus and driven to Fernhill Farm for three nights of living like Queens of the Stone Age (it used to be their bus!) These fans will be able to sleep on the bus for the entire festival and enjoy on board comforts such as chilled drinks, mobile phone charging points, a cinema system, a fully loaded iPad and a Playstation4. After the festival, the bus will drop the VIP guests back at their doorsteps.
I will certainly be befriending this group so I can make use of the mobile charging points and chilled beers on board!
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased from www.arctangent.co.uk/tickets/
The first two years of ArcTanGent have been the most fun, and it looks like this third outing might be their best yet! Keep an eye on Birthday Cake For Breakfast leading up to the festival, as there will be more posts coming your way!
