American Football and Toe to Play Arctangent 2016

Festival Crowd Header

The world’s only festival for connoisseurs of Math-rock, Post-rock and Noise-rock – the award winning ArcTanGent – is back!!

The first 15 bands announced today for ArcTanGent Festival are American Football (USA), Toe (Japan), Sikth (UK), Caspian (USA), TTNG (UK), Owen (USA), Alarmist (Ireland), Falls (UK), Totorro (France), Alma (UK), Town Portal (Denmark), Anta (UK), Floral (USA), A WEREWOLF! (UK) and Exxasens (Spain). There will be over 70 bands announced for the 2016 event.

ArcTanGent’s grand master band booker James reckons: “Once people have been to ATG, they seem to come back every year. It has this amazing sense of community and really feels like we’re all part of a secret club that the rest of the world doesn’t know about. Watching an unknown, but amazing, band play at midday to a thousand people really helps with my faith in humanity! But nothing compares to 5,000 people gathering to watch the headliners - American Football this year will be out of this world and I guarantee that ArcTanGent 2016 will be the best weekend of the summer!”

Director general in charge of good times, Simon Maltas explains there is also a special treat in store for loyal fans: “we really wanted to reward those fans that have been with us from the beginning so the first thousand people to buy a ticket will get £10 in beer tokens to spend at the bar! I’d expect these to go with in the first couple of minutes though so be quick!”.

The award winning ArcTanGent takes place from August 18th-20th at Fernhill Farm just 10 miles south of Bristol and only 2 hours from London. Capacity is strictly limited to 5,000 and tickets include 3 nights camping, over 70 bands across 4 stages, a silent disco until 3am and excellent food and drink.
