Festival Crowd Header

ArcTanGent announces more bands, including international acts from Japan and the USA.

Jamie Lenman, Tera Melos, LITE, Enemies, Her Name is Calla, 100 Onces, Tangled Hair, Codes in the Clouds, Bear Makes Ninja, Alpha Male Tea Party and Iran Iran join the previously announced And So I Watch You From Afar, Three Trapped Tigers, TTNG, The Physics House Band, Baby Godzilla, Nordic Giants, The St. Pierre Snake Invasion and Theo.

James Scarlett from ArcTanGent says “There has been a big demand from our fans to book international bands so we have picked a handful that perfectly fit our line up. It’s exciting to be hosting international artists as well as having festival goers travel from all over the world to come to ArcTanGent. It’s something we hadn’t predicted and it has certainly given a different dynamic to the festival.”

Simon Morley from Blood and Biscuits says “We're super excited to have a bunch of our bands playing at ArcTanGent this year. I went along to the first one last year and it was my festival of the summer, such good vibes! The UK has needed a festival like this for a long time and I'm glad someone is finally doing it. It's a festival booked and run by genuine music lovers, not afraid to take risks and stick their neck out for acts they believe in and the best thing is, it's working for them!

This is the second round of announcements for this year’s ArcTanGent with many more bands still to come, including the headliners.
