Godspeed You

The 4th year of ArcTanGent Festival will see Godspeed You! Black Emperor join the already announced American Football, MONO, Toe, La Dispute, Sikth, Three Trapped Tigers and Meet Me.

Organiser James Scarlett says “Godspeed headlining ArcTanGent is going to be incredible. We’re giving them a two hour set and their full production which includes some awesome visuals. The ATG “Arc Stage” is already a magical setting for post-rock & math-rock fans but this will take it up another level for sure!” Tickets are on sale now from www.arctangent.co.uk/tickets.

Canada’s post-rock titans Godspeed You! Black Emperor are in their 22nd year as a band and continue to grow their cult following across the globe. Last year’s “Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress” album was met by huge critical acclaim and was summed up by Pitchfork as “Godspeed to its core, moving from thin drones to Wagnerian pomp and circumstance and back again… nothing else out there sounds quite like them.”

There will be over 70 bands announced for ArcTanGent. The full list so far is Godspeed You! Black Emperor (Canada), American Football (USA), Toe (Japan), La Dispute (USA), Sikth, MONO (Japan), Meet Me In St. Louis, Three Trapped Tigers, Rolo Tomassi, Caspian (USA), Nordic Giants, Errors, TTNG, Animals As Leaders (USA), Yndi Halda, Mutoid Man (USA), Agent Fresco (Iceland), Owen (USA), Good Tiger, Raketkanon (Belgium), Talons, Tangled Hair, Body Hound, Axes, Quadrupede (France), Delta Sleep, Samoans, Poly-Math, MNHM (Holland), Tiny Fingers (Israel), Gulfer (Canada), Svalbard, Alarmist (Ireland), Falls, Totorro (France), Alma, Town Portal (Denmark), Dialects, Cheap Jazz, Kusanagi, Chiyoda Ku, SkyHitch, Anta, Floral (USA), A WEREWOLF! and Exxasens (Spain).

 

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.
