ArcTanGent Festival announce first headliner Meshuggah

By Kelly Ronaldson

ArcTanGent Festival have announced Meshuggah as the first headliner for 2019.

Swedish progressive metal pioneers Meshuggah will be one of three headliners, marking their only UK show of 2019. “Our first festival headline show in the UK is a big deal,” the band told Metal Hammer. “It’s something you strive for. We’re bringing the most extreme show of our career!”

Festival booker James Scarlett added: “When I’m booking the line up for ATG I’m looking for bands that are left-field, forward-thinking, challenging, progressive and maybe even a little bit mind-expanding. Meshuggah are all of this and more. To have them closing our main stage is truly an honour and I think may well end up being the best ever headline set we’ve had at ArcTanGent.”

The three-day festival, set on Fernhill Farm, runs from 15th-17th August 2019. Tickets are available from the festival website now.
