ArcTanGent looks even more incredible with new announcement

By Ben Tipple

ArcTanGent had us excited the moment they announced, with American Football, SikTh and Toe leading the charge. With their latest additions they have further upped the ante, confirming La Dispute and an UK festival exclusive by the recently reformed Meet Me In St Louis.

Atmospheric powerhouse Yndi Halda are set to release their first album in nine years next month, and will also play the festival in August. Mutoid Man, Good Tiger, Raketkanon and Svalbard are also on the excellent list.

“We’ve got such an eclectic, international line up this year and I’m very excited,” says booker James Scarlett. “We’ve really expanded our search for bands worldwide and have acts coming from at least 12 different countries and 3 continents. If you’re a connoisseur of math-rock, post-rock or anything slightly outside of the mainstream then ArcTanGent is the only place to be this August!”

“We’ve also got some amazing exclusives. American Football and Toe will be playing their only UK shows of 2016 and when I heard that Meet Me In St. Louis were reforming I was determined to bring them along to the party. This will be their only festival of 2016. We’re not sure how long the band will be back together for so it could even be their last ever show. Any fans of Meet Me In St. Louis really should not risk missing this!”

Those additions are:
La Dispute
Meet Me in St Louis
Nordic Giants
Animals As Leaders
Yndi Halda
Mutoid Man
Agent Fresco
Good Tiger
Tiny Fingers
Cheap Jazz
Chiyoda Ku

ArcTanGent takes place from the 18th to the 20th August 2016.  Tickets are available now via the festival website.
