ArcTanGent Festival Saturday main stage co-headliners Cult of Luna who will perform a special UK exclusive show, and Lite who will be a European festival exclusive, lead the latest additions for the festival happening from Thursday 20th until Saturday 22nd August 2015 at Fernhill Farm, Cheddar, in Somerset.
Johannes Persson from Cult of Luna said, "The UK has always had a special place in our heart. It is by far the country that we have toured most extensively so it is a home away from home. We saw 'Beyond the Redshift' as the end of the 'Vertikal' era for the UK, but we couldn’t turn down the offer from ArcTanGent. The line-up speaks for itself and they have given us everything we need to give the 'Vertikal' era a dignified end."
These bands join the previously announced headliners Deafheaven, and The Dillinger Escape Plan, and 65daysofstatic, as well as Cleft, Alpha Male Tea Party, AK/DK, Vennart, Talons, Her Name is Calla, British Theatre, The Algorithm, Rolo Tomassi, Deerhoof, Blanck Mass, That Fucking Tank, Brontide, Mutiny On The Bounty, Delta Sleep, Axes, The Fierce & the Dead, Quadrupede, USA Nails, Maybeshewill, The Fall Of Troy, Joanofarc, Vessels, Lone Wolf, Cousin, Tangled Hair, Flood Of Red, 100 Onces, Prosperina, Latitudes, Black Peaks, 11Paranoias, Body Hound, and more.

In addition to the newly announced bands, organisers confirmed that between the hours of 11pm and 3am special Silent Disco DJ sets will be performed by the likes of You Slut!, Rolo Tomassi, Brontide, Maybeshewill, Talons, ArtScare DJs, Delta Sleep, and Axes.
Organiser James Scarlett added, “We couldn’t be happier with this final list of announcements and I think it gives the line up a great balance from the instrumental (65days, LITE, Maybeshewill) to the heavy (Deafheaven, Dillinger, Cult of Luna) to the mathy (Joan of Arc, The Fall of Troy). It really is going to be one hell of a weekend!"
James continued, "Ticket sales for this year are absolutely flying and we’re on course for a sell out so I’d really recommend people don’t delay, particularly if they want to come to our superfans night on the Thursday - what’s not to love about 65days, LITE and Mutiny on the Bounty all on one stage?"
Other services being provided at ArcTanGent include a shuttle bus service from Bristol Temple Meads station plus boutique & pre-pitched camping and a Sherpa service to get attendees and their belongings from the car park to the campsite.
To attend the Thursday night of ArcTanGent a three-day festival ticket is required. The Thursday line-up includes sets from 65daysofstatic, Mylets, Cleft, Alpha Male Tea Party and AK/DK plus a very special guest still to be announced. These bands will not be appearing elsewhere during the weekend.
Simon continued, "Judging from our ticket sales so far, ArcTanGent 2015 is looking like it is going to be the best year yet. Our three day tickets including Thursday entry are close to selling out so anyone who wants to see the likes of 65daysofstatic, Mylets and Brontide should get their tickets ASAP."
Tickets are priced at £75. An early entry ticket is priced at £20 (allows entry from 1pm on Thursday 20th August 2015). A child (aged 0 to 10 years old) can attend for free.
