Organiser James Scarlett said, "This year we were keen to come back bigger and better than ever and I think announcing the likes of The Dillinger Escape Plan and 65daysofstatic is a big statement of intent. We’re really close to confirming the other headliners and should have news on that very soon, along with some other amazing bands that are often requested by our fans."
Organiser Goc O’Callaghan said, "We wanted to bring back some of the bands that helped make last year’s ArcTanGent such a success. The VIP Early Entry is an optional night, so it’s really targeted at the super-fans. Bringing back some special guests will excite those who came to the festival in the last two years, and will give new fans a chance to catch a little bit of what they’ve been missing out on."
