10 more bands have been revealed in the final line-up for ArcTanGent Festival, which takes place from Thursday 16th until Saturday 18th August 2018 at Fernhill Farm, Cheddar, in Somerset.
Arcane Roots (pictured above) will perform a special electronic show at the festival, in addition to their previously announced main set.
The band commented on their multiple-set booking:
"Over the last couple of years, we have developed a healthy addiction to pushing our little boat out into the wider sea. At first it was tentative, but once we started releasing music without repercussion, it became something we soon felt we couldn't be without. We began to open doors that had previously felt closed off to us and set about exploring music that we had never imagined being part of. Slowly, (very slowly) we managed to find some comfortable new ground. Nothing felt more rewarding than opening ourselves up to that risk and choosing to embrace everything that came our way, so at a farm near Bristol, we'd like to open that experience up to everyone else. It's certainly still an experiment, and certainly still a risk, but i don't think there is anywhere better than ArcTanGent to present these new and challenging facets of our band."
Organiser James Scarlett made a statement about the newly completed line-up:
“All 80 ArcTanGent bands are now announced and for us, August really can’t come soon enough. Having Myrkur on the line up is going to add an extra dimension to what I’m certain is our strongest line up yet and I’m also very excited about the Arcane Roots electronic set, which I’ve been assured they’ve been planning and is going to be very special indeed. As always, I recommend people check out some of the less well known bands further down the line up – there is a treasure trove of amazing music waiting to be discovered!”
The new acts join a line-up which already includes headliners And So I Watch You From Afar, Glassjaw, and Shellac, as well as:- La Dispute, Giraffes? Giraffes!, Pelican, La Dispute, Pianos Become The Teeth, Gallops, Bossk, Alpha Male Tea Party, Arcane Roots, Rolo Tomassi, Ohhms, People Like Milk Products, Svalbard, Tides of Man, Poly-Math, Black Futures, and more, for a total over 80 bands.
