ArcTanGent Festival, which takes place from Thursday 15th until Saturday 17th August 2019 at Fernhill Farm, Cheddar, Somerset, has announced its first act and first headliner for next year - Swedish progressive metal pioneers, Meshuggah.
Meshuggah will be one of three headliners and will be playing their only UK show of 2019 on the Saturday at ArcTanGent, the festival of Math-rock, Post-rock, Noise-rock, Alt-rock and everything in between.
ArcTanGent's festival booker James Scarlett says: "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."
Previous acts at ArcTanGent have included Shellac, Converge, Explosions In The Sky, Russian Circles, Nordic Giants, American Football, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Deafheaven, La Dispute, Animals As Leaders, Cult of Luna, Deerhoof, This Will Destroy You, 65daysofstatic, Fuck Buttons,Black Peaks, Rolo Tomassi, Heck, Arcane Roots and many more.
