ArcTanGent Festival has announced its first set of bands for the 3 days festival, set on Fernhill Farm, 16th-18th August 2018.

Festival promoter James Scarlett says “We’ve spent the last few months curating some very special experiences for the ArcTanGent faithful… We’ve got GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES! playing their first ever European show, And So I Watch You From Afar performing their new album in it’s entirety for the first time and the madly bonkers idea to have Gallops playing a full band live set at the silent disco. Plus we’re very happy to have Big Scary Monsters and Holy Roar doing a Thursday takeover. I can’t breathe I’m so excited about all this and I can also confirm that we’ll be releasing our Friday & Saturday main stage headliners before long – they are BIG! ATG #6 is going to be the best one yet for sure!”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
