Having won The Golden Gods Inspiration Award early this year, the band have an exclusive interview with Metal Hammer– “Our first festival headline show in the UK is a big deal. It’s something you strive for. We’re bringing the most extreme show of our career!” says the band. Read the full interview in the new issue on news stands 13th September. The 3 day festival, set on Fernhill Farm, runs from 15th-17th August 2019.
“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” Says festival booker James Scarlett. “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.”
ArcTanGent is a fully independent festival that grows organically year on year. Previous headliners include Glassjaw, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Explosion in the Sky, Converge and Shellac.
