Adding to a line up that already includes main stage headliner Opeth, Swans, Metz exclusive UK festival performances from The Locust, Tesseract, Oathbreaker and Maybeshewill, the outside Bristol based, award winning ArcTanGent Festival (ATG) can today announce a very exciting further collection of bands and artists for this years event, including their 2nd man stage headliner.
The incredible, unmistakable talent that is Chelsea Wolfe will be the ArcTanGent Thursday main stage headliner. Having released her most recent, stunning 6th album ‘Birth Of Violence’ in September 2019 through Sargent House, the American singer song writer fuses folk, goth, metal and doom to create her own unique blend and sound. This will be the first ever ATG appearance for Chelsea Wolfe and it will no doubt be on of the most watched sets in ATG history.
Joining Chelsea Wolfe include hugely loved US post rock band Caspian, who have JUST released their brilliant new album ‘On Circles’ through Triple Crown Records, their first album to ever feature vocals on tracks. Returning to ATG is much adored US singer songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle, who as well as releasing a string of very well received solo albums is also a current member in both Red Sparrowes and Marriages. alongside genre bending, complex LA metal band Intronaut,
