Arctangent festival announce first wave of bands

Arctangent festival has announced its first wave of bands including a first ever European show and UK exclusive from math rock pioneers Giraffe! Giraffe?. 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!”

The main stage will be open on Thursday for the first time ever and headlined by ArcTanGent Festivals most requested band, ‘And So I Watch You From Afar’. The Northern Irish instrumental rock band will be returning to the festival for the fourth time and are playing ‘The Endless Shimmering’ in its entirety.

Other highlights include Jamie Lenman, Pianos Become The Teeth, Foxing, Rolo Tomassi and Bossk. You can check out the full lineup below:
