ArcTanGent, the award-winning festival just outside of Bristol, has always bagged the kind of line-ups that please the most passionate of rock fans; hardcore, post, alt and everything in-between, their previous headliners have included Deafheaven, The Dillinger Escape Plan, And So I Watch You From Afar and 65daysofstatic.
It comes as no surprise then that for their 2016 edition, they’ve bagged one of the most influential rock bands of recent years – American Football. Stated as their only UK festival appearance, the Illinois outfit nailed their comeback shows last year, making die-hard fans weep with joy.
Joining them are prog-metal favourites Sikth and Japan’s finest, toe. With capacity strictly limited to 5,000, it’s a rare chance to witness these monumental acts in an intimate, festival setting, surrounded by fans just as passionate as you. Taking place from August 18th, to August 20th, tickets are on sale now and you can bag them from the ArcTanGent website.
