ArcTanGent 2020 Announcement
After a nail biting couple of months the first announcement from ArcTanGent has been made and it is as tasty as it is impressive.
Opeth have laid claim to the Friday headliner slot with singer/guitarist Mikael Åkerfeldt exclaiming “We're excited to play the ArcTanGent festival in Bristol on the 21st of August 2020. It'll be one of the last festivals we play that summer, so we wanna go out with a bang."
Also on the bill are UK prog legends TesseracT, with James Monteith saying "It's a huge honour to be asked back to ATG to play in 2020, probably the most forward thinking rock music festival in the UK. It'll be our only UK festival performance of the year, so we're planning to make it a very special occasion. We have an exciting new production and stage design in the works, and maybe.. just maybe there might be some new music too!"
Additional announcements are from US post-rockers This Will Destroy You and and British band Rolo Tomassi, who will be performing both 'Grievances' and 'Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It' as two full album sets across the weekend.
More intriguing is a special ATG commissioned set featuring a collaboration between Jo Quail and Howard James Kenny entitled Quail vs Kenny.
