In 2024, the mighty ARCTANGENT FESTIVAL will be celebrating its TENTH year, and today can reveal its first wave of bands for the event next summer, August 2024. Taking place near Bristol between the 14th August and the 17th August, ARCTANGENT FESTIVAL has once again been shortlisted for Best Medium Festival at the Festival Awards (it won best small festival in 2018), and continues to bring together some of the most interesting, diverse, exciting and eclectic bills for any festival, anywhere in the world.
To kick things off we have Wednesdays headliner, the magnificent Belfast 4 piece And So I Watch You From Afar, who will be playing a very special, fan voted for set. The band (who incidentally also played the very first ever ARCTANGENT FESTIVAL), are a festival fan favourite, and one of the most requested repeat booking the festival has ever had. More details on how this will work to be announced soon but only 4-Day Ticket holders will be able to vote, so if you want to have your say on a historical one-of-a-kind set, then don’t wait around to grab your tickets.
Joining them include a farewell show from the fabulous (and soon to be much missed) experimental instrumental Three Trapped Tigers, who also played the first ever ATG, US monster moshers Red Fang (with a UK festival exclusive) and the exceptional Australian guitarist, Plini. Also announced includes the much loved UK stoner rock doom band Bossk, dark and heavy Danish band LLNN, Californian rock band Night Verses and Dutch progressive metal from Textures (in a UK exclusive show booking).

From Arctangent booker, James Scarlett - "As it’s the 10 year anniversary of ArcTanGent Festival we’re hell bent on making this year even more special than usual. Although we can’t quite hit you with our headliners just yet, we’ve been sitting on too much of an incredible Wednesday line up, and too many special sets from so many of my favourite bands, to not to drop something. We’re honoured to also have two once-in-a-lifetime sets from And So I Watch You From Afar and Three Trapped Tigers at ArcTanGent 2024. It’s going to be biblical."
