This year's ArcTanGent festival brought together some of the most adventurous, inventive and mind-warping artists for a three-day celebration of all things progressive and underground. From the grandiose post-metal of And So I Watch You From Afar and Pelican to crushing metal of Conjurer and Svalbard to the truly unique offerings from Zeal & Ardor and Myrkur – ArcTanGent is a sanctuary for the specialist and the sublime. 

With stellar performances throughout the weekend, with particular highlights coming from Rolo Tomassi, Alcest and Møl, ArcTanGent was a feast for the eyes as well as the ears. Don't believe us? Take a look at this exclusive gallery below!
