Dozens more artists have been added to this year’s ArcTanGent bill.

Tesseract, Sikth and Explosions In The Sky had previously been announced for the UK festival, which will take place in Bristol, UK, on August 17-19.

They’ll now be joined by 38 other artists including God Is An Astronaut, Boris, Defeater and Future Horizons.

Find a full list of artists so far confirmed below.

Festival booker James Scarlett says: “The 38 bands we’re announcing today are making me very excited. It’s a great mix of scene legends like Boris and God Is An Astronaut, alongside unbelievable newcomers such as Brutus and OHHMS.

“It’s by far the strongest line up we’ve ever had and tickets are selling at twice the speed of last year. A word to the wise, Tier 2 tickets will definitely sell out in the next week!”

ArcTanGent is described as the “ultimate music festival for connoisseurs of math-rock, post-rock, noise-rock, alt-rock and everything in between” and has seen bands including Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Russian Circles, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Deafheaven, Mono and 65daysofstatic perform in previous years.

Tickets for ArcTanGent 2017 are now on sale. More than 70 bands will play over four stages, while other entertainment will also be provided, including a silent disco.
