Organisers of this year’s ArcTanGent festival in the UK have revealed the first wave of artists.
It’ll take place at Fernhill Farm, near Bristol, on August 16-18 and 14 artists have been announced today. They are And So I Watch You From Afar, Rolo Tomassi, Giraffes? Giraffes!, Pianos Become Teeth, Alpha Male Tea Party, Jamie Lenman, Foxing, Gallops, Talons, Bossk, Svalbard, Gulfer, Body Hound and Gug.
And So I Watch You From Afar will headline the Thursday night and will play their latest album The Endless Shimmering in full.
Guitarist Rory Friers says: “Every year ArcTanGent makes a home for strange bands like us, our peers around the world and the amazing people who make it such a special scene to be a part of.
“We feel very lucky to be a part of that family, and to be headlining a night is something very special for us.”

Festival promoter James Scarlett adds: “We’ve spent the last few months curating some very special experiences for the ArcTanGent faithful.
“We’ve got Giraffes? Giraffes! playing their first-ever European show, And So I Watch You From Afar performing their new album in its entirety for the first time – and the madly bonkers idea to have Gallops playing a full band live set at the silent disco.
“Plus, we’re very happy to have Big Scary Monsters and Holy Roar doing a Thursday takeover. I can’t breathe I’m so excited about all this and I can also confirm that we’ll be releasing our Friday and Saturday main stage headliners before long!”
