The bill for this year’s ArcTanGent festival is complete with the addition of Ho99o9 and Shitwife, organisers have confirmed.
And they’ve also revealed day splits for the event in Bristol on the weekend of August 17-19, starring TesseracT, Converge, Explosions In The Sky and many others. A clash finder, which helps make sure fans don’t miss their favourite musicians, is live on the event website.
This year’s festival will be the first to feature an acoustic stage, with acts including Her Name Is Calia, Steve Strong and IORA appearing between 11pm and 2am each night.
Booker James Scarlett says: “Ho99o9 and Shitwife are genuinely two of the most mind-blowing live bands I’ve seen this year. Ho99o9 in particular are just something else – they were on the last The Dillinger Escape Plan tour, and more than held their own, which is obviously not an easy task.
“We’re very excited to announce some acoustic sets at ATG. It’ll be a nice alternative to the silent disco. Don’t worry, it won’t be a load of Ed Sheeran and Phil Collins covers either – think acoustic-math-rock and you’re closer to what we’re going for!”
Tickets are on sale now via the festival website, with a £20 reservation option, and a discount available for those who subscribe to the event newsletter.
