ArcTanGent’s grand master band booker James reckons: “Once people have been to ATG, they seem to come back every year. It has this amazing sense of community and really feels like we’re all part of a secret club that the rest of the world doesn’t know about. Watching an unknown, but amazing, band play at midday to a thousand people really helps with my faith in humanity! But nothing compares to 5,000 people gathering to watch the headliners - American Football this year will be out of this world and I guarantee that ArcTanGent 2016 will be the best weekend of the summer!”

Director general in charge of good times, Simon Maltas explains there is also a special treat in store for loyal fans: “we really wanted to reward those fans that have been with us from the beginning so the first thousand people to buy a ticket will get £10 in beer tokens to spend at the bar! I’d expect these to go with in the first couple of minutes though so be quick!” Tickets for **ArcTanGent **are on sale now from www.arctangent.co.uk/tickets.
