One of the worlds best and most loved underground music festivals ARCTANGENT has this week unveiled almost its entire 2021 band line ups for the event that will take place next year between August the 18th and 21st.
Teaming up with the likes of Audiotree, Kerrang, Riot Act Podcast and Louder (Metal Hammer/Prog Magazine) to announce the bands over the last 4 days, the main stage headliners Opeth and Cult Of Luna (with one final main stage headliner still to be announced) were joined by an array of the finest heavy, out there, interesting, intricate, genius, epic and down right incredible bands currently making music.
Amongst the bands playing include British prog heroes Tesseract, a reformed Maybeshewill, a much anticipated return form the wonderful Oathbreaker, a double full album slot from Rolo Tomassi (who will be playing both ‘Grievances’ and ‘Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It’ in full over two sets), ANOTHER hugely awaited return but this time from US noise kings The Locust and so so so much more.
Festival booker James Scarlett also spoke to the 101 Part Time Jobs podcast about both ARCTANGENT and his other festival, 2000trees, AND went on an Instagram Live chat with Blake Norris from Audiotree (US) to talk all things noisy and brilliant.
From James Scarlett – “I’m so stoked on the line up at ATG. It’s a mix of some of my favourite live bands, from the legends in Opeth and Jaga Jazzist to the brain melting insanity of returning heroes The Locust to some of the best underground heavy bands on the planet as well as Amenra, Rolo Tomassi and Jamie Lenman plus the return of the mighty Oathbreaker for what is likely to be their only show of 2021. Excited isn’t the word! To say the least, 2020 has obviously been a bit of a nightmare for everyone so we really wanted to bring some joy and some guitars to people’s lives. I’m so proud of the line up we’ve put together and can’t wait to see everyone at Fernhill farm in August 2021. See you all then!”
