Arctangent Festival have just gone and added a bunch of killer bands to this years line-up!
Heading up the announcement are Rhode Island two-piece Lightning Bolt, who are one of the most critically acclaimed and much loved bands in the noise and art rock worlds. Their last album ‘Sonic Citadel’, released on Thrill Jockey back in 2019, is a stunning and raucous clash of post punk, Phillip Glass and Sun Ra soundscapes – a truly incredible band
Joining them are solo artist supreme and former Reuben frontman Jamie Lenman (who last graced ATG stages fronting the now defunct Black Peaks), math rock 3-piece Covet, much loved doom/stoner rock band Bossk from Kent and Nottingham epic 5-piece Palm Reader, whose last album (‘Sleepless’ from 2020) was one of the stand out releases from the last few years. ATG will also see the first ever performance from Skin Failure, the new band featuring Will Gardner and Dave Larkin from Black Peaks.
FULL list of bands and artists being announced for ArcTanGenT Festival today:
Lightning Bolt / Jamie Lenman / Covet / Bossk / Palm Reader / Thank You Scientist / DVNE / Blanket / Zetra / Tuskar / El Moono / Heriot / Ithaca / Skin Failure / Rubbing / Greywave
ATG Festival organiser and head booked, James Scarlett – “This announcement might be considered the icing on the cake, but really it is so much more than that. I’ve been trying to book Lighting Bolt ever since we started ATG, so it feels like a really big booking now it has finally happened. I also think that DVNE are basically the best up and coming band in the UK, so everyone needs to check them out now – For Fans Of Mastodon and Cult of Luna. I can’t wait for August!”
Jamie Lenman – “I love coming to ATG and letting the weirdness out. Every direction you step in, you hear a new sound coming from one of the tents – and rest assured I’ll be bringing some new sounds myself this year. Can’t wait!”
Covet – “It’s super special to be able to come back to play in the UK and we are elated that festivals are a thing again! Props to ArcTangent for bringing a bunch of niche music communities together for one hell of a lineup. Grateful to be a part of it all.”
