NEWS: First wave of bands named for ArcTanGent 2018!

Progressively establishing itself as the premium annual home for progressive, technical and math-esque artists across the rock and metal world, the organisers of Bristol’s own ArcTanGent Festival have confirmed the first slew of acts to make up the 2018 line-up.

A total of 15 bands have formed the first announcement for this year’s festival, which includes a headline slot from And So I Watch You From Afar, who’ll be performing their 2017 full-length ‘The Endless Shimmering’ in its entirety.

Massachusetts duo Giraffes? Giraffes! will also be making their first European performance and UK exclusive for the year at the festival.

Other sets for this year’s festivities will also be coming from noisy mathcore troupe Rolo Tomassi, British stalwart Jamie Lenman, and heart-tuggers Pianos Become The Teeth to name a few.
