Despite the unfortunate cancellation of this year’s ArcTanGent Festival recently, they’re already starting to set up their 2021 line-up, starting with a headline slot from Opeth.
The Swedish progressive metal maestros were set to headline the 2020 line-up, but sadly due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic this along with many other festivals cannot go ahead.
This is what festival booker James Scarlett had to say about re-securing Opeth for next year’s bill.
“We’re very excited to announce that Opeth will be at ArcTanGent 2021 as our Main Stage Saturday night headliner. They are the biggest band we had booked for 2020 so it felt like a good way to let people know our intentions for next year are equally big, if not bigger! A little bit of inside info is that ATG 2021 will feature loads of the 2020 bands with some amazing extras on top. Watch this space!”
The festival have also launched a crowd funder, where fans can obtain some great products, cash back, name and sponsor a stage of your choosing and even have a film made about your 2021 festival experience in exchange for their donations to support the festival during these difficult times.
Next year’s ArcTanGent Festival will take place on August 19th-21st 2020 at Fernhill Farm, Bristol.
