Meshuggah announced as headliners for ArcTanGent Festival 2019
Some things are just meant to be, like Meshuggah headlining the incredible ArcTanGent, a festival in Bristol dedicated to the best music from the world of math rock, post rock and noise rock. A long time coming, the Swedish legends of knövelmetal will be headlining the Saturday of the event, in what will be their only UK show of 2019 and one that will be a part of a string of dates the band will be doing next year before they hit the studio to record the follow-up to 2016s The Violent Sleep of Reason.
James Scarlett, ArcTanGent ‘s band booker, comments, “When I’m booking the line up for ATG I’m looking for bands that are left-field, forward-thinking, challenging, progressive and maybe even a little bit mind-expanding. Meshuggah are all of this and more. To have such a legendary band closing our main stage on the Saturday night is truly an honour and I think may well end up being the best headline set we’ve ever had at ArcTanGent”. Many more names will be announced soon for ArcTanGent, but with such a big headliner already confirmed, all we have to say is that this will certainly be a can’t miss event.
ArcTanGent Festival 2019 takes place in Bristol, UK, on August 15-17th. Two-day and three-day tickets are available for 99 and 115 pounds, respectively. Daily tickets are available for 60 pounds and there is a special VIP ticket available for 185 pounds. All of them can be purchased online via the festival’s website, here.
