ArcTanGent Festival has today announced the first wave of artists for next year’s event, including And So I Watch You From Afar, Three Trapped Tigers, Red Fang.
The four-day festival will be celebrating its tenth year in 2024, and is set to take place near Bristol between August 14 and 17.
Organisers will be in a celebratory mood, with ArcTanGent having been shortlisted for Best Medium Festival at the Festival Awards (it won Best Small Festival in 2018), as it continues to offer an eclectic range of music.
Kick things off on the Wednesday will be headliners And So I Watch You From Afar, the Belfast four-piece who will be playing a fan voted-for set; in fact, they’re one of the most requested repeat bookings for the festival, having played the first-ever ArcTanGent.
Experimental instrumental band Three Trapped Tigers also appeared at that first ATG and will be returning next year, although with mixed emotions as it will be a farewell show.
Red Fang will be making a UK festival exclusive, with other acts including Plini, Bossk, LLNN and more.

ArcTanGent booker James Scarlett has said:
“As it’s the 10 year anniversary of ArcTanGent Festival we’re hell bent on making this year even more special than usual.
“Although we can’t quite hit you with our headliners just yet, we’ve been sitting on too much of an incredible Wednesday line up, and too many special sets from so many of my favourite bands, to not to drop something.
“We’re honoured to also have two once-in-a-lifetime sets from And So I Watch You From Afar and Three Trapped Tigers at ArcTanGent 2024. It’s going to be biblical.”
