FESTIVAL PREVIEW: Must-See Bands At ArcTanGent Festival 2019

FESTIVAL PREVIEW: Must-See Bands At ArcTanGent Festival 2019

With its focus on math-rock, post-rock and the weird, noisy spaces in between, ArcTanGent Festival presents a uniquely refreshing atmosphere that you don’t find anywhere else on the annual festival calendar. It’s not only unique for its line-up, but is also the only festival where the crowd can clap perfectly in 7/8 and are just as likely to sing along to a guitar lead line or trumpet riff, than they are lyrics. ArcTanGent 7 promises to be the biggest one yet and it can be daunting to pick your targets, so we’ve given you a headstart with our pick of the bunch this year.

When speaking of clichés, Hot Milk are literally anything but, and it’s an absolute delight to see them both on stage and at interview. Here’s what Hannah and Jim from the band had to say recently at Download Festival. And trust us, you’re going to want to read it all.
