ArcTanGent is back for its seventh year, providing a haven for for fans of math-rock, post-rock, post-hardcore and all the weird, noisy spaces in between. This year is arguably the biggest yet, with a brand new stage and headliners including Coheed & Cambria, Battles and Meshuggah.
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.
