ArcTanGent has added a swathe of new names to its 2020 lineup, including some very welcome returns to the experimental weekender.
Leading the charge in today's announcement are Swans, Metz, Leprous, Wear Your Wounds, Car Bomb and A.A. Williams.
But that's not all, as Oathbreaker will also be playing their first UK show in three years, and The Locust will return for their first British show in seven years.

“It’s been years since The Locust returned to the UK so we are tickled pink to play ArcTanGent!," says The Locust's Bobby Bray. "We’ve known for a while now that the world is fucked but before our species ends itself there are still epiphanies and solace to be had whilst the soundtrack to life on a fucked timeline continues.”
Also announced for ATG are: Maybeshewill, The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, Agent Fresco, Tides From Nebula, Jo Quail, The Samuel Jackson Five, PETBRICK, Herod, Teeth Of The Sea, The Hirsch Effekt, Bent Knee, Astrosaur, tortuganónim, Bolt Ruin, The Hyena Kill, Mutant-Thoughts, Coldbones, Skemer, Natalie Evans, Odradek, Heisa, The Mantis Opera, Last Hyena, Rainbow Slicer, Lack The Low, SEIMS, Elephant Tree, Kokomo, Thumpermonkey, TOTS, Bicurious, God Alone., Land Wars, MIËT, Vogons, Straight Girl, Ogives Big Band and qariaq.
“I’m so ridiculously excited about this announcement that it’s difficult to know where to start!" says ArcTanGent head honcho James Scarlett. "I’m particularly hyped for Oathbreaker, The Locust and Maybeshewill, all of whom I thought might be gone for good. And we’ve also got Converge’s Jacob Banon back at Fernhill Farm with Wear Your Wounds plus the epic awesomeness of a 90 minute Swans Main Stage set will be incredible. I cannot wait! Word to the wise, we’re not increasing our capacity this year so tickets will sell out!”
ArcTanGent takes place at Fernhill Farm, Compton Martin near Bristol on August 20-22. Get your tickets here.
