ArcTanGent Launch Free Online Festival, ATG TV
In the unfortunate absence of an actual festival next weekend, ArcTanGent have announced details of a three-day virtual event: ATG TV.
Organisers have lined up “exclusive content, live music and interviews” for ATG TV, which takes place from Thursday, August 20 to Saturday, August 22.
“You’ll be able to catch performances from a wide range of artists that were due to perform at ATG 2020, along with some of our past ATG favourites, all on the ArcTanGent Festival Facebook and Instagram pages,” they explain.
“On the Thursday afternoon/evening (3:45pm – 9pm) we’ll have exclusive live performances from Phoxjaw, Sugar Horse, Pijn and more streaming on the ArcTanGent Facebook page. These performances will be genuinely live streamed shows, performed on the day and at the time of viewing!
“The Friday of ATG TV will see a huge exclusive takeover from Pelagic Records, our favourite label discovery of the last year who release music by some brilliant artists (including The Ocean).
“On the Saturday we’ll be bringing you a takeover from the legendary Holy Roar Records with artists such as Car Bomb, SLOW CRUSH and MØL amongst others, with performances, brand new song premieres and shedloads of other exciting ATG favourites all weekend long.”
