Explosions In The Sky and Converge are the first two massive names announced for this year's ArcTanGent Festival. What's more, both bands are UK exclusives. So yeah, big deal.
Taking place from August 17th-19th on Fernhill Farm (just 10 miles outside of Bristol) ArcTanGent has been recognised for its excellent lineups over the years, but has certainly flown somewhat under the radar as far as heavy music festivals are concerned. Jacob Banon of Converge certainly gave the festival high praise: "It's a great honour for Converge to be performing at this year's Arctangent Festival. Every year to date the lineup has been relevant and diverse, two great qualities that we like to see in festivals."
