ArcTanGent Festival has announced the first headliner for 2019,  Swedish progressive metal pioneers MESHUGGAH.

The band will be one of three headliners & this will be their only UK show of 2019.

Having won The Golden Gods Inspiration Award early this year, the band have an exclusive interview with Metal Hammer.

“Our first festival headline show in the UK is a big deal. It’s something you strive for. We’re bringing the most extreme show of our career!” says the band.

“When I’m booking the line up for ATG I’m looking for bands that are left-field, forward-thinking, challenging, progressive and maybe even a little bit mind-expanding. Meshuggah are all of this and more” Says festival booker James Scarlett. “To have them closing our main stage is truly an honour and I think may well end up being the best ever headline set we’ve had at ArcTanGent.”

The award winning ArcTanGent is the world’s ultimate greenfields music festival for connoisseurs of Math-rock, Post-rock, Noise-rock, Alt-rock and everything in between.  ArcTanGent has built a reputation for itself as an emerging UK rock festival, putting on exclusive performances from exceptional artists and supporting new talent.
