ArcTanGent have today announced not only a new stage at this years festival with 16 more bands and a special event with BOSS @ Metropolis Studios (London) with Toska and The Physics House Band.
“Surprise, we have a 5th stage! At ATG this year we’ve added a new marquee that will house the ATG merch area, a new bar and, the most exciting bit for me, a brand new stage.” says James Scarlett.
“Musically, it will be a bit different to the other stages at the festival, with the bands ranging from stripped-back-acoustic through to industrial-hip-hop via piano-jazz and lots more! There will hopefully be something for everyone and I think people are going to love it.”
The line up for the new stage is: a-tota-so / Charlie Barnes / Haunt the Woods / Howard James Kenny / Kinlaw + Franco Franco / No Violet / Ogives / Oxygen Thief / Pave / qariaq / Sœur / Steve Strong / Theo / Torsten Jensen / Twin Siblings / VLMV
The festival organisers are asking for suggestions for a name for the new stage over on their Facebook page.
Not only this, but ArcTanGent x BOSS @ Metropolis Studios have come together for a special show. This will take place on the 6th July 2019 and will be open to a handful of fans who can enter HERE to be in with a chance to see Toska and The Physics House Band perform an exclusive set.
