The first act to be announced for ArcTanGent Festival 2021 is Opeth. The band were due to play this year’s cancelled festival and will be returning to fulfill their headline slot next year.
The festival will take place between August 19-21 at Fernhill Farm, Compton Martin, Bristol.
“We’re very excited to announce that Opeth will be at ArcTanGent 2021 as our Main Stage Saturday night headliner.” says festival booker, James Scarlett, “They are the biggest band we had booked for 2020 so it felt like a good way to let people know our intentions for next year are equally big, if not bigger! A little bit of inside info is that ATG 2021 will feature loads of the 2020 bands with some amazing extras on top. Watch this space!”
The festival has followed suit with the launch of a crowdfunder and some amazing prizes just like sister festival 2000trees.
“Today we’ve launched an ArcTanGent crowd funder with some amazing rewards for our fans and supporters. As people are already aware, due to the COVID-19 pandemic ATG has been postponed until 2021. This means that, as an independent business with no corporate backers, we have a whole year with little to no income. This crowd funder will secure the long term survival of ArcTanGent and help to support thousands of others that depend on ATG each year. If people are able to help out then they will be a hero not just to the three of us who work all year round on the festival, but our whole team and everyone else that loves ArcTanGent.”
All tickets purchased for this year’s festival will be valid for next year and there is nothing you need to do as it will automatically turn into your ticket for the 2021 festival.
