Other acts include:

– God Is An Astronaut

– Heck

– Jambinai

– Listener

– Employed To Serve

– Hark

– Tall Ships

Previous years have seen The Dillinger Escape Plan, And So I Watch You From Afar, MONO and Cult Of Luna perform.

The site also boasts a variety of art and absurdities to keep guests entertained from dawn until dusk.

Guests are invited to pitch a tent and enjoy a weekend of music.

ArcTanGent Festival will be at Fernhill Farm, Compton Martin, from August 17-19.

The stages will be open from 2pm to 11pm on Thursday and from 11am-11pm on Friday and Saturday.
