You know a festival is destined for a massive year when the press and punters alike are hailing the respective lineup as the greatest ever hosted even before they’ve unveiled their final headliner. With this in mind, ArcTanGent have managed to shift over 75% of tickets even before announcing their Thursday night headliner for the 2019 event.

It's difficult to pinpoint an act who embody the spirit of tasteful left-field experimentation more than Arcane Roots. Whilst at ArcTanGent we sat down with Jack Welch (drums) to chat about Melancholia Hymns, the Landslide EP, and upcoming electronic tour.

As the masses furiously down coffee to subdue those ever-lethal end of festival hangovers, the Frenchmen in Jean Jean (7.5) take to the breezy air to provide the visceral soundtrack to everyone’s hungover extensional crisis.
