ATG Festival organiser James Scarlett – “I’m so ridiculously excited about this announcement that it’s difficult to know where to start! I’m particularly hyped for Oathbreaker, The Locust and Maybeshewill, all of whom I thought might be gone for good. And we’ve also got Converge’s Jacob Banon back at Fernhill Farm with Wear Your Wounds plus the epic awesomeness of a 90 minute Swans Main Stage set will be incredible. I cannot wait! Word to the wise, we’re not increasing our capacity this year so tickets will sell out!”

It’s been years since The Locust returned to the UK so we are tickled pink to play ArcTanGent! We’ve known for a while now that the world is fucked but before our species ends itself there are still epiphanies and solace to be had whilst the soundtrack to life on a fucked timeline continues.” – Bobby Bray, The Locust
