It’s something you strive for. We’re bringing the most extreme show of our career!” says the band. Read the full interview in the new issue on news stands 13th September. The 3 day festival, set on Fernhill Farm, runs from 15th-17th August 2019.
“When I’m booking the line up for ATG I’m looking for bands that are left-field, forward-thinking, challenging, progressive and maybe even a little bit mind-expanding. Meshuggah are all of this and more” says festival booker James Scarlett. “To have them closing our main stage is truly an honour and I think may well end up being the best ever headline set we’ve had at ArcTanGent.”
