Check out our 2022 interview with Devy:
From Devin Townsend – “Hey all, Dev here. Honoured to be headlining the final night of Arctangent Festival in the UK this August. It’s a cool festival that seems to really be committed to musical diversity. That’s something I can definitely get behind and I look forward to seeing you there :)”
From Arctangent Festival organiser James Scarlett – “We’ve been trying to book Devin Townsend for years, so to finally get him to Bristol to close out what is now officially the biggest Arctangent Festival we’ve ever had is a dream come true. Word to the wise, at this rate ATG will sell out this year so if you want to join us for Converge, Heilung and Devin Townsend, don’t sleep on it – you’ve been warned!”
Along with Devin Townsend, Arctangent Festival can also today announce another host of acts for this summers event including Haken, YOURCODENAMEIS:MILO, Ashenspire, CLT DRP, The Guru Guru as well as many more acts.
