From festival booker and organiser James Scarlett – “To celebrate our 10th Birthday we wanted to invite back some of our all-time favourite bands from over the years. We drew up a list of all the bands that have ever played ATG that we’d like back and, as it was probably the best thing I’ve ever seen at ATG, naturally Meshuggah was top of that list. Animals As Leaders last played way back in 2016 so they weren’t far behind! We’re stoked to be welcoming both bands back in even bigger fashion than last time, to celebrate 10 years of ATG.”
Taking place near Bristol between the 14th August and the 17th August, the festival has once again been shortlisted for Best Medium Festival at the Festival Awards (it won best small festival in 2018), and continues to bring together some of the most interesting, diverse, exciting and eclectic bills for any festival, anywhere in the world.
