The deadline to submit a refund request was 5pm on the 12th of May & since the deadline has now passed, unfortunately we’re not taking any more refund requests at this time.  The good news is any 2020 tickets have been automatically rolled over to the 2021 festival. If you bought a ticket to this year’s festival you should be able to find it in your eventbrite account.

If you cannot make the 2021 dates, then we’ll happily roll your tickets over to 2022 (18-21 August).  If neither of these dates work for you, then you are more than welcome to sell your ticket at face value & we will help to change the name on the tickets to facilitate this.

If you still require help then please drop us an email on our tickets@ email and we’ll endeavour to reply as soon as possible.

If you submitted a refund request before the deadline then we will of course reply asap.

Thanks for reading and we look forward to partying with you at ArcTanGent next August.

Your existing ticket for 2020 is now your ticket to 2021. You don’t have to do anything further. We’ll be in touch with more info soon.

Finally we’ll also throw your name into our hat to win 1 of 20 tickets for life or 1 of 50 VIP upgrades. We’ll pick the winners at the end of May and be in touch with all the winners soon after that.

OK summer lovers, it’s finally time to call time on ATG 2020. We tried for as long as possible to stay optimistic, but unfortunately, we have had to take the incredibly tough decision to postpone ArcTanGent until August 19th-21st 2021. 

We’re absolutely devastated that we won’t be able to party with you this August at Fernhill Farm.

The good news is that all tickets will automatically be valid for next year’s event and if you already have your ticket, you do not have to do anything to reserve your place at ArcTanGent 2021. Your existing ticket is now your ticket to 2021.

Please read the whole statement below for more details.

As a small business that’s been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, we really need as many people as possible to roll their tickets to next year, just so we can keep paying our staff and secure the long term survival of ATG.

First off, we just wanted to shed some light on ArcTanGent as a business, and how festival finances in general work, because it may not be immediately obvious to everyone reading.

We (James, Goc and Si) set up ArcTanGent in 2013 to explore our love for parts of the musical landscape that get little support from other festivals. We wanted to deliver you a line up that you wouldn’t find anywhere else on earth, whilst also giving you the chance to let loose and party in a field for 72 hrs.

We hope you agree that we pretty much smash this goal every year, with many people (ourselves included), saying it’s their favourite weekend of the year.

Each August for the last 7 years, come hell or high water, we have put on the festival without ever needing to postpone or cancel.  Alas, these are unprecedented times and the world is suddenly a very different place thanks to Covid-19. 


The decision to postpone wasn’t taken lightly and is sincerely the last thing we wanted to do. We were still hopeful of going ahead until last week. However, it has become increasingly clear that the current situation isn’t going away anytime soon and the health and safety of our guests, staff and the wider community at large has to come first.

Even after 7 years we are still a proudly independent business.  We as a core organiser team do not pay ourselves a salary unless the festival goes ahead and makes a profit.  We are still just 3 music-lovers who want to put on an amazing festival and party with likeminded individuals.


In case you’ve ever wondered, the majority of UK festivals (unless they have big corporate sponsors) are small independent businesses without massive cash reserves. As we said above, festival organisers usually don’t get paid unless the event goes ahead and makes money.  Most of the profits come from the bars and food traders (i.e. not from ticket sales).  If you were curious to know the details, it costs us in the region of a million pounds every year to host ArcTanGent Festival and a big chunk of these costs are paid well in advance of the festival, and thus have to come from ticket income.

What happens at the majority of festivals is that someone buys a ticket to the festival and that money is used straight away to pay a whole host of costs, such as staff payroll, online and press advertising, and supplier deposits etc. The majority of these are “sunk costs” which we can’t get back and what’s worse, our insurance won’t pay out on an event postponement due to Covid-19.


Due to all the above, we’re asking everyone to roll their tickets over to the 2021 festival.

Not only will you get next year’s tickets at this year’s prices, we promise you’re going to get the mother of all comeback parties and the 8th edition of ArcTanGent (19th-21st August 2021) will be the best one yet!

If you are happy to roll your ticket to next year’s event, and come to an amazing festival next August, you will be a hero to the 3 of us and everyone else that loves ATG.

As thanks for rolling your ticket to next year, we’ll throw your name into our hat to win 1 of 20 tickets for life or 1 of 50 VIP upgrades.


Instalment ticket holders must successfully make their final payment in July / August for their tickets to be valid for a roll-over. You don’t need to do anything at this point, we’ll email you separately in July/ August to send you your tickets to 2021.

But if you want to cancel your payments in the meantime and start them up again later in the year that is totally fine. Please contact tickets@arctangent.co.uk if you wish to do this.


If you can’t make next year’s dates we will happily roll your ticket to 2022.

If you can’t make either date, then you can request a full refund below. Please select the relevant link for your ticket type below, follow all the steps and we’ll be in touch shortly.
