New stretch target

We’re so excited for ATG 2021 and we’ve been thinking of ways to make your festival even better.

People are often very surprised to hear that it costs around a million pounds every year to host ArcTanGent, and a big chunk of these costs are paid far in advance of the festival. The larger the financial support we have, the more secure our future and the longer we can continue to bring you the award-winning festival with a line up you won't find anywhere else.

So, we've just put a stretch target on the crowdfunder of £90,000 so we can deliver all the improvements you guys have fed back to us over the last few years. If we can hit this new target in the next 4 weeks then we promise to deliver the following (& more):

  • Onsite showers for everyone.
  • 33% bigger Main Stage Tent so no-one's left out in the elements
  • A brand new VIP bar with open fires to keep you toasty into the early hours.
  • PLUS most exciting of all, if we hit the £90,000 target we're in with a great chance of booking the "one band "we've always said we wanted to book!!! You probaby know who we're talking about... Could 2021 be THE year they make an appearance???

    Not only will we do all of the above, but the extra money will also help make our future properly secure for the long term. You still want to be coming to ATG in 10 years time right?

Please note that these are all or nothing promises so we need to get the full £90k to be able to make all of these things happen. Please share with everyone you know and try to get everyone on board to support the ATG cause.


SUPPORT ARCTANGENT

Over the last 7 years we’ve built one of the best independent festivals in the UK, with a line up that you won't find anywhere else on Earth. But sadly, this year, we’ve had to postpone due to COVID-19…..

However, we're determined to bring you the mother of all comeback parties next year and we want to make sure that the 8th edition of ArcTanGent (19th-21st August 2021) is the best one yet!

But we do need your support to make this a reality...

As part of this crowdfunder, we've got some amazing rewards on offer and at each donation level we'll give you the option of choosing either:

1. The specific reward for that level OR

2. +50% Cashback on your donation to spend on tickets, beer or merch. For example, if you give £100 you will get £150  in vouchers back!

So please do us a favour and #SupportATG and we'll make sure ATG 2021 will be all kinds of amazing!

WHY ARE WE CROWDFUNDING?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic ArcTanGent has been postponed until 2021. This means that, as an independent business with no corporate backers, we have a whole year with little to no income. This crowd funder will quite simply secure the long term survival of ArcTanGent.

If you are able to help out then you will be a hero, not just to the three of us who work all year round on the festival, but our whole team and everyone else that loves ArcTanGent. 

For more information please read the “A BIT MORE ABOUT ARCTANGENT” section below.

Thanks in advance!

WHAT ARE WE OFFERING

We're lucky enough to have some amazingly loyal fans and we need your help now more than ever.  

To show our appreciation - we want to offer up a whole host of exciting rewards to anyone that helps ArcTanGent survive, no matter what size of donation they can afford. These rewards range from limited edition ATG collectible merchandise & exclusive experiences to cash back credit on tickets, beer or merch.

Merch:
Snag one of our new, exclusive & limited edition 2020 T-shirts, Hoodies or Posters. Keep your ATG collection going and support the festival at the same time.

Experiences:
Do you want to know what makes a festival tick? Well now you can find out by taking one of our festival masterclasses with organiser & band booker James Scarlett.

Cashback credit:
We think one of the most exciting ways to offer rewards is through money back on everything you donate. So everyone that donates can choose a 50% return on their "investment". For example, if you give £100 you will get £150 cashback in vouchers.

The cashback credit rewards will be in the form of a voucher, which you can spend on: 

  • Tickets to either the 2021 or 2022 festival.
  • Bar credit which can be spent on site at ArcTanGent 2021.
  • Merch credit redeemable from our online shop.

You can also split your cashback between any combination of tickets, bar and merch.

The money raised will go to ensure we can keep the ATG dream alive, keep us independent and continue to curate the best festival line up imaginable. 

Thanks for reading and we look forward to partying with you in a field next year.

Love and (virtual) hugs from all at ArcTanGent xxx

A BIT MORE ABOUT ARCTANGENT

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. 

Even after 7 years we are still a proudly independent business. We are still just 3 music fans who want to put on an amazing festival and party with 8,000 like-minded individuals.

Over the years, ATG has grown to be an incredibly strong community, which we often refer to as our festival family, and we are lucky enough to see the same faces returning to work hard & party hard with us each and every August. This means that the survival of ATG is important, not just for the 3 of us and our loyal audience, but also for the hundreds (probably thousands) of people that depend on the festival for income every year. This includes the 100+ bands, the sound & stage crew, the food traders, the toilet & waste teams, the farmers at Fernhill Farm, our press team and last but not least our legendary set up crew. We’ve missed a lot of people out here but hopefully you get the idea. All of these people and many more need ArcTanGent around, not just for this year, but for the long term.

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. Most of the (relatively modest) profits come from the bars and food traders (i.e. not from ticket sales). People are often very surprised to hear that it costs approximately a million pounds every year to host ArcTanGent Festival and a big chunk of these costs are paid well in advance of the festival. A lot of the ticket income is used straight away to pay a whole host of costs, such as staff payroll, online & 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.

As we said above, if you are able to help out then you will be a hero not just to the three of us who work all year round on the festival, but our whole team and everyone else that loves ATG.

Thanks again from all of us at ATG xxx
