Glastonbury to London :: Arcadia Celebrates 10th Anniversary


One of Glastonbury’s most famous stages Arcadia have announced their biggest stand-alone event yet – taking place in London in 2018 to celebrate their 10th anniversary.

The two-day event – being held on the first bank holiday weekend in May on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th – will see the iconic 50-tonne, fire-breathing spider land in the heart of London as dance music heavyweights perform from the belly of the beast.

Having toured the Spider on four continents, Arcadia are back in spectacular style. Teaming up with London event specialists LWE, Arcadia’s first ever London show is primed to set the capital ablaze with fire-breathing drama and vivid multi-sensory moments.

Londoners will have the chance to step inside Arcadia’s fully immersive landscape, where 50-foot fireballs ignite with a thunderous shockwave, huge mechanical limbs spray jets of C02, and a ground-breaking light show brings the arena to life.

Built from repurposed military hardware, the iconic Spider was forged in an ethos of transformation, where materials once used for destructive ends were recast into spectacular arenas that unite tens of thousands of people from all walks of life.

Further details about the May show are coming soon, with musical headliners to be announced later this month.
