Arcadia has announced details of a brand-new installation, Pangea, making its debut at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, taking place June 26th-30th. Pangea features a giant 50 meter mega crane at its core in Arcadia’s most ambitious engineering project to date.
The new installation is exclusive to Glastonbury and will evolve over the next five years.
The line-up includes Carl Cox and Jamie Jones B2B, Fatboy Slim and Eats Everything’s new live concept Fat Boy Eats Everything, Four Tet and Andy C.
A primordial world of possibility, Arcadia’s Pangea takes inspiration from the prehistoric supercontinent where every land on earth was one and the future was yet to be written.
A giant 50-meter high structure sits at Pangea’s heart, repurposed after decades of service at Avonmouth docks and as old as the festival itself. Arcadia have bypassed traditional set building to rescue a towering symbol of Somerset’s industrial heritage.
With a line-up befitting a supercontinent, Pangea’ sonic pulse features a host of sets as Carl Cox takes to the controls with Jamie Jones, Fatboy Slim teams up with Eats Everything on their new live concept, Fat Boy Eats Everything, Andy C + Tonn Piper unleash rivers of molten bass and Four Tet channels Pangea’s bio-rhythms into an ethereal wonderland.
Stepping into the tectonic forge alongside them are Charlotte de Witte, The Black Madonna, Sub Focus and ID, Bicep, Mefjus B2B Kasra B2B Inside Info + Jakes, Daniel Avery, Dimension, DJ Vadim ft Kiko Bun, Craig Charles, Horse Meat Disco, Stickybuds, PBR Streetgang, DJ sets from Ishmael Ensemble and Afriquoi, Mafalda, Dutchie ft Syntax, Decoy and Seapa (MC Grindah) and Cousn.
A giant repurposed 360 degree radome- used to protect radar equipment during the Cold War – will feature bespoke visual art from Astral Projekt and Heckler following their recent Artificial Intelligence installation at Burning Man, while Arcadia’s iconic Bug roams the Pangea landscape, spreading its wings every sunset to get the party started in a blaze of vibrant colour, roots and soul.
