Arcadia have taken off from their former home within the South East corner of the site and landed next to The Other Stage just in time for 2013’s Festival! With mind boggling acrobatics, world class DJs and gigantic laser blasting, flame-throwing sculptures, this show is now out in the open and is one late night Glastonbury experience not to be missed!
The Giant spider will be revving up around midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights* with the jaw dropping “Arcadia Spectacular” show, followed by two solid hours of unadulterated, out-of-this-world, immersive audio-visual experiences to the soundtrack of some of the UK’s finest bass pounding DJs.
As if all the flames, lasers and the 30ft Spider stage weren’t making a big enough impact, Arcadia will also be collaborating with two extra ordinary performance artists; duelling cavaliers, The Lords of Lightning are back with their extraordinary performance that harnesses 4 million volts of raw electricity through the power the mind-bending Tesla suits; as well as the thrilling display of the ultimate in fire manipulation with giant roaring Fire Tornado. There will be further demonstrations of magic of Tesla at the ARC Bar with brand new contraptions including electrically charged sparking speakers and pulsating plasma balls when Tesla meets Techno!
The Arcadia Spectacular show proves to be extremely popular and with all the amazing headliners being drip fed out over the weekend, the excitement will be steadily mounting, so be sure to get there nice and early to grab the best spots situated within the flaming lampposts.
