Bone-shaking bass, an ear-piercing speaker system, faultless lighting and production values, extravagant theatre and performance, all topped off with a lick of flame- Arcadia is an unrivalled spectacle of performance, music, construction and production. To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Arcadia and its world-famous ‘spider’, the live events specialist will be hosting a very special two-day event next year.
Set to take place on the first week of May at London’s now-iconic Olympic Park, the Arcadia birthday celebrations are set to host two undisputed heavyweights from the world of electronic music.
Saturday night proceedings will follow a loose script of house and techno, with one of the scene’s most innovative, influential and pioneering household names set to perform on the 5th. Hot off the back of a worldwide tour celebrating their groundbreaking album Leftism, are none other than Leftfield, who’ll be revisiting not just their debut project, but also Rhythm & Stealth, home of course to one of the group’s biggest hits- Phat Planet.
The day after, Andy C’s world-renowned drum and bass label RAM Records will be playing host to your Saturday night at Arcadia, with the imprint celebrating 25 years of dnb. With a roster boasting the aforementioned Andy C, Chase & Status, Calyx & Teebee, Wilkinson, Culture Shock, Rene La Vice and many many more, expect a guaranteed masterclass in drum and bass, jungle and more.
With many more acts and shows to be announced before early May, Arcadia is already shaping up to be one of the summer’s biggest events. Make sure you stay tuned for more updates on this event and more by following us on Twitter or Instagram.
