Arcadia London 2019 – Heart Of The Global Web

Bank Holiday Weekend – 04/05 May 2019

12:00 – 22:30 (Last entry 18:00)

After a sun soaked weekend of magic in 2018, Arcadia are back in London to kick the summer off in epic style next May Day Bank Holiday.

Racking up 4 award nominations, Arcadia London is a uniquely immersive festival where monumental performance, spellbinding spectacle and high octane dancefloors bring tens of thousands from all walks of life together on a giant wave of celebration

London will see the iconic Spider’s only UK stop, the only UK performance of the evolving Metamorphosis show, a brand new incarnation of The Reactor – Arcadia’s 360 degree immersive indoor experience, the 6 wheeled amphibious Bug rolling out the carnival spirit, new sculptures, new installations and a fresh wave of ground breaking performance.

London is the heart of a web that takes Arcadia to far flung places around the world – and they will be collaborating with the cultures they meet on inspirational rituals, songs and spectaculars to create new experiences at the London festival – from ancient rites of celebration to the newest ideas shaping our future.

With strange creatures on the loose around the world converging on London, the creative pipeline in full flow and feedback on event questions like bar systems being actioned, the web is spreading like wildfire throughout the capital.
