Arcadia, founder of the now iconic Arcadia Spectacular experience, has teased its new stage, set for Glastonbury 2019.
The new stage is inspired by the prehistoric supercontinent of the same name, and is meant to mark ‘the dawn of new era,” according to the Glastonbury website. Pangea will feature a 50-metre tall structure built from a decommissioned dock crane, as well as a repurposed radome from the Cold War with art installations inside. It will replace Arcadia’s long-running Spider stage.
“In terms of scale and tonnage, the central crane is Arcadia’s most ambitious engineering project to date,” the press release reads. “The logistics of its installation have been eye watering, while the crane’s monumental beauty and the blank canvas it unlocks in the sky open a thrilling new dimension.”
The lineup for Pangea includes Carl Cox (playing back-to-back with Jamie Jones), The Black Madonna, Four Tet, Bicep, Daniel Avery, Mafalda, Horse Meat Disco and more.
