Truly an immersive experience
The Independent


The core of Arcadia always has and always will be about getting people together to have a good time. As we enter our 10th year we will be continuing to grow the scale and excitement of the events we put on, but also putting more energy than ever into the community and ideas that underpin it.

Read more…Read less…

We are always playing around with alternative ideas such as converting our newest flame system to run on recycled vegetable oil and the Spider herself is built from over 50 tones of recycled military hardware, with the intent of repurposing that technology for positive, unifying ends.

We will have an extensive waste reduction scheme running behind the scenes as well as a recycling system in operation at the event which we really need your help with.

We are also launching the Arcadia Reach CIC this year, a community interest company set up to ensure that we have a lasting positive impact beyond the boundaries of the events themselves. This includes an under 18s day on the Friday, where local kids can come and get inspired through behind the scenes workshops, the development of an advanced well-drilling rig to take to Sierra Leone and the creation of a 6 wheeled amphibious carnival float to jam with local communities throughout the year.

Of course, the core of the community is you lot, and by that we mean us lot, because we started Arcadia as a massive party for us and our mates… and despite that community growing in its thousands around the world, we still get out on the dance floor and consider every single person there with us our friend. For that reason, we consciously scrutinize every commercial decision we face and do our very best to walk a steady sustainable line between scale, integrity and HUGE AMOUNTS OF FUN.

Here's a few snapshots and social media comments from some of you.

Words can't really describe it.
Kate Griffiths
An awesome piece of theatre on an impressive scale. I was truly impressed with how the story evolved and was told and wasn't just using tech for effect.
Sam Davis
It blew my mind and made me feel like a child again, rare to find that awe in adult life!
Perry Grin
Mind-blowingly brilliant! How to inspire and engage so many people of all ages and backgrounds with one show!!
Kim Hoefkens-Lee
The people I took with me were first timers and said they had to go home and think about what they had seen as they just couldn't take it all in.
