After a sun-soaked weekend of magic in 2018, Arcadia are back at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to kick the summer off in formidable style on 4th-5th May 2019 Bank Holiday weekend.

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 alongside the world's greatest electronic music artists.

Arcadia London will be the only event held at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2019 as East London is transformed into a mythological landscape for an accelerating future. As strange creatures converge on Stratford, giant flames erupt across the skyline, lightning bolts crackle through the city, animatronic sculptures glint against the skies and technology's cutting edge is unleashed through the Reactor, Arcadia harness energy in it's most visceral forms to create an unforgettable experience.

The London festival 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 in the capital - from ancient rites of celebration to the newest ideas shaping our future. Last year's collaboration with an Aboriginal nation, the Whadjuk Noongar was a highlight of the event, and as the web grows, so will the extraordinary performances.

Arcadia London 2019 will also see the growth of a Community Day that saw over 200 local children and teenagers attend creative arts and engineering workshops last year - with more workshops, hands on engagement and talks that empower the next generation to shape an unwritten future in an age of radical change.

Fusing a global community ethos, immersive storytelling, thumping dancefloors and the unified spirit of thousands - this is Arcadia London.

Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is unlike any other park you've visited. As a whole new piece of the city, there will always be something exciting going on, from the low-key to the larger than life. Next door to Europe's largest urban shopping and leisure destination, Westfield Stratford City, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has over 35km of pathways and cyclepaths, 6.5km of waterways to enjoy and is home to the UK's most exciting playground. Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park opened to the public on 27th July 2013, exactly one year after the London 2012 Opening Ceremony. It is a new piece of the city with new homes and schools, state of the art venues, beautiful public parklands and a year round programme of events.
