For its Australian inauguration, the Arcadia Spectacular festival is pulling out all the stops to ensure the event is on par with the excellence of previous events abroad, today unveiling its full 2016 lineup for this November.
Back in July, we were given the sneakiest of peaks at the lineup, which at that stage was already fairly off its chops. Leftfield were confirmed early in the piece for a headline DJ set, and we now know that UK legends Shy FX have been selected to open the festival.
Mashd N Kutcher have also been confirmed, along with the one-man sonic army Loston. The list goes on to reveal some more gems shining from within the world of electronic music, and you can catch the full roster below.
Of course y’all already know that the boss herself Alison Wonderland will be performing, with Sydney’s own Carmada also previously confirmed. It won’t all just be bangers, though. Arcadia Australia will be eclectic to say the least, also announcing performances from Yallorr Keeninyarra and Arcadia’s The Landing Show + Lords Of Lightning.
On top of that, it isn’t just a massive party either. Arcadia Australia will open its gates to school kids and students to come in and sticky beak at its mind-blowing mechanical spider, which supports a 360-degree stage.
Organisers will also be paying respects to and educating the public about the original custodians of the Elizabeth bay venue, the Wadjuk Nyungar People. The union between the sacred Wadjuk spider of Garrgatup and the Arcadia spider is integral to the event’s ethos.
