Arcadia have a new home this year in Home Ground, by The Park and a new start time well before sunset.

This year also sees a wave of new additions to the landscape with Glastonbury's own Mechanical Playground, which comes to life at 17:00 each day. Featuring the Hand of Man - a 26-foot long mechanical hand and forearm built by Christian Ristow, which is capable of picking up cars, crushing them, and slapping down the Spider if he gets unruly. Operated by a cyborg style glove, it’s completely interactive and open to the public to have a crack at controlling it.

Also on display will be Paka and his robotic dragon which breathes fire. Spitfire Forge rock up with caged pulse jets that blur the lines between sculpture and synthesisier. Itchy Gorilla rreturn with their Fire Tornado, and the Bug Stage (built from submarine moulds) is going to taks the party mobile on 6 wheels of all terrain rave.

There will also be an installation dedicated to the charity ‘Alive and Well’ – a cause close to the crew.  Attempts to go ‘organic’ by capturing the methane output of Michael’s cows are still in the developmental stage, but the biogas flame cannon is well on its way.
