Interested to hear more on this, Graf. What was not hitting for you (or what were you looking for from him)?

When I've seen him he's been on at a headline/peak time slot and played a very minimal set more suitable for 5/6am in my opinion. One year I gave him a big chance but Leon Vynehall was on in the other room and there was a massive difference in energy. Maybe so disappointed is an exaggeration - but I've always idolised him as a producer. Maybe I just expected something a bit different. Swings and roundabouts though when someone you don't expect to be good is the highlight of the gig/festival.

The centrepiece of the installation will star dazzling lights and weighty sound, with Arcadia’s signature sensory overload of fire, explosions and more adding to the thrilling experience. Specially designed visuals from Astral Projekt and Heckler will also appear on a huge 360 degree radome which was originally used to guard radars in the Cold War.

Yeah he's taken a huge leaf from the DJ Nobu school of trippy, stripped-back, psychedelic grooves. Believe he wants to escape the more vocal side of his early career.

Set up a couple of BRs with him, including a big headline slot at Dekmantel, and the reaction was more mixed than expected. I think he's at his best with a longer runtime.

That being said, if he drops a huge Homework-era Daft Punk tune and something enormous by Plastikman on Arcadia as he often does, everyone's gonna walk away happy.

I'm seeing him tonight in a really small 150 cap venue... It's a 4 hour set so not sure what to expect...  starting quite stripped back building to a full on techno finish?

That's brilliant! Fair play to you. I saw him in 2015 and 2016... Not bad sets, just different expectations.

Very true. I'm intrigued to see what he will play. A lot of people on here seem to love him on here too so maybe it's just me that wasn't getting it. Hopefully this year I'll walk away as happy as everyone else! If not, we're spoilt with talent in all pockets of the festival.

Every new nugget of info on Pangea gives me butterflys and the kind of nervous excitement I haven't felt about anything for years.....possibly ever.

Just had to google...

So, something like this - hanging from the crane.

I'd not been looking into any of the festival threads due to not having a ticket so this is all new to me. This looks incredible. So exciting to see, especially we'll get to be there the first year it's there. Though I must admit I will miss the spider! :( I'm assuming this is a replacement rather than an addition?

No more spider at Glastonbury. They are still using it elsewhere but this new Pangea is Glastonbury specific and will evolve over the next 5 years.

Sorry to hear no ticket dibble reading this thread must be a killer

Fair play on winning the comp.

Must be some buzz finding out your going to Glastonbury after months of thinking you weren’t.

I reckon so. Maybe even a Nine Inch Nails or Marilyn Manson cut dedicated to our fallen PM. He loves doing that.

Report back with how you found it when your head’s strapped back on!

So i'm thinking a space / planetary theme with the crane hanging some sort or planet / sun / star type structure above our heads? Probably completely wrong!

Once he’s finished...

Frankly, I could really do with that intel from Four Tet too!

I'd hope so, just that their FB comments posted here make it sound like there may not be. The pyro is one of the most spectacular parts of glasto. Even the other side of the site you could hear (and see) the spider pyro.

I guess that depends if the new Arcadia will have a DJ booth like the Spider, or a proper stage! Imagine Arcadia having an actual stage.  Holy shit.  

It used to.  They got rid of it from 2013
