Glastonbury Festival has announced the line-up for Arcadia's Pangea, the new arena from Arcadia, exclusive to Glastonbury and which will evolve over the next 5 years. So it's goodbye to the spider (pictured above).

A giant 50 meter high structure built from an old dock crane sits at Pangea’s heart, repurposed after decades of service at Avonmouth docks and as old as the festival itself. Doing what they do best, Arcadia have bypassed traditional set building to rescue a towering symbol of Somerset’s industrial heritage. Built to last by the pioneering engineering company Stothert and Pitt who were in the Industrial Revolution’s vanguard, the dock crane has a rich history at the crossroads of international trade. Its first life may be over, but the next is just beginning.

Arcadia have always evolved shows and installations organically over time and Pangea is set to be the biggest adventure yet – guided by crowd interaction and a collaborative momentum that harnesses skills and ideas from all walks of life.

In terms of scale and tonnage, the central crane is Arcadia’s most ambitious engineering project to date and the logistics of its installation have been eye watering, while the crane’s monumental beauty and the blank canvas it unlocks in the sky open a thrilling new dimension.

The poster is below. For the line-up so far, plus some rumours, please see the Glastonbury 2019 line-up and rumours page.

Glastonbury Festival 2019 takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset from Wednesday 26th to Sunday 30th June. Tickets have sold out.
