Arcadia have revealed details of a brand new, 360 degree, immersive dancefloor experience called The Reactor

Set to launch at Arcadia’s 10th Anniversary festival at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this May Day Bank Holiday, The Reactor is an experimental sensory laboratory that sees Arcadia explore the possibilities of a large scale indoor space.

A mind bending vortex where cutting edge physics, high octane energy and slamming basslines collide, the Reactor is set to be the most intense daytime dancefloor London has ever seen.

Dark from lunchtime as the iconic 50 tonne Spider lays down the outdoor sunshine grooves, the Reactor features a hugely ambitious new laser installation that transforms the hexagonal arena into an all engulfing geometric matrix. With performers flying overhead morphing the 3 dimensional forcefield, new patterns and symbols forming in the strobes, and a thunderous intensity pumping from every angle, it is set to be a test bed for a whole new chapter of Arcadia’s creative evolution.

With so much of Arcadia’s ethos being rooted in the use of recycled materials and the embedded energy within them, the 360 degree DJ chamber at the Reactor’s core is built from parts that have shape-shifted on the road from New Zealand to Burning Man.

Arcadia founders Pip Rush and Bert Cole said “It’ll be like stepping through a portal and into another dimension. We’ve always wanted to take the ideas that don’t translate outdoors and really push them in an indoor setting. The Reactor concept is about creating a crucible where sound, light, performance, geometry and the energy of thousands interact in an immersive space – and seeing where that can go.”
