Igniting Radium's glowing core will be turntablist extraordinare, DJ EZ whose breathtaking flair and gravity defying technical genius will be pitted against Arcadia's full arsenal in a brand new closing show.

Joining EZ to pump molten steel through the Spider's circuits are the innovation engine that is Sub Focus who will be joined by ID, the thrilling talents of Dimension, Flava D's cutting edge bassline mayhem, Lady Leshurr's rampaging lyrical freestyle and very special guest Lethal Bizzle tearing up the Arcadia landscape with an uproarious journey through hip hop and grime.

Stoking the flames at the UK's signature bass event are game changers Ed Rush and Optical, original junglists Fabio and Grooverider,  Bristol don Notion teaming up with Bushboy in a UKF exclusive, total meltdown from The Prototypes, and heaving party bangers from Toddla T and Chimpo.

And the day's only getting started.

With headline collaborations still to be revealed and very special guests still to be announced - Arcadia London is already being talked about as one of the world's must attend festivals

The Arcadia London festival supports Arcadia Reach - a non profit organisation whose projects include the development of well drilling technology to improve water access in a remote part of Sierra Leone, collaborating with the local community to create a cycle of sustainable agriculture. Taking inspiration from those collaborations, Arcadia will be inviting artists and musicians from those communities to join the London show, so stay tuned.
