Arcadia London announces The Reactor



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

Set to launch at their 10th Anniversary festival at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park this May Day Bank Holiday across 5th & 6th May featuring Sven Väth, Eats Everything, Groove Armada, Max Cooper, Paul Woolford, Dusky, Boys Noize, Rudimental, Noisia, The trio of Royal-T, DJ Q and Flava D aka TQD, Ram Records and many more.

The Reactor is an experimental sensory laboratory, which is pitch black from lunchtime, 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.


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.”

Tickets are on sale now via Ticket Tannoy.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
