Arc Festival

 

Saturday April 27th sees a brand-new outdoor festival land in Bristol's Eastville Park. A collaborative effort from the Applepips and Hypercolour labels, along with award-winning 'digital experience agency' Luma and the technological masterminds behind the Recursive Funcion Immersive Dome (the space-age holographic rave dome that some of you may have encountered at Shambala Festival), Arc Festival "aims to create a visual playground", enlisting the skills of acclaimed audio-visual composer Tarrik Barri, who has worked with Thom Yorke and Flea's experimental outfit Atoms for Peace.

"Arc is about bringing on board the amazing digital artists we always aspired to work with, and continuing to do something totally unique visually, alongside the very finest music the experimental electronic music scene has to offer," said Ben Thomson, RFID director.

"We’ve been touring UK events with the RFID project since 2008 and the queues outside the dome are always insane. We love sharing the joy of total immersion in a 3D environment with festivalgoers and we wanted to take that to another level in a much bigger space."

Alongside the three geodomes (which will very handily weather-proof proceedings), futuristic design and visuals, Arc will also be bringing a mesmerising line-up of music, including a live AV set from Clark, and such tasty names as Martyn, Pinch, James Holden, Nathan Fake, DJ Die, Livity Sound (Live) and Arkist.

Tickets start at £30 – this will be an unmissable beginning to your festival season, and a spectacular showcase of some of the most cutting-edge music and audio-visual art around.
