Arcadia will setup in a new Glastonbury location, away from their traditional 'late night' South-East corner, as they set up residence in The Other Stage field. The external Arcadia sculptures and installations will be scaled back but the breathtaking show is due to be bigger and badder than ever and will help kick start the festival proceedings on Thursday night, starting from 9.30pm on Thursday June 27.

The only other place to catch the full Arcadia Spectacular show for summer 2013 will be at BoomTown Fair, which takes place at The Matterley Estate, Hampshire from 8 – 11 August 2013.

Aside from the ‘Spectacular’ shows, Arcadia will be popping up at a select handful of UK festivals with their mix of mutated vehicles, after burner DJ Stages, installations and site art, as well as creating more incredible scrap metal masterpieces around the globe - all still to be announced.

The Glastonbury Festival rumour mill is in full swing and has already thrown up a handful of names, including The Rolling Stones, Rihanna and Prince.

The Arctic Monkeys are the only act that look likely at this point to headline the event, which takes place at Worthy Farm, Somerset from June 26-30 2013.

Alt-J are amongst a handful of acts who have confirmed themselves for the Glastonbury Festival line-up, which is due to be announced in full in early April.

All tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2013, estimated to be approximately 140,000 in number, sold out after one hour and 40 minutes last year. A resale date has been confirmed for Sunday 21 April, when a limited number of cancelled tickets will go back on sale.
