A brand new one day festival combining experimental electronic music and digital art will take place in Eastville Park, Bristol on April 17th. Set across two blackout marquees and three geodesic domes, Arc Festival will feature some of the world’s leading audiovisual luminaries alongside a solid mix of Bass, House and Techno artists. The RFID, or Recursive Function Immersive Dome, is an innovative audio/visual entertainment environment featuring 360º dome projection and surround sound.
Arc aims to create a visual playground in Bristol’s Eastville Park, enlisting the support of some of the biggest names in digital art and projection mapping including audiovisual composer Tarrik Barri who collaborates with Atoms for Peace – the experimental supergroup formed in 2009 by Thom York and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers
Integrating sound and visuals is what Arc is all about with bespoke shows being created for all of the headliners including Clark, Skudge, Martyn, Roman Flugel, The Black Dog, James Holden, Livity Sound, Pinch and Will Saul. The futuristic artwork on display will be carefully paired with the next wave of young and experienced experimental electronic musicians.
The futuristic layout of the domes and marquees offers one important practical benefit – weather proofing the festival! With the entire Arc programme taking place undercover festival goers won’t need to worry about April showers.
