Already a hot spot for experimental electronic music and digital art, Bristol will play host to a brand new one-day festival combining both on April 29th at Eastville Park. Arc Festival will feature some of the world’s leading audiovisual luminaries alongside a solid mix of Bass, House and Techno artists.

Pitched as a “fully immersive experience”, the event is a unique collaboration between the RFID production team, award-winning digital experience agency Luma and the Hypercolour and Applepips record labels. The futuristic layout of the site 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.

With a lineup curated by Hypercolour’s Jamie Russell, the futuristic artwork on display will be carefully paired with the next wave of young and experienced experimental electronic musicians, playing AV sets, live and original material wherever possible.

“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.

The RFID, or Recursive Function Immersive Dome, is an innovative audio/visual entertainment environment featuring 360º dome projection and surround sound. Already well established on the festival circuit, the team behind the RFID are aiming to take the art form to a new level.

“Arc will be a great addition to the one day festival scene in Bristol,” said Ben Thomson. “What we’ve put together is totally unique and at the cutting edge of audio/visual integration. We’ve been really influenced by the one day festivals we’ve visited around Europe, where thousands of people come out to rave during the day! We think Bristol is the perfect home for an event like Arc.”

The line-up includes headline performances from Clark (Live AV), The Black Dog (Live), James Holden, Martyn, Skudge (Live), Livity Sound (Live), Will Saul Presents Close (Live), Roman Flugel, Nathan Fake, Pinch, DJ Die, Tarik Barri, Also (Appleblim & Al Tourettes), Marco Bernardi (Live), Tom Demac (Live), Discreet Unit, Bass Clef (Live), Arkist & Komon, Cheeba (Live AV) and many, many more.
