Carl Cox, The Black Madonna, Four Tet and more will play at the new stage, which replaces the Spider.
The new stage is inspired by the prehistoric supercontinent of the same name, and is meant to mark 'the dawn of new era," according to the Glastonbury website. Pangea will feature a 50-metre tall structure built from a decommissioned dock crane, as well as a repurposed radome from the Cold War with art installations inside. It will replace Arcadia's long-running Spider stage.
"In terms of scale and tonnage, the central crane is Arcadia’s most ambitious engineering project to date," says the press release. "The logistics of its installation have been eye watering, while the crane’s monumental beauty and the blank canvas it unlocks in the sky open a thrilling new dimension."
The lineup for Pangea was also announced today, and it includes heavy-hitters like Carl Cox (playing back-to-back with Jamie Jones), The Black Madonna, Four Tet, Bicep, Daniel Avery, Mafalda, Horse Meat Disco and more.
The rest of the festival includes appearances from Kylie Minogue, Janet Jackson, The Chemical Brothers, Hot Chip and plenty more. Block9 also recently announced a new stage called IICON.
