The Arcadia spider makes its return to the festival for the first time since 2018, with both the 2020 (due to be headlined by McCartney, Lamar and Taylor Swift) and 2021 festivals both cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In 2019, Arcadia replaced their iconic spider with new sculpture Pangea. Speaking about what to look forward to in 2019, Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis said: “I would say the new structure for Arcadia. It’s called Pangea, and it’s an enormous crane that you can see from pretty much the entire site.”
The spider will be back at the Worthy Farm festival from June 22-26, with Billie Eilish, Paul McCartney and Kendrick Lamar set to headline the Pyramid Stage.
