Festival Spotlight: Intent at Arcadia Spectacular
Fire, flying and beats
Intent returns to the field for summer 2017
It’s that time again and after an absolutely blinding debut last year, there was no better way to kick off phase one of our festival season than with another colossal Junction 2. Already a heavy-weight on the festival roster, Daphni, Adam Beyer, Ben Klock and Maceo Plex were the tip of a five-stage-strong iceberg of a line up.
For those of you who haven’t heard, Junction 2 promoters, London Warehouse Events, have been making big waves on the party scene with the success of not only Junction 2, but also their hotly anticipated, gigantic East London Venue, The Printworks. Having only been open a matter of months, The Printworks has already played host to the likes of Gorillaz and Elrow, with Thundercat, Danny Brown, JME and The Internet on the cards for the global Afropunk festival in July.
Not ones for holding back on the scale of their events, London Warehouse Events partnered with us to transform the empty space hidden beneath the M4 into an industrial underworld to smash the expectations of even the most seasoned ravers.
The Hydra stage was amongst the largest of five dilemma-inducing stages. We pushed skyward with the height and mammoth structure of this one. With a capacity of 2500, towering metal columns suspended a ceiling that soared above the crowd.
Junction 2 wasn’t just about spectacle though, the food, drink and between-act chill were characteristically on point. Intent rigged up over the heads of London’s best food trucks and pop-up bars with a spatter of colourful canopies of various bespoke shapes and sizes spread out over the site. We particularly enjoyed the vibe at the shipping container bar, proving we can fly over anything you can make a bar out of!
The game’s been set pretty high, but we’re ready to see you in the fields for round two. We’ll be rolling out our mega-venue throughout the summer at Lovebox, Wilderness, Wireless, Standon Calling and that’s just for starters! Summer 2017 is shaping up to be one to tell the grandkids about.
