Glastonbury’s favourite Spider won’t be returning to Worthy Farm in 2019…

Organisers of Glastonbury’s iconic Arcadia Spider have now confirmed that their anticipated ‘Metamorphosis’ show will be returning to London on 4/5th May Bank Holiday Weekend. This following the 50-tonne spider’s first ever visit to the capital back in May, where Arcadia celebrated its 10th-anniversary.

Revealing the news on social media earlier today (November 15th), the announcement reads that the London appearance will be the “ONLY UK SPIDER AND METAMORPHOSIS SHOW IN 2019” – In other words, there will be no Spider at next year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Confused Glasto-goers took to Arcadia’s Facebook page in hopes of finding some answers (or allaying their fears), and after reading through some replies by the Arcadia officials we now know that – Arcadia will be at Glastonbury next year, with no Spider “or Meta or the Reactor or the Bug” – they will be “kicking off something different just for Glastonbury that will then evolve over the coming years”.

Earlier in the year, Glastonbury curator Emily Eavis teased that a brand new Arcadia show is being worked on, and will be set for when Glastonbury returns in 2019. We had always assumed that the massive fire-breathing spider would remain a staple at Worthy Farm, so it will be exciting to see what takes its place!
