++ ARTIST SPOTLIGHT ++

Keelan Mak is one of Brisbane's most promising up and coming electronic artists and the crazy part is.... He's only 20 yrs old!

Combining the blissful intoxicating songwriting style of James Blake and the epic atmospheric production of Tora, Keelan layers his production with warm soulful vocals that call to you like the haze of a midnight dance floor.

His latest single 'Weigh You Down' which dropped only a few days ago has already garnered support from multiple blogs & of course, JJJ! Check it out below..

Stargazer Theme Night

To help keep the good vibes rolling on Day Two we invite you to look to the stars and to celebrate the celestial brilliance above us! Sunday May 6ths festivities will be ‘Stargazer’ theme! Dress up in you finest space attire, be it extra terrestrial, your favourite star sign (you gregarious Leo’s), Star men or women (Bowie fans?), your favourite science fiction characters (anyone celebrating May the 4th?), cosmonauts, star face & body paint, or any other costumes that are simply out of this world!

We will be on the hunt for the best costume with the winner scoring a double pass to the next instalment of Arcadia so get creative! On the flip side if costumes aren't your thing, the theme is not compulsory :)

Jamie Grenenger is one of Brisbane's hardest working DJ's. From playing alongside a host of international acts such as Shlomo, AWB, Yokoo & Trinity AU, to curating events like IWTFA & Soiree, Jamie has done a lot for the local techno scene.

Jamie’s influences stem from his love of progressive house and techno and through these channels, he
organically blends melodic layers heart thumping rolling techno utilising up to 3 CDJs to weave in and out
of tracks to create his own signature sound and style of mixing.

Make sure you catch his epic set at Arcadia 2018!

++ ARTIST SPOTLIGHT ++

Jim Z (aka James Hilan) is amongst the most exciting DJs to come out of Brisbane in recent years.

A fresh, fun and varied approach to mixing, coupled with his passionate respect for the oldskool are both calling cards. Known for highly energetic sets and a serious vinyl addiction, Mr. G once even compared his style to that of the mighty Ben UFO... he is not likely to receive a bigger compliment than that anytime soon. James runs the event series HIGHER STATE and has played for just about every decent party in town, supporting the likes of Fred P, Route 8, Terry Farley, Marcellus Pittman, Smallpeople, Nthng, Tama Sumo, and Ray Kajioka to name a few.

++ ARTIST SPOTLIGHT ++

This next artist is one of the most accomplished acts we’ve ever had the pleasure of booking. His involvement within the underground scene in Brisbane and overseas has helped solidify him as one of Brisbane's premiere local exports.

Fuzion’s journey into music started when he was just fifteen, crafting his skills over various genres & mediums. From 3-deck vinyl assaults to crafting hours of meditative cross-genre excursions into the early hours of the morning. Aside from consistent touring and bookings from the most respected venues around the world, Fuzion also found time to co-direct another Australian premiere boutique festival in Andromeda.

We look forward to hearing Fuzion’s headline set at Arcadia 2018 as we are sure it will be something very special and not soon forgotten. You can check out his label and previous releases below.

This next artist has graced our main stage the last two Arcadia's and we are extremely happy to have him back on board for round 3!

Chris George has gone about carving out his niche in the Brisbane House & Techno scene with a cool head, a steady hand and a Do-It-Yourself work ethic. With over a decade honing his craft, he’s just as comfortable playing to a crowd of festival-goers as he is to a handful of diehards at an underground venue. Check out his music below!

++ ARTIST SPOTLIGHT ++

Future Jr. is the sonic tapestry forged by new Brisbane based artist, Matthew Nainby. Influenced by the likes of Toro y Moi, Lorde and Winston Surfshirt, Nainby began his
alchemy in the depths of his parents' house, with guitar in hand crouched over the glow of his synth collection. Armed with a disarming lyricism and a love for immersive musical
textures, he has bound together a collection of intriguing electro-pop offerings.

Future Jr. just released his ‘Vacancy’ EP which demonstrates his unique talent and sound. We can't wait for his live set at Arcadia 2018 this year!
