Arcadia, Queensland’s beloved festival blending visual art and electronica, presents a sonic extension of their program showcasing two stellar acts – Squidgenini and Veople.

A celebration for the senses, audio-visual elements and stunning music and soundscapes will collide creating an immersive musical discovery.

Arcadia, a boutique festival, has fostered a following of fans committed to connected with emerging musical acts presented in settings designed to entrance, delight and stimulate through a variety of experiences.

Squidgeninini is a vocalist, producer and DJ from Brisbane/Meanjin. Her rare song writing ability, versatile production and energetic performance pedigree has placed her as one of Australia’s most exciting emerging acts.

Veople – multidisciplinary artist and musician Jay Jermyn and musician Julian Currie – are an experiential sound and collaboration lingering in the space between tension and release through textural, house-orientated rhythms and electronic production.
