Glade

The raver’s choice, Glade has become the essential annual mash-down for the discerning festival-loving electronic music connoisseur — especially boosted by its move to the Matterley Bowel last year, after years of dire sound level clampdowns in its previous site.

With its thai dyed hippy roots as a woodland clearing stage at Glastonbury, Glade remains decidedly less commercial than dance music festie forefathers like Creamfields, with a line-up that shuns the cheesy superstar DJs for headliners like Tricky, Simian Mobile Disco and Orbital. Most of all, though, Glade is all about debauched, devil-may-care fun. Whether it is the gut-wrenching dubstep and drum & bass bangers that will blast out of the Boomtown tent, the classic techno or future funky of Bloc’s Vapor stage or the wibbly, wobbly high-energy psy-trance basslines that worm out of the outdoor Origin stage, you can be sure that they’ll be met with messy, face-melting grins of appreciation from the notoriously hardcore Glade crowd.
