Glade fresh!

UK's most mind-mangling music fest, Glade, announces first wave of acts...

Few dance music events have had as rocky a road (or should we say muddy?) as Glade Festival. Since starting out as a part of Glastonbury all those moons ago, moving from Berkshire to Winchester in between with the odd bureaucratic wrangle along the way, last year it settled down at its new home, Houghton Hall in Norfolk, for the first time – and there, fingers-crossed, it shall remain.

Hitting the ground running last year after 2010's hiatus with an event of true to Glade form, the first batch of this year's instalment threatens to push things even further between 14th - 17th June. Cocoon boss Papa Sven, dnb titan Andy C and dubstep don Rusko top the bill so far alongside mash-up monoliths to the tune of Vitalic (live), Marc Romboy (live) and Toddla T. Joining them will be the usual psytrance mind-melters in the Psychedelic Village, plus a stock of talent stretching techno, breakbeat and hip-hop that'll keep you trance-dancing until you're hair turns crusty and your brain to mash potato. Poi at the ready, time to get loved up!
