It's been one wrangle after another for Glade Festival, but that hasn't encouraged Britain's most mind-mangling (legal) outdoor party to throw in the towel. Thank bejeezus!
Plans may have folded in the run up to 2010's event, and let's not forget the last-minute, panic-stricken switch from Old Warden Park (Bedfordshire) to Houghton Hall (Norfolk) last year, but none of this has prevented The Glade from going all out to deliver the festival bacon once again in 2012.
Laid on sandy equestrian soil immune from the sloppy mud antics of previous sites, last year's burst of rain caused minimal problems, allowing the event's entourage of dedicated mentalists to trance-dance to their hearts content without requiring a raft.
This year, some new treats are in store, including a stage in the forest built into a 30-foot crater Meteor, a stage programmed by us, plus an insane stock of dance talent spread across 14 stages. Glade's got it going on. Just check out the latest additions to the line-up...
