Alternatives to Glade

Glade Festival is Britain's biggest and best non-corporate electronic dance music festival, with a proper havin' it vibe. Now based at a stately home in Norfolk.

There is no alternative to glade. All forms of electronic music were represented.... None of the others come even close!

I quite like Femi Kuti so was very surprised - and pleased - when he was unexpectedly booked for the Glade. I have no recall of the Irration Steppas ever playing though - gutted i missed them - when did they play?

They played at least twice. I remember them playing 2007 cos half way through the set I realised I had buried myself in mud due to stepping!
They also played in 2008 cos we managed to blag some free tickets from the man himself!
He's playing boomtown so gonna see if we can get some more freebies!
Looking forward to The Wurzles and Toots at Boomtown!

Re: Glade replacement

*edit*
Obviously not a replacement for Glade. I don't think anything could replace Glade. But some things must be able to come close in their respective genres....


Mmm festival line ups that avoid bass music? time to party on with a bunch of straight laced C2s methinks, that's the target market.

did you really just use the market research industry's socio-economic grading structure to class people who listen to techno as a C2? :D

you're right, Eastern Electrics are clearly very narrow-minded.
lets go get sushi, and not pay!

I'm just being cynical, I've seen a few too many comments from people who you could pigeon hole into that social group where they moan about sharing events with chavy DnB fans who are "edgy" or who give "attitude" and the Xstatic Festival was set up as a no bass music festival for those lovely lovely people.

It's worth keeping this place open for conversations like this alone. :haha:
Top one. Nice one. Get sorted.
