Glade Festival Statement

Glade wrote:Firstly, our heartfelt apologies to all you Glader's for the delay in advising you on our plans for this years Glade festival; we hope that you can appreciate that it was imperative that we provide you with the most up to date position rather than put out something hastily!

10 years ago, before boutique was even a word in the festival lexicon, a small group of friends decided to gather all the party tribes under one guise and throw the UKs first truly collaborative electronic festival. But as you know the festival is not centered soley on a gathering of specialists in their genre of music, Glade became
a journey where the emphasis on creativity was welcomed to fuse together all the elements to give an experience second to none in the UK.

Glade continues to challenge the staus quo of the now over saturated festival scene and we are very keen to ensure that it always brings something just that little bit different - it is with this in mind that the powers that be at Glade have decided that we will not be releasing dates for the annual 4-day festival this summer. There will be much needed time spent regrouping and reassessing in preparation to bring you the Glade festival of all festivals in the summer of 2014.

Though this news is somewhat tinged with the sadness of not putting on a full event this year; we feel that any other decision would not have done us or indeed yourselves, our loyal Gladers, justice.

However... we feel it would be a crime to let the summer months pass without celebrating the passing of another winter, not to mention letting you revel in all the smoking hot new music we have accumulated so in true Glade style
there is a stupendous 24 hour event in the pipeline for you guys this summer!

Alongside this we are also teaming up with Project Sound to bring you a Glade LONDON stage every week at the world reknowned Ministry of Sound. This will be an opporunity to showcase a different stage from the festival each week and be a chance to be part of something exciting and new it will bring you an amazing cross-section of the best up and coming electronic music fused with that which you know.

We are all very excited for the next 12 months - we hope you will be too!

Glade.

Well I didnt know about the MOS team-up or the 24 hour party... so some good news in there.

The more I think about the MOS thing, the more it makes sense from both parties.

Ministry have not had a representation at festivals for a number of years now, can't remember the last time they did one of their Knebworth gigs? Presumably they will get some sort of presence at future Glades? They have "improved" their club line-ups over the past few years, certainly less commercial than say 5 years ago..... Also clubs tend to have a quiet spell over the summer months so having glade take up residency in one of their many rooms makes good sense.... fingers crossed for an Overkill showcase! Surely there has never been breakcore at this club before?

And from Glade's perspective it gives them a London stronghold and hopefully a new audience. Keeps the name fresh in peoples minds.... And yes, whilst it is certainly a big (bad?) move in terms of teaming up with a well known brand, if it keeps them alive then its worth a shot?

There's a lot of (ahem) haters on that FB thread though I didnt think SGP were even involved anymore?

Looks like they found a buyer - though im curious as to what you actually buy - as i'm not convinced "The Glade" as a brand only carries too much weight anymore. I wonder if they get the contract with the hall or any suppliers?

Anyway - I think i may give the MoS events a miss..

But, but... surely, in order for Glade to be Glade, there must be something approximating an actual glade.

Last time I looked, E&C was remarkably glade-free.
It's been real.

What has Ministry of Sound got to do with Glade? Trying to resist anything too negative here but MOS and Glade seems like a match made in hell. In other news glade are putting a stage on in Creamfields, Tidy Weekender and Tomorrowland. Next year Skrillex will be performing a headline slot on the new Improved meteor stage.

Let's see what lineup they put out for the 24-hr party and keep and eye out on this room at ministry. I'm really hoping they will keep some of what's left of their integrity. I genuinely think Glade still played an important role in the music scene. Just not sure if their approach will help it survive though another summer where I can think of 2 new huuuge dance festivals. (We are FSTVL and Eastern Electrics) I don't want to go to either of those festivals but will definitely be hitting up some smaller events and Boomtown.

I have to say I thought it was an odd combo too. But any port in a storm, eh?
Top one. Nice one. Get sorted.

it's not any port in a storm, it's over.

SGP have been desperately trying to sell the brand to anyone that would take it. who ever has bought it now plans on doing a Lovebox / Gatecrasher style 1 dayer and then a weekly residency in a backroom at London's worst nightclub.

so long and thanks for all the big fish little fish.
