How was the festival for you all?

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.

How was the festival for you all?

It was High Rankin (Live)


I thought it was! I just didn't realise there was a live band too.

Was that the one near the corner shop with the nice psytrance foresty hippy couple?

No, the big green mess tent, backing onto the forest, facing the Roller Disco and Origin, between a couple other food stalls. They shut down about 4pm Friday, with the staff all looking healthy, but clearly not quite there, and they didn't open up again. Wasn't sure if the tent was supplied by Glade or another stall, but it seemed totally bereft of all cooking equipment when I peeped over the canvas for a look on Saturday afternoon.

Is that the one near Gouranga that was only advertising lots of vulgar shirts? Seemed a bit out of place for Glade really but considering the number of people we saw on Thursday wearing shirts saying "I'm a cunt", maybe they got their target market nailed.

I only saw one person wearing it, and he wore it last year too. And while he may be a cunt, he's quite a likeable one. :D
Top one. Nice one. Get sorted.

Re: bacon butty stall - with the gentrification of festivals - I do wonder who many stalls etc at Glade/SGP etc etc get set up on a whim with people with more money than sense without thinking it through? last year I went for a jacket potato at a stall where everyone looked fresh out of (a very good) school - apart from their boss who looked a year or two older - and they were getting inspected by the local council & looking very stressed - like guilty schoolboys indeed. Its become a different sort of stall holder to your trad festival grizzled hippy/geezah type who've been round the block a few times.

No he didn't.

Most people don't seem surprised he didn't turn up. I don't really like his tunes and prefer high ranking tunes anyway, so it was win for me. I just didn't know what they looked like :)

It was ten minutes each way from Origin if you ran out of water; that's a real PITA when there is running water throughout the site and they can't be bothered to put a single tap in. That was my only real gripe.


As for main meals: the Indian was selling laaaarge plates of curry and rice with a chipati for about £6, very filling very reasonable.

One of the best things about Glade is that if you completely go off on one people just let you get on with it, no "Are you all right ?" though you sometimes get greeted with great big knowing smiles when you rejoin the world. :)
I'm off, Goodbye :)
