What year was your favourite 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.

2007 for me, despite all the mud.

When Squarepusher finished off with Journey to Reedham, it was immense and easily my favourite moment from any festival that I've been to.

And the first 40 minutes of his set where he DJ'd balls to the wall techno and old school, scratch mixes and droppin tracks in, fuckin smashed it... then dropped out to a locked groove, stood back... and picked his bass guitar up.... awesome!

This is the only clip I can find of it so far...

Which was the year of Glade that was the final weekend before they closed the Magic Mushrooms loophole? 2005 or 2006? THAT was my favourite, closely followed by 2008 (only because about 30 of us went)

All the down sides to do with volume etc (seeing Frequency 7 and having to give up because it was so absurdly quiet) are basically forgotten now.

2007 was fun, but after Glastonbury being rained out that year too, that was HARD work!

I loved 2006 as my fav, then last year's 2012 as my second fav. I think all the othersall had issues that made them slightly less amazing..but amazing none the less.

2005 for me i reckon! I'll never forget discovering the idspiral area on the thursday night and feeling the hairs on the back of my neck stand up due to the sheer magic of it! And then of course origin completely blew me away - the sunshine, the music, the people, just incredible! A wonderful sense of something really special, and the venue was gorgeous! 2006 was pretty amazing too, and i agree that the mudbath year was great too - system7 belting out their incredible music with dark evil storm clouds dropping tons of rain on the site was great!! Although the new venue for 2011 and 2012 was good, it was quite flat in comparison, and the vibe was limited to just a few little bits here and there.....i saw too many monged out people and not enough magical people! So, 2005 was probably the best and i will remember it forever as being pure magic........and for that i can only thank glade! Who knows what new festivals might emerge in the future? :)
