Ravetalk can confirm that the new Glade Festival venue is at Matterley Bowl, Winchester. Rumours had been posted on several web forums including ours last Friday – but we could not officially confirm it until the deal was finalised, which has now happened.
As you can see, the venue is very… ummm…. bowl-shaped. But we have been reassured that the site has good drainage, even in the unlikely event that the biblical-style flooding of 2007 is repeated.
And music fans will be delighted to know that “the bowl nature means loud after midnight!” 🙂
The organisers also say that they are developing a “village” concept for the stages and there will be a number of “festivals within festivals”. More news in the forum announcement.
