Having spent its formative first five years at Glastonbury, electronic beats feast Glade Festival fled the nest in 2004 to start up on its own. With an acclaimed debut, some of the most pioneering names in dance music have since been clamouring for a slot, with the Sasha, Aphex Twin and The Bays all appearing in recent years.

So far, the location of the event has been kept secret until the last minute in an attempt to keep out fence jumpers. The Glade is a uniquely corporate-free festival and a must for cutting-edge dance enthusiasts, offering up a mix of psy-trance, nu breaks and electronic mayhem over three days.
