Glade Festival is set on fire
Festival site descends into a ritual burning
Joe Taylor - 12 June 2011
The relaxed vibe that set the tone of the festival was thrown out by revellers as the giant pyramid at the heart of the
site burst into flame.
Encircled by a myriad of performers, the show left the crowd dazzled as the party atmosphere cranked up a notch. A chant of "I AM FIRE! WE ARE FIRE!" rang out, orchestrated by I Am Fya, fresh from a set of erotic dub poetry offset by deep, brooding basslines.
Saturday night at Glade was one of surprises from smaller live bands, defiant in the face of the Overkill stage's line-up of fierce Breakcore. A closing set from the DJ Producer saw the filthiest electronic sounds the festival has seen to date.
