EXCLUSIVE: Underworld to headline Glade
New home, new arenas, student ticket offer extended
25 February 2009
Organisers have secured the dance troupe, famed for tracks like 'Born Slippy', 'Rez' and 'Cowgirl',
on a UK festival exclusive for 2009.
Glade bosses have also announced that underground dons BLOC, who curate BLOC Weekend, will host the Vapor Stage at the festival this July.
As previously reported, Glade is set to move from its Berkshire home to a secret location near Winchester for this year's event.
The move has also prompted festival bosses to create new arenas including the post apocalypse Carmaggedon Area and plenty of other venues hosted by Breaksday, Overkill, Nu-Skool Breaks, Dublime, Cool And Deadly and KISS FM's Jay Cunning.
Elsewhere there will be art mind bending site art from Nevada's Burning Man Festival, the scrap yard regeneration creations of the Mutoid Waste Company and the twisted cabaret of the Interstella Circus.
Another new area for the festival is the Avalon Field, which organisers describe as "a festival within a festival." The arena will have music, art and all forms of expression, born out of the 60s psychedelic scene.
Glade Festival 2009 is set to take place from 16-19 July with tickets already on sale priced at £125 for a weekend pass.
The £100 student ticket offer has been extended until the end of March due to a good early response.
