Carl Craig, Freestylers and more for Glade
Festival relocates to Matterley Bowl
31 March 2009
Also included and completing the most recent line-up announcements
are Starkey, Leeroy Thornhill, Koma & Bones and Radio 1 favourite Annie
Nightingale whilst London electro night Mulletover and breaks label Finger Lickin’
host their own club nights on the Saturday and Sunday respectively.
The Finger Lickin’
night will be dubbed Finger Lickin’ Funk, an indication of the wild funk meets breaks antics that will
be pumping through its weekend slot.
The festival is set to take place at the newly confirmed Matterley Bowl site in Winchester, Hampshire (where Homelands used to take place) giving the festival, its main stages and intimate venues the freedom to take things into the early hours on each of the four nights.
likes of Underworld, Juan Atkins, Booka Shade and Squarepusher are all present
at the top of the bill for this summer which also includes world music forces Femi Kuti and the Positive
Force Band, Nitin Sawhney and Finley
Quaye on the Glade Stage which is set to return in full force.

The festival will also feature 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 chiefs have also said that the 2009 event will have a look and feel of Mad Max meets Alice In Wonderland with 3D surreal installations and otherworldly spaces.
