Fans were left devastated when the award-winnning Glade announced its cancellation, earlier in the week, due to unmanageable supplier costs. There is now some light at the end of the tunnel, as Glade's organisers have arranged ticket swaps with a number of other events.
A statement on the Official Glade website advises fans to just let Ticketline (Glade's ticket agent) know which event they would like to swap their tickets for, and it will be arranged.
The following events, are now available (click on the links on the right for more info & line-ups):
Lounge on the Farm (Best Line-up, 2009)*
- Lovebox Weekender (Best Medium Festival, 2008)
- Global Gathering (Shortlisted: Best Dance Festival, 2004-2009)
- Sunrise Celebration (Best Socially Responsible Festival, 2007)
- Big Chill (Best Toilets, 2007 & 2008)
- Standon Calling (Most Memorable Moment, 2008)
- Beachbreak Live (Best Small Festival, 2009)
- Nozstock - Hosted in nearby Herefordshire, there will be a strong dance and dubstep contingent at the event including Stanton Warriors, Capsa with MC Rod Azlan, Sub Focus and many more.

Where the replacement ticket was cheaper than the original Glade ticket, as in Sunrise's case, for example, Ticketline will even refund the difference.
Daniel Hurring, Sunrise Director says, “As fellow independent festival
organisers we felt deeply saddened about the Glade being cancelled this year. Many of our team have worked for the Glade over
the years and our hearts go out to the organisers. We hope to see the Glade back again next year – we’re living
proof that the phoenix can indeed rise from the ashes!”
