Glade Festival set to return in 2011

Glade Festival, the multi-genre dance event that was cancelled last year due to increased legal and security costs, is set to make a comeback in 2011.

Organisers took to the event's Facebook page to announce the news.

In a statement, festival bosses wrote: "we are so excited to tell you.. WE – ARE – BACK."

“We are thrilled to be able to say that the Glade will be back in 2011. The festival is being revolutionised yet stripped back to its shiny grass roots…half the capacity that it was in the  last few years and  getting back to its original spirit but with a big step forward creatively, musically and artistically," explained organiser Anselm Guise further.

"We’ve been dying to let everyone know that it is definitely here again and with everything that’s happened we’ve had to ensure that we’ve got something to excite, that we can make happen and that will be a true celebration of life, music and art. We now can," he added.

"Half the battle was finding the right home for the festival and we really have. We’ve found a belter…proper English parkland where we can do our thing…trees everywhere! The Glade is back…!”

Festival fans received the news warmly, giving it 275 'likes' in an hour with Glade fan Lee Cocking commenting: "That's made my week, month, year!!"

Sonia Heywood agreed: "This is truly excellent news. See you in the field :)"

The festival will run from 10-12 June 2011 in a secret location an hour and a half away from London.

Organisers say that the event will be "SMALLER, BACK TO ITS ROOTS" and encouraged fans to join their mailing list for the latest updates.

A link to buy Glade Festival tickets will appear on Virtual Festivals when they are released.
