Glade Records: The Glade
The Glade Festival grew from the unofficial and proper underground dance stage at Glastonbury and has now run for 3 hugely successful years. With 12500 tickets being sold in 2006 without any advertising outside of using their mailing list and without announcing any part of the lineup, the event is a phenomenon on the UK dance music and festival scene. With 9 stages covering all aspects of non-commercialised electronic music from Techno and House through to Breaks and Psy Trance and on into more experimental, ambient and just down right crazy vibes! It is the must go music festival for connoisseurs of contemporary electronic music.
Here we have a superbly mixed journey across the more upfront styles of music showcased at the Glade, with tracks by the likes of Squarepusher, Dreadzone, AFX, System 7, Hallucinogen, Meat Katie and Elite Force, The Egg, Protoculture and many more.
Accompanying the CD is a DVD filmed at the first two Glade Festivals, with performances from Squarepusher, Rennie Pilgrem, Hallucinogen, Dreadzone, System 7, Tristan and again loads more. There are interviews with people who went, the organisers and a load of the artists and the DVD gives you a real glimpse into the festival and an insight into where it all started!
