Glade to return in 2014

Glade to return in 2014

published on 04.04.13

The Glade Festival will be taking a year off, organisers have announced.

The Glastonbury electronic spin-off, which usually runs for four days, will return to the festival fold in 2014.

The decision to not put on Glade 2013 appears to be one of over-saturation in the festival marketplace.

“Glade continues to challenge the status quo of the now over saturated festival scene and we are very keen to ensure that it always brings something just that little bit different,” read a statement. "It is with this in mind that the powers that be at Glade have decided that we will not be releasing dates for the annual 4-day festival this summer.

“There will be much needed time spent regrouping and reassessing in preparation to bring you the Glade festival of all festivals in the summer of 2014.”

Instead of the festival event, a special 24-hour party is being planned in London for the summer.

No word on the what/where/who just yet, but there will also be a Glade London stage every week, in a team-up with Project Sound, at Ministry of Sound over the summer.

“This will be an opportunity to showcase a different stage from the festival each week and be a chance to be part of something exciting and new it will bring you an amazing cross-section of the best up and coming electronic music fused with that which you know,” they went on.
