Festival Description

The electronic festival takes place at Houghton Hall in Norwich. Atmospherically Glade Festival offers festival-goers the opportunity to escape the trappings of the real world and to find solace with other music and fun loving people. Glade continues to up the ante on an outstanding music experience by adding new features each year. The awesome roster of electronic musicians — live dance acts and DJs you are bound to stay on your feet dancing to psy-trance and dubstep for hours. But when you’re ready for a break there is plenty going on at the healing arts — including massage, reiki, saunas and baths.

Festival Story:

The team have been working round the clock to ensure that Glade remains a friendly, awe-inspiring wonderland to party in. Amazing new site art, circus performances, stage designs and décor, lights and lasers will make this year a visceral audio visual assault of the senses. As well as this there have been significant improvements elsewhere with extended camping areas and increased disabled access.
