Well, the Glade Stage is going out on its own...

GLASTONBURY’s GLADE STAGE is branching out by itself and creating its own festival – set to debut this summer.

The Glade Festival will take place between July 16-18 on a country estate near Reading, and will feature performances from Timo Maas, Freq Nasty, Dreadzone Sound System, 808 State, Squarepusher, Youth and AFX amongst others.

The festival will be located in forty acres of English woodland, 55 miles along the M4 from London and 5,500 people are expected to flock to see the artists. Also planned to for the event are stilt-walking S&M fire twirlers, Buddhist monks, juggling punks, massages and energetic healing.

There will be seven main arenas for The Glade Festival, including the Main Dance Tent, Breaksday Tent, Origin Stage, Sancho Panza Tent, Liquid Stage, The Caukus Roadshow and Solar Chill.

Maps and directions will be sent out with the tickets three weeks prior to the festival.
