The Glade stage at Glastonbury Festival has been the forum for cutting edge electronic and dance music. In 2004 the team behind it, whilst continuing to run the stage at Glastonbury, broke away to start their own event.

Much of the line-up is confirmed including The Orb, Ulrich Shnauss, Red Snapper, Pitch Black, Dubfire, Jeff Mills, Pendulum, Frequency 7, James Holden, Plump DJs, Flip Flop, Logic Bomb, Perfect Stranger, Protoculture, Aquasky, Cntrl Z, Elite Force, Jay Cunning, Quest and MC Ken Mac, Rennie Pilgrem, Autechre Black Rabbit, Vex'd, Daedelus, Rotator, Far Too Loud, Fromem Ory, Sketchy Pimps, Subsource, Zub Zub, Albert Joseph, Abai, Spoonbill, Pathaan, Anahata, Liquid Djems, Nagual Sound Experiment, and Zen Mechanics. There will be many more added in the coming months. For the line-up details, day and stage splits as available please click here.

The event showcases electronic music from the UK and the world. It has around ten music areas, covering genres of techno, house, breaks, psy trance, dub, ambient and more. Expect the stages to open each day by early afternoon, and to run into the early hours.

The Chillout area has evolved... It's now the inSpiral Chill. With a new feel and look run by the people behind the inSpiral Lounge in Camden and Aliji who will be programming the music and performance to create a space where you will be able to relax, heal and recharge with an amazing organic cafe, beautiful decor and downtempo music.

Plus Sancho Panza hosted by 'Very Very Wrong Indeed' with Mr C, Mike Monday and Tim Sheridan, Jimmy K-Tel, Matt Brown and DJ Garth.

Bang Face, the founders of Neo-Rave, return for Circus Maximus in the Overkill arena. The first official Neo-Rave commemorating the Great Fire of Rome which broke out in the Circus Maximus on this day in A.D. 64. Featuring CJ Bolland, Remarc, Hellfish, Bong-Ra, Vibes & LiveLess, Glowstyx, The Doubtful Guest, Saint Acid, and the Bang Face crew. Come dressed in ancient Roman garb from 10pm - 4am @ Glade Festival, Overkill Stage, on Friday 18th July.
