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.

Expect a market, sound systems and cafes such as Chai Wallahs, Come and Play, One Tribe World Stage, Punjabi Lounge, and TRiBE of FRoG - The Frog Pond.

The festival has full camping facilities, car park, licensed bars open until late, food stalls and markets, and more besides.
