  • Glade was awesome, but I think that was mostly down to being camped with lovely people and working at Tea and Empathy.


    I had a good time, and there were just enough artists to see that my evenings were filled but there wasn't enough of the other cool stuff you get at some festivals like instalations, film screenings and performance, and healing areas (ok there was a small tent ot two). Glade is a music festival but I get the idea that for most people there, it really was all about shoveling as many drugs into their bodies as humanly possible, and where as I'm certainly not anti drugs I think that level of excess does end up taking away from the festival vibe - and you wouldn't take your kids there.


    Probabably would go again, but there are plenty of better festivals to choose from!

    Depends on what music you like really, for me the Glade is the ultimate festival (were the drugs that bad this year?) - other festivals have so much rubbish, thus I don't buy a ticket.


    Last Glade I was on holiday, this one I had to work and the Sunrise festival was cancelled! Not been a good year festival-wise for me.


    :(

    That's what I thought too. When the music stages shut down at night and particularly sunday night, what better place to screen some movies .In fact, even dance based ones for example..and how about an outdoor lazer show or projections ?
