Glade settles at Houghton Hall

The Glade Festival, which takes place next month from Friday 10th until Sunday 12th June has revealed it will now be held at Houghton Hall, King’s Lynn, in Norfolk. Last week the Festival lost its pre-arranged site in Bigglewade, reportedly despite signed contracts, after the trustees of Mansion House, in Biggleswade, where the event was due to happen this year, decided they did not want the event to take place on their site. Organiser ans told “The trustees at the Mansion House decided that they didn’t want the event after all, despite contracts signed and deposits paid. The new Glade team decided not to tell me so that it wouldn’t ruin my big day [Ans’ wedding] and what they have done, amazingly, is manage to miraculously find another venue. The new site, whilst being a bit further away from London, is by far superior. It is set in beautiful, privately owned 5,000 acre Estate which set in beautiful parkland laid out in the 1720’s. It is also on sand, meaning excellent drainage, so we won’t be having a repeat of the floods of 2009, regardless of the weather.” Houghton Hall is situated just outside King’s Lynn where the nearest rail station is (mainline from  Kings Cross). There will be shuttle buses running between the site and the Hall.

Headliners include Trentemoller, Drumcode Records and Global Communication and also confirmed are Andrew Weatherall, Photek, Dreadzone, Krafty Kuts, Hybrid, Dirtyphonics, Skrillex, Engine-Earz Experiment, Dub FX & Flower Fairy, Dub Pistols and Dirty Vegas.
