Forward-thinking electronic music & arts festival wants YOU!

Back in 2004, a renegade sound system was developed where people could hear proper electronic music in a colourful and free-spirited environment. The Glade Festival soon became known as the festival for all kinds of house, techno, breaks and electronica, deep in the English countryside. From the micro-raves to the 21st Century Cinema camp, the burning pyramids to sunrise parties, Glade is full of the unexpected, the baffling, the fiercely independent, and the eclectic. And that goes for both the music and the people.

After a change of event space last year, Glade is back in 2012, and they are launching a DJ competition to find some new talent to join their ranks. The winner will receive a coveted slot at Glade 2012, featuring on a lineup that already includes electronic heavyweight DJs such as Sven Väth, Vitalic, Andy C, Rusko, Pretty Lights, MarcRomboy, Jimmy Edgar, SL2 and many more. Also included will be two tickets for this summer’s four-day festivities and some food and travel money for good measure.
