TRENTEMØLLER (FULL LIVE BAND)
Headlining this year’s festival is one of the most celebrated electronic artists in the world Trentemøller. Having built his reputation releasing on labels such as Audiomatique, Poker Flat and Naked, as well as having hits with remixes of Djuma Soundsystem, Yoshitmoto, Röyksopp and many more following the launch of his debut album The Last Resort, Anders Trentemøller’s truly incredible live show went on to conquer the world and we’re really excited to welcome him to Glade where he will be bringing his full live band and stage show.

DRUMCODE feat. ADAM BEYER,
SLAM, PAUL RICH (LIVE) & JOSEPH CAPRIATI
Saturday night is all about techno and we’ve handed the keys over to Drumcode Records to bring us a monster line up featuring label boss Adam Beyer, Scottish techno legends SLAM, Paul Rich live and Joseph Capriati. Adam has had prolific releases on labels such as Plus-8, NovaMute and Cocoon before establishing his own imprints. Headlining festivals and clubs across the globe, Adam embodies all that is exciting about techno. SLAM define UK techno - from their infamous Friday night residency at The Sub Club in Glasgow - to delivering hits such as Positive Education, Eterna and Lifetimes. They set up the Soma imprint in 1991 which still runs as one of the most seminal labels in its electronic music. French techno artist Paul Rich delivers a live showcase of his music whilst Jospeh Capriati from Italy rounds things off nicely.
GLOBAL COMMUNICATION (DJ SET)
Global Communication AKA Tom Middleton and Mark Pritchard can be cited as one of the UK’s most prolific production duos. With more production aliases than any other electronic artist (...probably) the South-West based duo form GC in 1991 after Tom’s work with Aphex Twin and Mark enjoyed chart success with a dodgy rave-rework of kids TV show ‘Rhubarb & Custard’ Their debut album 76:14 is one of the most acclaimed ambient albums from the early 90’s. Having taken a break briefly in 1997 to focus on a plethora of other projects the duo have reformed and back to deliver what looks set to be one of the highlights of the weekend, starting off with ambient soundscapes building up to dancefloor beats, closing the Glade Stage on Sunday evening.
Andrew Weatherall co-founded UK-underground fanzine Boys Own in the late 80’s which documented the Acid House boom. His productionwork included the remix Hallelujah by Happy Mondays and World In Motion by New Order. After leaving Boys Own he formed The Sabres Of Paradise, Two Lone Swordsmen and Rotters Golf Club. He has gone on to produce Beth Orton, Primal Scream and remix Bjork, The Orb, FSOL, Manic Street Preachers and many more.
UK drum n bass pioneer Photek is set to perform live at this summers Glade and anyone who’s experessed even a vague interest in the scene since the mid 90’s will know we’re in for a real treat. Rupert ‘Photek’ Parkes has been instrumental in shaping the mid 90’s experimental d’n’b sound with seminal releases including ‘The Water Margin’, ‘Into The 90’s’ and ‘Mine To Give’ (featuring Robert Owens) With new music out, Radio 1 support and a whole lot of hype surrounding his new live show, we extremely excited to have this man at our event.
AND THE REST...
Over the weekend we’re pleased to welcome performances from a whole host of talent - from festival favourites such as Dreadzone, Dub Pistols, Krafty Kuts, Hybrid and Dirty Vegas - to the superfresh, bass-heavy sounds of Skrillex, Engine Earz Experiment and Dirtyphonics, without a doubt three of the most exciting artists around. Add to this a very special performance from UK beatbox / vocalist Dub FX and The Flower Fairy (not to be missed) alongside Glade veteran DJs Ben & Lex and with more announcements to come, this years Glade Stage is looking pretty tasty.
The UK’s spiritual home of psychedelic trance, this amazing and colourful outdoor arena welcomes the biggest and best names in the scene. Featuring UK psy trance pioneers Tristan, Dickster, Man With No Name and Prometheus alongside a whole host of fresh live acts and DJs from across the globe including Headroom Room and The Commercial Hippies (South Africa) Logica (Brazil) Edoardo (Italy) and Emok (Denmark?) representing all spectrums of the psy trance scene as well as a special live performances from Atmos and UK electro and dubstep outfit Atomic Drop.
The Overkill Stage is Glade Festival’s bastard offspring bringing together a collection of IDM’s leading lights taking in breakcore, gabba, dubstep, rave, glitch, drone and beyond. If you like your beats more left of centre then ladies and gentlemen, step right up. Headline Live acts include three very rare UK performances from Richard Devine, Eprom and Eskmo, three producers from the USA all of which are considered geniuses within their own field. Wrong Music main man Shitmat makes a welcome return alongside new talent in the form of Young Montana, Loops Haunt, Baconhead and many more melting the parameters of music and sound.
We can’t do a festival without these wonderful and creative people. Their Chill Out Lounge has been a firm fixture at the Glade since we launched providing a wonderfully relaxed environment for festival-goers to sit, relax and recharge with the best in organic sustenance wrapped up in their own warm and friendly style. This year the lounge morphs into its own arena with all the usual fine trappings and provding a space to chill by day but as the evening progesses as does the music featuring grooving techno and progressive treats. Highlights include Guadi live and DJs sets from Dick Trevor, George Barker and Naked Nick.
