Glade Festival is arguably Britain’s biggest and best non-corporate electronic dance music festival,

The Glade experience is one of beautiful countryside and beautiful beats, where you can party until dawn without disturbance and without a care. Houghton Hall is one of the few places in the UK where such an experience can be had. No matter which community or tribe, all are invited to  come together and participate in this never-to-be-forgotten  four-day celebration. It is your very own electric Eden. So what are you waiting for….

With an incredible site and a stellar lineup over 14 stages showcasing hundreds of DJs and live acts from around the globe, Glade 2012 is set to become the must-go-to festival for all lovers of underground electronic music.

This enchanted wooded and open parkland site at Houghton Hall (which has not been used for any other music festival), is without a doubt the perfect permanent home for Glade. Behind the scenes the award-winning Secret Productions team (promoter of the year in the 2011 Festival Awards) will be taking care of the production and contributing that extra-special SGP twist to proceedings.  Expect a mouth-watering four days of fun-fuelled mayhem. Glade 2012 is back to show every other UK dance festival how it’s done.
