The Glade Area


DSC02197

The Glade Area was spawned from the Avalon Field back in the late ’90s. The Avalon stage music was broadening from its pure English folk music. We mixed up traditional folk like the Peat Bog Faeries, Roy harper, John Martyn and the Martin Carthy, with Afro Celt Sound System, Ozric Tentacles, System Seven, Squarepusher and a whole raft of new roots music and psychedelia. As Toby Marks from Banco de Gaia said recently on BBC 6 Music “Avalon was the first area to recognise new electronic music and this is one of the first times that dance music had been given more space at the festival”.

It was decided to start a new area further along the railway towards the Other Stage. Using the small triangle of poplar trees and mature woodland tucked below the embankment it was named The Glade.

Since launching The Glade has become known as the destination for all those who love alternative underground dance music, leftfield and experimental sounds, dub, reggae and of course the occasional live band.
