Glade Offical Statement

Post by Functional Biff » Fri Feb 09, 2007 9:59 pm

Firstly the newspaper report is inaccurate and has quotes taken from Luke that are out of context.

NO event in the UK is granted a full license to open and for performances to start until the event. At Glastonbury we have been still waiting to get signed off with DJs at the decks ready to go at 12.00 on Friday!

The license for Glade was knocked back on a technicality NOT REFUSED, we are reapplying for the weekend of the 20th 21st 22nd July, the original date for 2007 We moved the festival back a week as it clashed with a lot of European Festivals, it will give us more chance of getting some acts we were unable to book in the past.

The license hearing is set for March there are no reasons why we won’t get a license that were not there before the application had been made. We have objectors and we have supporters from the local community, noise from the site has been a problem and we can show that we have addressed the issues by using the same system as used on last years Origin Stage and changing the format of the stages a little.

This is not an unusual thing to happen with Festivals we had the same at Beautiful Days in year 2 and Glastonbury had many many battles each year to get a license. We are building a small self sufficient town in the middle of the country for 12,000 people and the council have to make it right for the everyone that comes and the locals, that is the process we are going through.
We have been working on lineups and have some pretty cool acts and DJs wanting to play. I would expect Tickets to go on sale at the beginning of April.

and some other news
Glastonbury Festival, Beatz & Bobz will be taking over the G Stage on the Friday with a monster breaks line up as part of the 10th Birthday celebrations.
The old Glade area is going to be quite different this year…..
We have started on the line ups for the main dance tents and the breaks community is going to be very well represented.

And watch out for the second of our Glade spinoff events STIR on April 20th at a legendry London venue…….
Full details and line ups nest week….

Was gonna say in the other thread that in past years Glastonbury doesn't have it's licence til the day, it's how most events run, makes things easier to change bits and pieces last minute and stay within the law

aka DJ RYU

ryu comes with wine in hand
his followers smile, what a wonderful man
but lo, their joy will not last long
for ryu is vengeful and ryu is strong
the chalice they offer to hold their mead
shatters to pieces and flesh does bleed

Will they be staggered from the Glasto ticket sales? Doubt if a lot of people will be able to afford both at once so it'd be better for everyone..

Either way Glade's probably my priority but it'd be cool to do both..

It's only Glasto that makes you pay by debit card. With Glade, you can whack it on the credit card, which might help spread the load a little?
