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.

The Meteor Stage makes its debut this year, hidden in a thirty foot deep crater with trees around its edges and bass bins at its core. Deeper in you will find the Liquid Stage, a psychedelic adventure that lasts until eight in the morning. Deeper still you’ll come across members of the Secret Garden family, whether it be medieval bard-core ravers of feral fever badger discos. It sounds insane, and probably will be.
Presented by East London underground party Uppercut, The Meteor is the first of our concept stages this year. Playing all the latest sounds of the underground, surrounded by trees, and kicking off the party of Thursday, this is a stage we’re very excited about.

The Glade is proud tocall itself the UK’s spiritual home of psychedelic culture and the Psychedelic Village is a celebration of this. With the mighty Origin Stage at the heart of this area playing host to Nano Records 10th Birthday Party and powered by glorious Funktion 1, this stage will be banging come rain or shine. This year we are more than chuffed to welcome back the Liquid Stage, which will runfrom dusk ‘til dawn in our beautiful new forest area (more on that below…) and playing host to the cream of the UK scene. Providing respite from the onslaught of EDM, no Glade would be complete without InSpiral who this year focuses on chill out with a superb line up to make your journey complete. InSpiral will be laying down the chillout 24hours a day, so if you find it hard to sleep, there’ll always be somewhere to go where the vibes are gentle, the cushions soft and the people magical
This year we also welcome the team that built the incredible Ozora festival over the past seven years. They will be helpingwith the décor and production throughout the Village and much more.
AND THERE’S MORE…
Remix Roller Disco –Home to every kind of remix mash up imaginable, from electro-swing to hoe-step, this venue is going to be full of fun, day and night. With some serious programming from people who are constantly pushing and blurring boundaries of musical genres in the every direction, this is going to be a sight to behold.
Bardcore – The merry pranksters Feast of Fools, a long standing collective who feature at The Secret Garden Party every year, will be bringing not only their mead bar, but also their merry band of players, performers and misfits, who will lead the late night fireside story telling. A beautiful, inclusive and entertaining bunch of characters, expect a mead fueled party of old until the wee hours…
Artful Badger –Another collective from the Garden joining us at glade this year, we welcome the Artful Badgers, feral disco denizens where the party always gets as weird and surreal as it does down right rude and dirty. If you’ve not seen these guys in action, you’re in for a treat…
Extended Licensing – There’s some great news for all those who really love to party. This year, we’ll be opening the doors on the festival at MIDDAY on Thursday, and will have music on a number of stages until MIDNIGHT. We’re also very pleased to announce that a number of our stages will be running until 6am and one until 8am on Saturday and Sunday morning, giving you a proper session.
New Sanctuary – This year, the Sanctuary is evolving. There will of course still be an incredible healing area, with therapists skilled in all the holistic arts – from reiki to massage, acupuncture to reflexology, gong therapy, holistic therapy and all that’s in between. We’re also introducing a spa, consisting of hot tubs, saunas, sweat lodges, changing rooms and more. All brought together in a beautiful area in and out of the trees. This will be a place to relax, indulge yourself and get seriously clean, both inside and out.
Cafés – This year at Glade, we’ve poured a great deal of love into our cafes and food stalls. Places to chill, laugh…and eat cake! We believe cafes are the heart and soul of any independent festival, so this year we’ve gone all out to source some of the best independent traders around. Our food court will be a place to meet your missing friends, take a breather from the madness of the festival, regroup,relax and unwind. With a huge variety of food and drink from all around the world on offer, including many vegetarian and vegan options, we’re looking forward to seeing you there.
Boutique Camping information:
Gladers who fancy treating themselves to a little luxury over the festival can do no better than getting involved in boutique camping. With several packages on offer including tipis, yurts and even Beryl – a three bed Cornish country cottage on wheels – there is no better way to experience Glade. Private facilities, including express parking and festival tickets, come as standard, with each package. For a full range of options as well as booking info check out:
Compost Loos – We’re very pleased indeed to be the first festival of our size in the UK to be running entirely on compost toilets! Compost loos smell less, are more spacious, more environmentally friendly and much less ugly than your average festival portaloo.
