Just got this e-mail through about this years. I wish it didn't clash with Truck.
We are going ahead this year and the date is the weekend of the 20th-22nd July…
We are in the process of applying for the license, as we always are at this
time, and the new website will soon be up and running.
We have had a good look at the festival and have added 3 new stages, as well as
some amazing new ideas to increase the creative diversity of what we do – its
gonna be wicked. The lineups are already shaping up to be nothing but the best
in electronic music and we will start releasing more details over the next few
weeks and months.
Some details that you may like to know now include the fact that we have been
thinking hard on two issues that needed attention after last year, those being
sound levels on some of the stages and also security.
We have been talking to some of the leading sound system designers in the UK and
have come up with a strategy to deliver clear sound across the site while at the
same time dramatically reducing the sound footprint of the event in the local
area - we will be putting the latest Funktion 1 'Ambisonic' surround sound
systems into all the late night venues. This will mean that the quality of the
sound IN the arenas will be level, clear and loud. However the technology has an
amazing noise cancelling ability that will mean that the local community will
get disturbed far less than they have in the past.
Also, we are again placing an enormous amount of attention on how we run the
security at the event and have a new plan that will ensure the safety of
everyone at the event and outside but with a special emphasis on making sure the
security inside the arena are firm but also friendly.
Tickets will be going on sale soon… and as always will only initially be
available through a link that will be sent from us in an email, so if you know
people who are keen to come then please get them to subscribe to our mailing
list at our website.
Otherwise that's all for now, but we hope you're all very well and we are very
excited about starting the build up to our festival once more.
Thanks and all the best from us all at Glade HQ.
