Glade Unveil Their Latest Explosive Line-Up

Reported by Jack Bridges TID on April 28, 2010

Étienne  de Crécy | Matthew Dear | Claude Von Stroke | Delphic | Chrome Hoof |  Errors | Stereo MCs | Joris Voorn | Freestylers | Freq Nasty | Hybrid |  Yousef | Ed Rush | Jimmy Edgar | Foreign Beggars | Jamie Jones | Riva  Starr + more!

Check  for complete  line-up.  Highlighted as one of the “Coolest events of 2010” in last Sunday’s  Times Style, Glade has consistently produced the most  innovative and original electronic line-ups of any UK festival and this  year it is shaping up to be the best yet. Having already announced an  amazing array of headliners and supporting artists over the past two  months, Glade has now added Etienne de Crecy, Delphic, Matthew  Dear, Claude Von Stroke, Delphic, Chrome Hoof, Errors, Joris Voorn, Stereo  MCs, Freestylers, Freq Nasty, Hybrid, Ed Rush, Jimmy Edgar, Foreign  Beggars, Jamie Jones and Riva Starr.

The  who’s-who of electronic superstars will be performing at the four-day  British bender from Thursday 15th – Sunday 18th July at Matterley  Bowl, Winchester.

Étienne de Crécy is  known for his visually outstanding live performances with his kitted out  ‘light cubes’ – if you haven’t seen this before be sure to catch this  unmissable experience. Often credited as being one of the pioneers of the  ‘French touch’ sound, De Crécy’s smashing drums, deep basslines and  psychedelic synth meddlings are sure to keep the Glade crowd dancing. He  also founded the Solid record label, collaborated with  Philippe Zdar of Cassius and Alex Gopher and released the  ‘Tempovision’ album along with numerous singles of his own. He’ll  be performing the premier of his ‘Beats ‘n’ Cubes’ new live  show.

Matthew Dear may be a  chameleon, but whether he's making more pop-oriented fare under his own  name, big-room minimal as Audion, or more rigorous minimalism as False,  his discography reflects someone who is a studious observer of club  culture. With releases on M_NUS, Perlon  and Spectral Sound he has firmly established himself as  an internationally known techno artist. Joining Matthew is Claude  Von Stroke, owner of techfunk label dirtybird  which recently celebrated its 5th anniversary. Dirtybird  has released over 40 EPs and Von Stroke has released two  successful artist albums, a mix for Fabric and over 25 remixes including  techno legend Kevin Saunderson.

Manchester trio  Delphic evoke the spirit of Madchester’s Hacienda days in  a forward-thinking, indie-rave type get up and we can’t wait to see them  live. Joining them are the genre-trashing, visually spectacular  Chrome Hoof and Glade favourites Stereo  MCs who also smashed it at the Glade stage at Glastonbury last  year.

Breakbeat stalwarts Freestylers, Freq Nasty  and Hybrid will be keeping the breakers entertained  whilst leftfield UK hip-hoppers Foreign Beggars make  their Glade Festival debut. There are some talents that remain  inconspicuous and there are some you can't ignore. Jamie  Jones is the latter. The rising superstar has already cemented an  underground status in electro-tech dance circles over recent years and  we’re thrilled to have him DJ for us at Glade.

These new artists  join the previously announced Orbital, Simian Mobile Disco,  Tricky, Jeff Mills, Magnetic Man, Green Velvet, Autechre,  Krafty Kuts vs. A Skillz, Holy Ghost!, Boy Better Know, Skream b2b Benga,  DJ Zinc, Seth Troxler, Craig Richards, Clark, Plastician, Fuck Buttons,  The Field, Wolf + Lamb, X-Press 2, Avalon, DJ Friction and  London Elektricity amongst others...

Not only are  the organisers confident the line-up will be a big hit this year, but  their deposit scheme has also been a huge success.  Several thousand  festival attendees for this year’s event have so far paid a deposit but  all good things must come to an end and the last chance to take full  advantage of the deposit scheme is May 1st. So, if you can’t afford  splashing out full whack on a ticket now but want to reserve a ticket you  only have until this weekend to do so. Go to for more  details.

Finally, we’re chuffed to bits to confirm that we have the  return of the Pussy Parlour after a year’s  hiatus. The 1930’s burlesque Spiegel tent will be serving  cocktails and host parties by Last FM and  Kubikle. Arcadia will be back for its second consecutive  year and will no doubt be blowing the roof off - yet again.

Glade  now enters its seventh year – described as ‘Like Glastonbury for  electronic music lovers’ it continues to evolve as a unique hybrid between  a rave and a fully fledged English festival. Tickets are on sale for £135  and a handful of discounted student tickets for £110.  Glade is also running a £50 deposit scheme until 1st May.
