    I am distraught, easily the best festival around with amazing atmosphere and music. Last year was raving from 12pm to 6am every day and saw no trouble. This years lineup was massive featuring Friction, Ed Rush, Danny byrd, london elek, Adam F, brookes brothers, dj zinc, skream & benga, redlight, doorly and loads more. Was looking forward to this so much.

    Then 14 residents complain, force a license review and the police raise the cost of security by £100,000, bleeding the money out of the organisers. Disgrace

    What an arse.

    It's a pity as Glade had a nice vibe - obviously the police at Matterly Bowl (Hampshire) are onto them - remember going to Homelands in '03 there and they were doing random stop & search of cars at the entrance, had 'drug amnesty bins' on the walk to the bowl then had single file past sniffer dogs at the gate - there were a lot of worried faces! Plus when we left to get back to london at around 1am they were setting up some serious road block search type affair - pretty scary.

    So it's the coppers fault.

    No the organisers have said they plan to organise Glade 2011 despite this,

    what happened to Homelands then? Sounds like it had the same problems as Glade

    Dumb thing is, the filth/authorities just push parties underground & lose out on any potential revenue they could bleed out of promoters/organisers & lose the ability to actively Police/Monitor them...

    Utter Spengs.

    you aint the first one to suggest this, a sit in has been suggested too, as have flashmobs in Winchester. Currently the strongest idea is a massive free rave somewhere in Hampshire, already got about 8 separate companies donating 40kw Funktion One soundsystems and many of the original Glade lineup are happy to DJ for free. Id love to go to an illegal rave, sounds wicked :teeth:

    Also, another Castlemorton Common festival is being planned for May 2012. The last one in 1992 lasted a week and 20,000 - 40,000 people turned up http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castlemorton_Common_Festival
