    Yea, glade sounds good, but i think anti world beats that for me, the lineup is just too good. And if you mean global gathering, then im gonna be goin to that too. haha been the last 2 years. needless to say it was bangin both times!

    you could put it as simply

    glade – mostly psy based but other genres present not all electronic

    antiworld – loads of psy and other genres

    they both attract different crowds

    every antiworld party ive been to has been spot on, ermm glade for me is just a 15 min drive or bus away so it gets my vote because i can pop home for a shower which on a hot day and after a evening of stompin is sister bliss.

    Another festival well worth a look is Beatherder. Think it used to be a party, but last year they went legit and put on a proper festival. Beautiful site on a farm/woods in Lancashire, loads of different music on the main stage (last year Dreadzone, Eat Static… various rock/ska/hip-hop etc. bands), big rig set up in the woods playin techno, breaks, dnb… few more systems around the place in tents. Really intimate festival, loads of random shit to explore – the underground tunnel tht came out under the gramophone in some old persons living room was probably the weirdest thing I’ve ever discovered. I dont hav anything to do with organising it, just thought I’d giv it a mention cos it was the highlight of last year for me.

    well i had been in work for like 10 hours on the sat, when i finished, called me mate and said ”can you pick me up and drop me off at glade”, im known for my blags and tried everything when i got there, some nearly worked but eventually i had to resort to fence jumping again, theres a little place unknown to most where you can walk into the festival untouched, needs timing, stupidity and no ket on the walk there like last time haha

    they where wanting ยฃ100 for the sunday … fook that

    and yeah the guy with dreads was a legend and ive been meaning to thank him … basically, he asked me about my wristband (of course i didnt have one and he knew this from the off) some security guys saw he was talking to me and came over to ask what was going on, he knew id get kicked out without a doubt and probably driven far off site and maybe even have a few cheeky digs in the stomach so he just said

    ”he’s lost it and his ticket so im going up with him to get another from HQ”

    they left and said ”ok alright”

    fucking legend he has my ultimate respect raaa

    we didnt get the wristband btw, but he saved my ass

    unfortunately as well as there being plenty of people in security firms who enjoy “knocking about a few hippies” (legal) festies are full of CID who check to see if the security are being overly lax with regard to drugs, and then report back to the licensing committee if this is so

    OTOH if these undercover cops see searches and ejections they go away happy as “anti-drugs licensing conditions are being complied with”

    there has never been real acceptance of festivals in this country (the excessive ticket prices are a sign of this as the councils grudgingly only accept them if they can maybe make a bit of money)

    did you know that many councils treat dealing with a festival under the “area major incident protocol” – which is the same protocol used for dealing with terrorist attacks, civil disturbances and environmental disasters?
