Huge DJ Line-Up Announced for Glastonbury’s Glade Area 2017
In a week where Glastonbury announced artists set to appear on several of the stages at 2017’s festival, news has just broken regarding who is going to be playing in the electro-centric Glade this June.
The Glade has long been Glastonbury’s go-to speck for consumption of bleeps and beats, and this year’s line-up illustrates just why.
The Spike stage will feature a whole host of well-known electronic acts. These include Rob da Bank, who will be playing his Purple Rave Prince tribute set, psychedelic electro from The Egg, and a set from snooker-player-turned-techno-DJ Steve Davis.
The Lovebullets stage plays host to some top underground acts, including Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, Barcelona superclub Elrow, Normski, and dubstep innovator Skream (who has now changed tack and moved on to techno).
If that isn’t enough to whet your appetite, then the main stage in the area, the Glade Stage, features performances from a number of world-renowned electronic acts, which include progressive house pioneers Sasha and Digweed, drum and bass kingpin Goldie, dubwise business from The Orb, and breaks act Layo and Bushwacka!
The Spaceport stage offers a cosmic array of acts also, with appearances from Dave Seaman, Mella Dee, Danny Howells, Stanton Warriors, Crawford, rave act Altern-8, and some schwengin’ bassline bizniz as Tumble Audio go head to head with Off Me Nut records.
If electronic music is your bag then you’ll undoubtedly be spending a hell of a lot of time down at The Glade at this year’s festival, and with a line-up like that you definitely can’t go wrong.
The Glade takes place 21 – 25 June at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset. For the full line-up, photos, videos and ticket information head over to our Glastonbury Festival page.
