Glade Festival 2010 has canceled

The 2010 Glade Festival has been canceled due to a increased security costs and poor pre-sales.

The festival, which was set to take place July 15-19 at the
Matterley Bowl in Winchester.

An official statement on the festival’s website say:

*This year the requirements imposed upon us for policing, security and stewarding have been greatly increased.

To make matters worse the reluctance of the police to negotiate
in advance and deliberately delay any dialog with us has resulted
in our being unable to tie down a final costing for the event.

*This, along with unexpected legal fees associated with a last
minute license review, has radically increased the cost of the festival.

*Faced with what is already an expensive event to put on and
with these unexpected forced increases in security and police
costs as well as a level of advanced ticket sales that is below our
expectations we have no choice but to do the responsible thing
and cancel the event.

Ticket holders are being advised to refer to their point of purchase
for a full refund.
