Early-bird Glade tickets go on sale

The following that even small festivals have has become a bit of a national obsession. Whilst the Glade Festival is a great event and has a great vibe, I still think that there is something wrong when festival tickets go on sale some nine months before the festival takes place.

I can understand the economic sense of it, festivals take a long time to put together, require lots of paper work and require a substantial investment. But there is part of me that thinks it’s like finding a supermarket starting to sell Christmas puddings and mince pies from April onwards.
