Glas-Denbury Festival returns in 2018, for it’s bespoke festival located in picturesque Devonshire.
Glas-Denbury was born in 2013, after a music fundraising event for the local school in Denbury the year before, this locally sourced festival was created by a one woman team who knew exactly what kind of festival the local area needed, created for everyone; Glas-Denbury showcases the incredible talent the South West produces in everything from the arts; Music, Poetry, Entertainment, to the food, crafts, capability of people and so much more, this festival is a “platform for passion” and gives opportunity to as many people, organisations and companies across the south as possible.
As a one day festival Glasdenbury brings together a collection of exceptional artists to give audiences a taste of the very best folk music around in a reasonably short space of time.
The festival has a really relaxed atmosphere – a happy mixture of local village fete themes and the full on festival experience, the festival also has a wide range of creative craftspeople, inspiring workshop leaders and culinary wizards for enriching the festival experience.
The dedicated food stallholders who bring the festival site alive with colour, creativity and imagination, showing the difference it makes when care and passion drive the making of delicious dishes or the crafting of handmade foods.
The festival is committed to bringing a wide collection of music genres from acoustic driven rock & roll to Chap-Hop, delicate heart felt music to “rowdy” jump jive bands. Find stages with full on Disco beats from the 70s, 80s and 90s to others with cerebral vocals, tricksy horn licks with huge synths and earthy rhythms. Or perhaps off beat vibes made for moving the feet or ska, dub and swing.
