“Sometimes there’s an event that punches a hole in the expected norm, Glas-Denbury does this in spades”
Deep in the depths of the beautiful Devon countryside, a little piece of magic is being cultivated. Of course we all know that magic runs through the heart of Devon in so many ways – with so many festivals and events, beautiful towns and villages, stunning scenery from the moors to the sea. We know there are people, especially in Devon, who have a vision of how the world could be a kinder, happier, safer place. Glas-Denbury is magic created by this kind of people, who have a passion for others and life. Whether you are a seasoned festival addict or are just dipping your toes in the festival scene Glas-Denbury has something for everyone! We may not be the biggest festival out there but we like it just as it is – comfortable, safe, happy, inspirational and the team who run it have the biggest hearts and the most passion about what they are creating for you. A cross between a traditional Devon village fayre and a nod to the family friendly festivals of yesteryear; uncommercialised, small and personal. Glas-Denbury is the vision of a group of friends who have created and continue to create and develop with a unequivocal passion, a small, wonderful small, wonderful,safe, happy, family friendly music festival in the most beautiful South Devon setting. Glas-Denbury is about community, local, about collaboration and giving people a chance, about family, kindness and about Devon, but above all about people coming together and creating a wonderful place to nourish our souls and create some smiles. So why not take a trip to our lovely part of the world, come and dance in the daisies, delight in the magic of Glas-Denbury and enjoy a weekend of colour, happiness, music & arts and make some new friends along the way!
