Welcome to Glassetonbury!
Glasse Factory is excited to host a tournament designed to showcase several up-and-coming acts we’re excited about, with the winning band receiving a prize package that includes stage time at this year’s Deep Tropics! The tournament, which we’re calling Glasse-tonbury, will feature artists that submit. Their performances will have been reviewed by a collaborative panel made up of Glasse Factory and, for this edition, Deep Tropics team members, and the matchups will be voted on by you. For each matchup, there will be a link to each performance, a brief description of the songs/artists, and a link to a poll where you can cast your vote.
About Deep Tropics
Deep Tropics is produced by forward-thinking, dance music enthusiasts at Full Circle Presents. The creative site and stage design is led by art director, Aaron Martin and will take the energy to stratospheric levels. The one-of-a-kind amphitheater in the park ensures every viewpoint is perfect with a beautiful downtown skyline view in the backdrop. Intricate lasers, choreographed LED, moving lights, and art installs will illuminate the park. The venue is less than a mile from auxiliary party locations, downtown Nashville, and some of the city’s coolest districts.
Deep Tropics’ mission is to be the greenest festival in the United States. They are a climate positive event which simply means we create more energy than we use. These efforts are fueled by our non-profit organization Deep Culture, Inc which exists to curate experiences that activate transformation of self, community, and planet. In 2021, 79% of festival waste was prevented from entering the landfill. The proceeds from Green Disco Eco-Bands allowed us to plant 59,000+ trees in Kenya and help offset our carbon footprint. Many of Deep Tropics’ art projects are created from sustainable materials such as hempcrete & aircrete. Additionally, Deep Tropics has a zero waste initiative to ensure everything is either recyclable, compostable, or re-usable. Regenerative design is at the forefront of every aspect of the festival.
Last round featured nothing but close matchups, and we’re on to the Final Four of this year’s Glassetonbury! While we have to say goodbye to some excellent artists, the audience has spoken. Check out who you have sent to the Final Four of Glassetonbury 2023! Only one of these artists gets the coveted spot at Deep Tropics, and we can’t wait to see who has what it takes!
