In its second year set in an enchanting forest clearing in Anglesey, Gottwood is a festival for the musically experimental and open-minded. With early bird tickets already sold out, this year’s festival will be serving up some of the most exciting talent from across the electronic music spectrum. Last year saw the likes of DJ Format, Max Cooper, David E Sugar, Jakwob and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs experiment with an eclectic mix of techno, deep house, dubstep, hip hop and drum and bass, all to the eager ears of almost one thousand Gottwood Festival goers.

With last year’s early bird tickets also selling out just hours after release, Gottwood Festival 2010 effortlessly established itself as the leading underground electronic music festival in the North of England and Wales. Incorporating a variety of diverse festival treats and with intricate attention to detail, Gottwood offers a truly unique and intimate festival experience worthy of its position in the Daily Telegraph’s Top 100 UK Festivals list. 2011 however, promises to be bigger and better.

In addition to last year’s mesmerising stages, newcomers to the festival circuit Stop Making Sense Festival (SMS), will be hosting a stage at Gottwood this year. For those who couldn’t get to Croatia last summer, SMS is the newest, freshest international music festival, showcasing top quality dance music and live acts. Nominated for Best New Festival in the European Festival Awards last year, SMS is now in its second year and will be hosting some of the most exciting dance acts over the course of the weekend. Also taking control of Gottwood stages in 2011 will be Berlin-based promoters Klangsucht, sure to recreate their infamous party atmosphere, whilst Corsica Studios’ Trouble Vision is back for a second year, bringing everything from dubstep to disco.

Guaranteeing an array of local and international talent, Gottwood will be introducing some new faces at 2011’s festival. Promising to set the techno scene alight are newcomers Eat Your Brains, who will be tearing into the infamous Igloo on Friday night. Likewise, fellow newbies Louche – the cult-status Leeds and London club night – will play host to a special, deeply nostalgic Sunday morning in the woods.

Keen not to forget the dedicated resident artists, Gottwood will also be welcoming back esteemed bloggers and party starters Jackmode and You Can Call Me Pelski, who will be joining forces once again to create a sound wave of tribal tech-house and sample-crazy beats.

A festival like no other, Gottwood 2011 promises to recreate the mind bending adult playground that made last year such a success. In response to the high demand for tickets, all tickets went on sale in January compared to the 750 that were hastily snapped up last year. Gottwood promises to be the perfect weekend away from the constraints of reality. If only we never had to return…
