There have been some changes at Gottwood Festival this year, but one of the most exciting announcements is that there will be two open-air stages running until 4am – in a similar fashion to the first ever Gottwood. The Boxford Caravan, as well as a new woodland stage will run until the twilight hours, with surround sound four-point Funktion One systems helping to bring the noise!

Gottwood strives to help and provide a promotional platform for artists. This year look out for The Bestiary building bringing larger-than-life interactive animal installations made from salvaged wood; Mr Kobo returns to paint a modern-day mural. Venture out to see the oversized live oil painting and graffiti from the uber-talented and Gottwood Caravan creator Technicolour Moon, as well as interactive tree painting, which is set to be an amazing sight to see.
