Gottwood are proud to announce a new set of artists who will join the likes of Mr. G, Joy Orbison, Move D, DJ Deep, Craig Richards, Ben UFO, Roman Flügel, Sonja Moonear, Andrew Weatherall, Zip and many more in their magical Welsh forest this June.
Joining the Gottwood Family will be the Barcelona based Hivern Discs Label owner John Talabot,known for his slow moving and ebullient house. Alongside John Talabot, Gottwood welcomes the return of Rush Hour records Hunee, a Gottwood favourite following an epic set in the Gottwood Forest during the 2015 event.
Gottwood are also excited to announce rising star John Dimas, who will bring his stripped back avante-garde house and techno sound to a Gottwood stage, whilst hotly tipped Manchester grime collective LEVELZ take over an intimate corner of the welsh woodland.
Ensuring all musical bases are covered jazz, funk and fusion band The Expansions, who are best known as Andrew Ashongs session band, will play Live on the Lawn Stage as will the enthused raw groove, funk and hip-hop sounds of The Max Graef Band and the afro edit sounds of Sheffield's Al Zander aka Lodger.
Futureboogie's Maxxi Soundsystem, twin duo The Menendez Brothers and One Records head honcho Subb-An will be bringing more up front party attitude to the forest, along with the well respected Leicester based club night and label collective City Fly. Manchester based crowd-loving crate-digger Neil Diablo will also be onboard, playing solo and also alongside Crazy P original member Jim Baron as their Ron & Neil collaboration.
Alongside new media partners, Stamp The Wax, and friends of the festival Ruf Dug, Gottwood are set to create a new space at the festival aptly named Ruffys Lab. Artistically curated by Ruf Dug himself, expect daytime interviews, product showcases, 80's video games and evening house parties with take overs from Ruf Kutz, Stamp The Wax and Dream Catalogue.
