Returning to its lush and enchanting deep forest location (or as DJ Mag penned: the "magically decorated rave forest") in idyllic Anglesey, Gottwood is the festival for the musically experimental and open-minded. Serving up the most exciting talent from across the electronic music spectrum, last year saw the likes of Jamie XX, Lee Foss, Max Cooper, Midland, The Correspondents, Round Table Knights (and many more) experiment with an eclectic mix of the best of all genres of electronic dance music, mashing house, techno, drum & bass, dubstep, hip-hop, garage and more, and feeding it to the eager ears of over a thousand Gottwood Festival goers. And there's more Gottwood have promised a secret mystery guest this year that will not disappoint!
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. Gottwood 2011 further cemented it as the electronic music festival not to be missed, and featured in The Sunday Times "Definitive Guide to the 100 Best Music Festivals".
Gottwood's success in its sophomore year has attracted some of the UK's finest promoters, including Tief, Krankbrother, Louche, Hypercolour, We Are Your Friends, Finger Lickin' Management, White Mink, Hit & Run, Absentminds, idiosync, & Pelski.
This year also sees Gottwood unlocking the gates to two previously inaccessible areas: a luscious walled garden to tantalise your optic nerves and most excitingly, the swathing lakes on the site will now be opened for a very special Sunday event… cue bikini-clad ravers and bombing galore. Gottwood veterans will recall the gorgeous coastlines within a 15 minute walk that earned the North Wales coast Lonely Planet's "Greatest Region on Earth 2012" accolade.
Early bird tickets have already run out, so attendees will have to move quickly as capacity has been limited to just 1500 this year to keep the intimacy that helped to make the first two years such a success.
If you can't wait until June, Gottwood will host a very special night at second home Basing House on Friday 23rd March with the awesome Fantastic Mr Fox, Arkist & Medlam heading the bill.
