After months of grey skies, impressive storms and cosy nights in, it’s time to start preparing for warmer weather and golden evenings. Everybody’s favourite season is just around the corner so dig out your sequins, dust off your shades and get ready for one of the UK’s most beautiful festivals – Gottwood.
Festival goers will descend on Anglesey on the 11th June for 3 days and 4 nights of the best electronic music from all over the world. Tech-House staple Adam Shelton switched up his sound and with his new alias A-Future is set to bring the festival some darker electro beats, whilst fans of sub bass will be provided for by 2 Bad Mice, Sully and Etch.
Kicking off their second decade, the team behind the festival are providing us grateful punters with a line-up jam-packed with old favourites and new additions. The beloved Carreglwyd Estate woods will once again be awakened from hibernation by the likes of Calibre, Helena Hauff, DJ Tennis and plenty more household names that have made Gottwood the iconic festival it is today. Joined by fresh faces Tech Support, Anz, GiGi FM they’ll be putting their own stamp on this unique forest dance floor.
Part of Gottwood’s appeal is its remoteness; you can escape everyday life and find a little haven in the Welsh countryside. There’s no angry voices, there’s hardly ever a queue for the bar and people don’t shove past you to get to the front of the crowd. It’s a party full of friendly people, unique sounds and plenty of time to relax.
A new decade has brought a new chapter for Gottwood but organisers are still aiming to please everyone. There will be lots of tasty veggie, vegan and meat based meals to keep your energy levels up, refreshing cocktails and pints can be bought from the bar and campers are welcome to bring their own drinks for the campsite.
For those unfamiliar with the festival, it’s not somewhere you’re going to be bored. Whether you fancy a stroll through the forest, a lie down by the lake or a bit of retail therapy at the amazing festival shops – there’s so many things to do, people to meet and connections to be made.
Over the years, this boutique festival has gone from strength to strength, each year with a line up so strong and varied there’s no chance you won’t love something. Gottwood itself is one of the most idyllic locations for a festival, and with so much care and pride taken by the owners and party goers alike, it remains an intimate and magical experience for all.
Pack your bags some wellies, and prepare yourself for a long old drive through breathtaking
r the journey through the moody Welsh countryside to this little haven.
