The solstice weekend in June will be appropriately filled with stunning displays, excellent music and thrilling celebration as this independent, boutique festival emerges once again.
Gottwood may seem like a secretive festival, hidden away in the magical setting of Anglesey’s woodland but it is a hugely popular gathering of all things electro. If you love electronic music festivals Gottwood is the place to be this summer.
Over the 19th to 22nd of June expect bespoke decors, the best line up from the electro music scene and breath-taking scenery.
This year’s festival theme has finally been revealed! Fans of the festival have been waiting in anticipation to see how the festival will transform their surroundings this year. For 2014 the theme will be ‘Jungle’ so get ready to be inspired.
Every year Gottwood bring us a fantastic, different theme to set our imaginations wild. For those who have missed out and never had the pleasure of attending the festival you should explore Gottwood’s themed history: In 2010 we had the birth of Gottwood with the ‘Woodland Creatures’ theme, followed by ‘Tribal’ in 2011, ‘the Summer of Love’ in 2012 and last year was the most incredible yet with ‘the Wild Things’. The Jungle theme will hopefully live up to the hype and once again bring a unique and fabulous atmosphere to this unusual and wonderful festival.
This year’s line-up is shaping up to be an outstanding selection of electro talent with acts such as Appleblim, Avatism, Calibre, Dense & Pika, Jay Shepheard, Session Victim, Pedestrian, Wolf Music and many more of the best electro performers and DJs.
Come along and enjoy the DJ competition, amazing acts, remarkable atmosphere, food, art and scenery. Tickets are on sale now and there is not long left to wait so hurry and book your place at one of the best music festivals in North Wales.
Gottwood takes place in the countryside near Holyhead in Anglesey and gates open at midday on Thursday 19th June. Music will begin at 4pm and takes places from 9am-4pm on Friday and Saturday and ends at 11pm on Sunday with the campsite closing midday Monday 23rd June. You will find the entrance to the festival near the little village of Llanfaethlu.
Gottwood prides itself on a strict green friendly policy so please try to respect the woods and settings of the festival.
One of the best things about this festival is its remote and beautiful location so if you are looking for affordable accommodation nearby you should check out St David’s Holiday Park Anglesey Camping Facilities.
