Deep in the Anglesey forest, lies Gottwood Festival, a festival where bonds between people are strong, and there is a palpable sense of purpose on everyone's mind. With a determined philosophy to put to rights all that is wrong with current festivals, Gottwood aims to retrace the routes of modern day events, and give power back to the people, and most importantly, to get people raving again.
With a more balanced musical, visual, and cultural festival on offer, loads of spontaneity, a safer environment, and, above all, a unique experience, Gottwood Festival delivers in spades where most festivals fail.
With the organisers regularly spending an awfully long time curating the lineup, to ensure that festival goers are treated to a diverse, electrifying lineup of risings underground stars, as well as the more established on the scene. Expect a genre bending, mind altering, roller-coaster ride through varying styles of music, providing one hell of a memorable trip.
This boutique, independent festival provides a truly unique, alternate reality to the vast majority of other festivals. Its beautifully situated location in the heart of Welsh woodland is an amazing backdrop to a festival crammed with the best underground electronic music you’re likely to witness live this year.
Gottwood really is a special festival, may the fairytale long continue.
