ALONGSIDE THE WORLD’S BEST DJS PAUL VAN DYK, CARL COX
ERICK MORILLO & ARMIN VAN BUUREN
Friday 27TH - Saturday 28TH July 2007
Long Marston Airfield, Stratford Upon Avon
Basement Jaxx and Faithless will headline Global Gathering, the world’s biggest dance festival, joining a line up that features the greatest DJs on the planet. 50,000 people are once again expected to congregate at the Long Marston Airfield on the 27th and 28th July to soak up the incredible atmosphere created by the likes of Paul van Dyk, Carl Cox, Erick Morillo and Armin Van Buuren who will deliver life-changing sets from the 16 state-of-the-art arenas and stages.
The festival’s reputation has been built on its commitment to quality and each year the organisers outdo themselves. The bill sees the return of firm favourites Paul Oakenfold; Sasha; Ferry Corsten; Roger Sanchez and 2ManyDJs who are guaranteed to roadblock their arenas.
Once again Radio 1 will host the main stage and broadcast live from the event throughout the entire weekend with Pete Tong and Judge Jules who will broadcast his set live from the Godskitchen Arena. Radio 1's Grooverider, Fabio, Dave Pearce and Annie Mac will also appear across the weekend.
The station will bring its listeners unprecedented coverage including a specially extended Essential Mix.
New for Summer 07:
Calvin Harris who’s been waiting since the 80’s to perform live at Global Gathering
Armand van Helden who will exclusively deliver one of his infamous festival mash ups
Sven Väth from Germany’s temple of Techno, The Cocoon Club
Feddé Le Grand whose records dominate clubs and charts alike
Goldie who returns after a three year hiatus to the Drum & Bass Arena
Steve Angello & Sebastian Ingrosso, the DJ duo behind Tong’s Essential Miami tune
New Young Pony Club who’s look and music is straight out of the 80’s Studio 54
Francois Kevorkian the house music purist who’s renowned dedication to high quality sound is proof of how exceptional the Global Gathering sound systems are

Also new for 07 are the three Ibiza-inspired terraces each programmed by well known clubbing brands: The Mixmag Terrace will be headlined by The Klaxons who will be swapping instruments for record decks; Polysexual has Anne Savage and guests and Circo Loco will bring over their popular Ibiza residents from DC10.
Accommodation for this year’s Global Gathering will be better than ever. The newly expanded campsite is large enough to fit 40 football pitches and includes hot showers and an outdoor cinema. Those wanting the lap of luxury can take advantage of the newly introduced ticket range - Cloud 9. These packages include VIP tickets, a Global Gathering goodie bag and a souvenir programme. Guests will be able to park their cars next to their tents and enjoy an exclusive area away from the main campsite. ‘Seventh Heaven’ hotel packages are also on offer that include free transfers to and from the event.
Options for the Cloud 9 packages include:
Kip ‘n’ Kit Boulevard includes a fully equipped tent that’s pitched ready for arrival and can be taken away afterwards
Belle Pad Tents – large enough for a group of at least four friends, pitched and fully equipped
Pod Pads – cute and colourful, these little wooden festival homes come complete with airbeds, sleeping bags, lights and a lockable door
Camper vans and caravans are also welcome and will be parked in Cloud Nine with easy access to electricity links
Full details and ticket prices are at the end of this release. Every year since it’s launch, Global Gathering has sold out.

Basement Jaxx say: "We're looking forward to spending a day in the company of the sun-kissed ravers of Stratford Upon Avon.
Sister Bliss of Faithless says “We’re chuffed to be playing this years Global Gathering knowing how rocking it was to DJ there a couple of years ago, it’s great for the whole band to be invited to that’s shaping up to be the dance event of the summer”

Global Gathering has also secured SPUTNIK VODKA as headline sponsor for the festival:
Sputnik Vodka, unlike the majority of its competitors, is one of the few genuine Russian Vodkas available in the West. The authentic recipe was selected by some of Russia's greatest vodka distillers to mark the pioneering launch of the Sputnik satellite in the late fifties. Sputnik Vodka is premium vodka made from the finest Russian winter grain to an authentic age old recipe and is triple distilled to create a pure 40% vodka. Sputnik Vodka recently won a bronze award for quality at the International Spirit Challenge 2004.
