Gottwood returns to the Welsh unknown this June
It’s fair to say Gottwood is really beginning to come into its own as one of the UK’s premier music and arts festivals. Returning to remote North-West Wales this June off the back of glowing reviews for GF ’15, the festival’s heady mixture of all-star lineup, considered arts and creative programming, and beautiful(-ly hedonistic) surroundings makes for a potent party at the height of what promises to be a glorious British summertime. Let’s hope we haven’t just jinxed it ay?
A quick glance at the lineup reads like a who’s who of those making waves in contemporary electronic music right now, but we’re gonna go right ahead and pick out a few that have peaked our interest: Perlon cult hero Zip, fan favourite and all-round top guy Hunee, punk Techno legend Andrew Weatherall, DC house maestros Beautiful Swimmers, cosmic disco cadet Felix Dickinson, and sultry analog-house whizkid Max Graef, who’ll be bringing the Max Graef Live Band to proceedings too – keep ’em peeled for a UE interview with Max himself in the build-up to June.
As much a treat for the eyes as the ears, Gottwood has also just announced a whole host of creative partners for this year’s edition, including trailblazing art agency Derelicht, Ruff Kutz – who’ll be reimagining the Wayne’s World garage in its full glory (dayum!) – film and distribution label Future Shorts, and Resident Advisor, who’ll be screening films from their popular RA Films catalogue. With London collective Behind This Wall also building a unique woodland cinema and restaurant front-centre on site, it’s clear Gottwood is once again gearing up for full-blown immersion – and we can’t flippin’ wait.
Still need convincing? Just take a look at the scenes from Gottwood 2015:
See you there X
