Preview: Gottwood

Location: Anglesey, Wales 

When: 7th – 10th June

On the 7th June Gottwood Festival returns to the mystical island of Anglesey for its 9th edition. Beginning life as a small, boutique festival, Gottwood has earnt a name for itself as one of the finest electronic festivals in the UK. Unlike other festivals, which have grown largely in size over the last few years, Gottwood’s organisers have kept their promise, ensuring that the festival remains a small-scale, intimate affair, preserving its enchanting quality.

So far, the line-up for 2018 is strong including renowned names such as Ben UFO, Andrew Weatherall (who will play two sets), Craig Richards, Move D, Sonja Moonear, Hunee, Nicolas Lutz and Palms Trax (see details of the full line-up below). In a similar fashion to previous years, the line-up does not fail to please, catering to a variety of tastes within electronic music. 

Aside from the music, Gottwood has been described by critics as one of the most ‘picturesque’ festivals, set in a Welsh woodland around a glistening lake. Each stage is beautifully curated, whether it be a DJ booth set inside a giant wooden owl or a secret walled garden, every stage is gloriously different from the next.  

As a festival, Gottwood is certainly not one to miss. In order to experience the unadulterated debauchery bag yourself a ticket here
