Held on the island of Anglesey, Wales, Gottwood Festival is far from any major city. However, as their website points out, “that’s all part of the appeal”. This year from June 11th to 14th, the boutique festival offers an escape from real life, and those attending can expect a mystical experience in the middle of the woods.

What happens at this remote location is part of Gottwood’s legacy. Each year, organizers craft a precise arrangement of audiovisual attractions. Visitors are engulfed in screens, sculptures, and art installations – all strung together with utmost care. There is no main stage, and attractions have ranged from secret Walled Garden venues to Jungle Book artwork. Somehow there’s a pattern to all the chaos, and frequent festies will find the environment familiar with a creative twist. To top it all off, Gottwood is eco-friendly and independent of corporate sponsors.

 

 

The festival doesn’t just boast a great environment, though. This year’s lineup pulls from the cutting edge of UK electronic music, ranging from dark drum & bass to disco house to soul. Andrew Ashong, 2 Bad Mice, and Maxxi Soundsystem are among the names to grace this year’s list. These artists are represented by heavy hitting labels like Hypercolour, Sounds of the Universe, and Louche. Judging by previous years, these collectives produce great energy, even in the craziest of spaces.

For a taste of past years, check out “Gottwax”, an output featuring the festival’s most impressive tracks. Showcasing artists like BEHR and Jascha Hagen, Gottwax releases EPs and singles from the festival’s best of the best.
If you’re a festival lover who wants to try something different, you won’t want to miss this year’s Gottwood Festival. On the other hand, if you’re new and interested in a beautiful experience, this could also be for you. From the arranged art to the stunning environment, Gottwood is its own magical world. They wouldn’t have it any other way.
