Gottwood Presents 001 – Dj Format by Gottwood

In its second year set in an enchanting forest clearing in Anglesey, Gottwood is a festival for the musically attuned and open-minded. Serving up some of the most exciting talent from across the electronic music spectrum, last year saw talent in the form of David E Sugar, Jakwob and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs experiment with an eclectic mix of techno, deep house, dubstep and drum n bass, all to the eager ears of almost one thousand Gottwood Festival goers.

With last year’s early bird tickets selling out just hours after release, Gottwood Festival 2010 effortlessly established itself as the leading underground electronic music festival in the North of England and Wales. The festival organisers pride themselves on incorporating a variety of diverse festival treats and with intricate attention to detail to offer a truly unique and intimate festival experience worthy of its position in the Daily Telegraph’s Top 100 UK Festivals list. 2011 however, promises to be bigger and better.

In addition to previous mesmerising stages, new-comers to the festival circuit; Stop Making Sense Festival (SMS), will be hosting a stage at Gottwood this year. For those who couldn’t get to Croatia last summer, SMS is one of the freshest international music festivals, showcasing top quality dance music and live acts. Nominated for Best New Festival in the European Festival Awards last year, SMS is now in its second year and will be hosting some of the most exciting dance acts over the course of the weekend. Also taking control of Gottwood stages in 2011 will be Berlin-based promoters Klangsucht, sure to recreate their infamous party atmosphere, whilst Corsica Studios’ Trouble Vision is back for a second year, bringing everything from dubstep to disco!

Guaranteeing an array of national and international talent, Gottwood will be introducing some new faces at 2011’s festival. Promising to set the techno scene alight are newcomers Eat Your Brains, who will be tearing into the infamous Igloo on Friday night. Likewise, fellow newbies Louche – the cult status Leeds and London club night – will play host to a special, deeply nostalgic Sunday morning in the woods.

Keen not to forget the dedicated resident artists, Gottwood will also be welcoming back esteemed party starters Jackmode and You Can Call Me Pelski, who will be joining forces once again to create a sound wave of tribal tech-house and sample crazy beats.

In response to the high demand for tickets, all tickets will go on sale in January compared to the 750 that were hastily snapped up last year. Early bird tickets are £70 plus booking fee and the standard ticket price is £80 plus booking fee.

A festival like no other, Gottwood 2011 promises to recreate the mind bending adult playground that made last year such a success… Get yourselves there!
