Gottwood Festival Preview
Taking place in a now infamous Welsh forest location, Gottwood boasts a mystical fairytale-like setting. Entering its sixth year, the Gottwood team are excited to be bringing the most established and forward thinking line-up to date to their wholly independent, electronic music based festival.
I haven’t had the pleasure of attending Gottwood yet, however a friend – Alex Hughes, had this to say:
“Great music, great crowd. They put the effort in making the site look amazing with the added bonus of it being in the woods. They’re keeping the capacity at 5000 now which was worked really well last year, didn’t feel too busy. Just a proper good small festival in the woods.”.
This is what attracts me to Gottwood. With the ever-expanding festivals, hour-long queues to bars / loos, it seems they are starting to forget why people decide to go and live in mud for days – the music. And oh do Gottwood crew deliver on that:
Honestly haven’t been this excited for a small festival in years. See you in a forest somewhere in Wales in June!
