Riding the end of the festival season like a wave that’s quickly dissipating, we haven’t got much ahead of us but months of free-floating through work and winter. We will eventually get to the distant shores of the summer to come, in the meantime we drift through the months dealing with the flotsam of daily tasks. Don’t despair, we’ve caught site of something on that promising shore: Gottwood Festival have announced the release of limited super early bird tickets.
What was definitely the Animaux crew’s best festival of 2015 have plotted a course for their return on the 9th of June 2016. Although no line-up has been hinted at as of yet the Gottwood crew has instead detailed the expansion of their close-knit family of promoters. These include the Bristol based label Banoffee Pies and London’s highly regarded party organisers: Secretsundaze.
Find a full list of promoters below.
For those who didn’t attend this year, you missed out on some of the best names in electronic music: Panorama bar regulars Hunee and Margaret Dygas, the must see Ben UFO, everyone’s favourite Motor City Drum Ensemble and the list goes on and on (no really). All of this showcased on a beautiful estate with dozens of intimate chill-spaces and clusters of art dotted around, a place where you can’t help but make new friends and have a great time.
With more people getting involved this year we, here at Animaux, can only assume the next instalment will showcase even bigger acts while, of course, maintaining the Gottwood promise of keeping it small and personal.
While I was writing this article the early birds sold out. That’s how good this festival is, and yes it’s absolutely worth paying the full price.
We also wrote an article on Why you should go to Gottwood Festival which I think captures the spirit of the woods well.
We’ll see you there!
