Gottwood Festival 2011 reveals first names


The newest UK underground dance music festival returns for its second year in an enchanting forest clearing in Anglesey, Wales. The four-day Gottwood Festival is an intimate event for 3,000 beat-lovers from Thursday, June 30 to Sunday, July 3.

Last year saw the likes of DJ Format, Max Cooper, David E Sugar, Jakwob and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs experiment with an eclectic mix of techno, deep house, dubstep, hip hop and drum and bass, and this year DJ Format is back alongside Max Cooper, as well as the likes of Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Lee Foss, Royalty, Zeds Dead, Round Table Knights and Dark Sky.

Incorporating a variety of diverse festival treats and with intricate attention to detail, Gottwood offers a truly unique and intimate festival experience worthy of its position in the Daily Telegraph’s Top 100 UK Festivals list. This summer promises to be bigger and better with a string of respected promotions adding their expertise to proceedings and a first wave of acts that includes acid house legend A Guy Called Gerald and a live set from Phil Kieran.

Newcomers to the festival circuit Stop Making Sense Festival (SMS), will be hosting a stage this year. For those who couldn’t get to Croatia last summer, SMS is one of the newest, 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.

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 bloggers and 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.

Gottwood 2011 promises to recreate the mind bending adult playground that made last year such a success. Tickets are on sale now priced £84. Go to www.gottwood.co.uk for the latest information and the get yours.
