Coming back with another edition of their acclaimed weekender, Gottwood Festival returns on 8th June with a boundary pushing line-up of eclectic sounds from around the world. With artists from as far afield as Toronto and as close to home as Bangor, the Festival’s programme offers campers a melting-pot of musical delights to sink their teeth into.
With previous Melodic Distraction guest, Jayda G, recently receiving the honour of a main stage billing at the forthcoming Dekmantel Festival, it is refreshing to see her tipped to play at the more intimate, woodland setting that Gottwood provides. Alongside her will be previous Melodic Distraction guest Toby O’Connor and our in-house residents, Nick & Nath.
The festival also boasts a DJ line-up that will seldom be found elsewhere this summer, with Gottwood regulars the likes of Move D, Roman Flugel, Crazy P Soundsystem and Tenderlonious all in attendance.
What’s most exciting about this year’s instalment of the Anglesey-based festival is its live programme. With sun-soaked Aussie house melodies likely to come courtesy of a Harvey Sutherland & Bermuda live set and the Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra on hand to provide some cosmic West-African rhythms, this year’s Gottwood is bound to offer dancers a galaxy of musical sights and sounds to enjoy.
Tickets are now onto their penultimate release over on Resident Advisor…
