The likes of Zip, Djrum, Kate Miller, Secretsundaze, Arkajo, Man Power, Voyeur and PBR Streetgang join an already unmissable bill of the most exciting names in electronic music, once again assembling in the stunning woodland location of North Wales.
Nixwax have joined forces with Frankfurt’s Traffic Records bringing with them Martyné, Bodin and Jacob. 2 Bad Mice add more bass to the barn with Mella Dee and Mark Archer and Not An Animal bring along Gatto Fritto and the elusive Frank Butters.

The updated Gottwood poster is now in our exclusive line-up poster calendar here!

Carl Cashman will be curating street art across the site, not to mention promoters Melodic Distraction, Abandoned Silence, Hidden and Resonate joining the Gottwood family. It will also be Berlin’s Renate’s 10th anniversary and with Peak & Swift leading the charge, expect celebrations aplenty.

Gottwood tickets are still available from their official website here. A Tier 5 ticket will run you just over £175 with booking fees.

Nestled in the picturesque, mystical woodlands of North Wales, Gottwood – a beacon of the UK electronic dance music scene and now embarking on its 9th year, is a truly intimate affair for music lovers.

Year after year, Gottwood’s loyal family following make the pilgrimage to what has been deemed as ‘the most beautiful festival in Britain’. From sensational breakthrough artists to accomplished and worldly trailblazers, everyone comes out in full force for this unmissable party.

Standing by their testament to bring together a collection of some of the finest selectors in the world, Gottwood welcomes a host of new and faithful returning acts including Avalon Emerson, Ben UFO, Rodriguez Jr, Dominik Eulberg, the multifaceted Paul Woolford and his genre hopping alias Special Request, plus Andrew Weatherall who’ll play twice across the weekend, with a special A Love From Outer Space (ALFOS) set.

Over the last three years Gottwood has taken the lawn stage from a DJ based affair to what is now one of the most forward thinking live stages on the festival circuit. Further affirming that status Gottwood have curated a perfectly balanced live bill which sees Romare, Rival Consoles, Dark Sky, Weval, Africane 808, Wolf Muller & Niklas Wandt, Tenderlonious & The 22archestra, Happy Meals, Febeuder and Ariwo all playing fully fledged live sets across the weekend.

Move D, who has played more sets at Gottwood than any other artist, returns along with the likes of Hunee, Palms Trax, Axel Boman, Felix Dickinson, Bufiman and Amsterdam’s master of off kilter and unpredictable party starting sets San Proper.

Gottwood have taken a stand against short sets with Manchester’s Mr Scruff signing up for a long extended performance on the picturesque Lawn Stage as well as Shed on the now infamous Trigon and of course their close Houghton Festival counterpart and man of the moment Craig Richards in the Walled Garden.

Margaret Dygas, Nicolas Lutz, Binh, Archie Hamilton, Enzo Siragusa, John Dimas, Job Jobse, Saoirse, and Sonja Moonear will all be leading with their stripped back minimal sounds and grassroots headsy approach to partying. Serial crate digger now record store owner Ruf Dug, Rhythm Sections Bradley Zero, Red Light Disco’s Orpheu The Wizard, Robert Jonson main man Ata, DJ Nomad the lauded collector of exotic rhythms from across Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean and Willow who got her first break at Gottwood after partying with Move D in a campsite afterparty will all also be playing.
