Imagine this; you’re rolling around on the mossy floor of a lush forest. You look around and a multitude of greens dazzle your mortal eyes. The smell of wild garlic fills your nostrils and as you gaze through the canopy above, a thought hits you. Holy Cow! You’re in Narnia! But not cold scary Narnia. Its awesome post defeat, ASLAN-TASTIC NARNIA!! Drum and bass blasts from a Funktion-One speaker stack higher than Jacks beanstalk, and Mr Tumnuss is having it, he is absolutely destroying the grassy dance floor!
Does this sound heavenly to you? If the answer is FUCK YEAH! Then may I suggest one of the most awe-inspiring festivals in existence?
Gottwood is a small and wholly independent electronic music and arts festival. Small in size but MASSIVE on awesomeness this party can be found vibrating deep within the Welsh woods. It’s the kind of place where forest fairies might live, and if they did you can bet your buns they’d been preparing themselves, mind, body and soul for some serious festivities this summer.
Over the past months the Gottwood team have been busy pulling together a line up which will, simply put, blow your tits off. Uniting club crews from around the UK, the bar has been raised for 2013. This includes, Wigflex, Futureboogie, Hypercolour, Louche, Tief, Jaunt, Hit&Run, Apogee and Nixwax.
This year the woods are alive with the sound of music. Expect trees that grow lampshades, bass so heavy it sends you into another dimension and light shows so glorious you’ll be seeing stars for a week.
