Gottwood 2015 was one of our absolute Summer highlights - and 2016 looks set to top it.

Quickly gaining a reputation as one of the best small festivals in the UK, Gottwood boasts the perfect combination of an outstanding, well curated line-up and a jaw-droppingly beautiful setting - a seemingly simple recipe that is all too often botched at the hands of lazy programmers and money hungry promoters.

Next June, the festival is set to return to its secluded corner of North West Wales - an enchanted patch of ancient woodland, huddled against a wild stretch of the Irish Sea, to be exact - bringing an onslaught of word-class DJs and electronic acts along for the party:
