THUMP had a great time at Gottwood last year, like, a really great time. As far as we are concerned, the Anglesey festival, hidden in woodland next to the coast of Wales, is pretty much the best looking fun you can have all summer. Think perfect sunsets filtered through a canopy of trees and DJ sets from the corners of a deep green lakes and you might be getting close. With that memory still fresh in our minds, you can understand how excited we were when Gottwood began announcing their acts for next year's festival.
The bill is looking even bigger and even stronger than last year, as the festival's growing reputation is clearly rubbing off on who they book. 2016 will a returning Ben UFO and Craig Richards B2B alongside Nick Höppner, Joy Orbison, and a delicious sounding Andrew Weatherall B2B with Roman Flügel. And that is literally just scraping the surface, check out the full bill below.
