Global Gathering 2011

Posted on 06 May 2011 by Mizzle

It’s now less than 3 months till Global Gathering 2011! Held at Long Marston Airfield, Stratford-Upon-Avon, it is the annual dance music festival by Angel Music Group, just in case you didn’t know already. It will be taking place on Friday 29th – Saturday 30th July. DJs normally finish around 6am on Sunday, but if you’re camping the party normally carries on into the late morning, then the reality dawns on everyone that they actually have to travel home at some point that day!

In the last 3 years of going to Global I have had some memorable times. In 2009 the wrist bands even said Globai instead of Global! The First Year I went (2008) Godskitchen took place in the biggest marquee in Europe and featured what I and others thought were the most amazing LED screens ever seen. On top of the screens, they looked like a Christmas tree turned upside down. The stunning laser show was jaw dropping.

In my opinion this year promises to be even bigger and better. Okay, The Prodigy isn’t in the line up but there are some amazing acts which I just can’t wait to see. On the main stage again this year, we will be seeing Jaguar Skills. Labrinth will be joining the likes of the headliners, Tinie Tempah & Pendulum, and performing live.

Then as usual you have the marquee’s such as ‘Global’ were you can see the likes of Eric Pryds, Sasha, Underword (live) and Joris Voorn. Then in ‘Hospitality’ you’ll also get to see Andy C and High Contrast. Performing in ‘Toolroom Knights’ you’ll discover Fedde Le Grand, Michael Woods with special guest Benny Benassi. Enlightening us to another enchanting year in ‘Rinse’ Skream & Benga, Zinc and Boy Better know. The creme dela creme of all acts and the one that I’m looking forward to the most in marquee ‘Metropolis’ is …. Chase & Status! WOW – these guys were AMAZING last year! If you have never been to Global before, attend just to see Chase & Status live. Last year was their first year performing live and even they called it ‘An Amazing Experience.’ If this isn’t enough to tempt you, you’ll also get to witness performances from Nero, Caspa & Rod Azlan, Sub Focus & Skrillex.

So after naming just a few, will you be one of the 50,000 attending this year?
