The History of Global Gathering Festival
Global Gathering is an annual dance music festival by Angel Music Group, the company behind Gods kitchen, and is a key player in the international festival market. 10 festivals in countries such as Ukraine, Poland, Turkey, Russia, Belarus, Australia and the UK feature leading electronica artists from across the globe
The festival has been running since 2001 and the concept came about following an unprecedented interest in the opening of Angel Music Group’s new club Code (now renamed Air) the home of Gods kitchen, the organisers recognised that there was a room to expand dancec music from clubs to the traditional outdoor music festival venues. This decision has proved to be extremely successful with dance music fans, with several thousand attending the annual concerts
On March 18, 2006, Global Gathering made its debut appearance outside of the United Kingdom when the festival travelled to Miami, Florida. The festival broadened its musical horizons in the American market to include acts such as Nine Inch Nails, Coheed and Cambria, Avenged Sevenfold, Deep Dish, Adam Freeland, Sasha, John Digweed, and many more dance and rock artists. Since then, the festival has expanded worldwide, with the 2008 season including shows in Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Turkey, Australia, and Malaysia.
A line up of some of the world’s most recognised DJs and live acts regularly feature on the bill, attracting large audiences in many of the countries that plays host to the festival.
Global Gathering in the UK has become one of most popular electronic music festivals and is always held on the last weekend in July. It has established itself as a major UK dance festival since it began in 2001 and has won the award for Best UK Festival for the last two years running in the DJ magazine awards and is now seen as the industry forerunner for worldwide electronic festivals.
Every year so far in the festival’s history, it has been held at Long Marston Airfield in Stratford-upon-Avon over the course of a Saturday and Sunday weekend. It provides entertainment from a range of electronic genres including live acts, house, trance and dubstep. Over the course of it’s existence, the festival has grown to play host to over one hundred acts on sixteen stages.
In 2009, Global Gathering made appearances around the world, in Poland, Belarus, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia, South Korea and Australia
