The Global Gathering UK weekend is upon us, a UK festival that has broken conventions and only delivered some of the most cutting edge and forward thinking electronic music festival in the country. So much so, that the festival has been compared to Reading and Glastonbury in terms of quality.
The Sherp compiled a constructive list of things you SHOULD know about Global Gathering.
4. Back in 2013 the festival launched a ‘Secret Stage’ called ‘The Bunker’
This secret on-site location featured a massive line-up and will required ravers to go on a treasure hunt-esque search for the stage.
9. The all new EDM arena, The Hangar is apparently the biggest structure on site at the festival and able to house a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet.
10. GlobalGathering has provided some of the most interesting riders over the years including inflatable dinghies, cakes to throw at the audience, sandwiches cut into zoo animals and even a parachuting hamster!
11. Global Takeover – GlobalGathering has expanded to several editions around the world with festivals previously hosted in America, Australia, South Korea, Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and Poland.
Over 190 acts appear at the festival across the weekend and hosted every major electronic music artist over the past 14 years including Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Daft Punk, The Prodigy, Hardwell, Carl Cox, Eric Prydz, David Guetta and Alesso.
