Global Gathering 2007 - The Lowdown!

Reported by Olly @ Trackitdown on March 8, 2007

Friday 27TH - Saturday 28TH July 2007

Long Marston Airfield, near Stratford Upon Avon

After selling out every year since the launch in 2000, Global Gathering has become the world’s undisputed heavyweight champion of dance festivals.  In 2006, a record breaking 75,000 revellers congregated at the renowned Long Marston Airfield over 2 days, creating the biggest dance and live music weekender on the planet, ever.

Once again BBC Radio 1 will support the event with shows broadcast live to the nation from the Radio 1 main stage and from the site across the weekend.

Global Gathering 2007 promises a super-sized combo of the finest DJ talent on earth, great live acts, state-of-the-art sound systems and amusement attractions that will allow guests to intoxicate themselves on immoral amounts of fun and aural adventure.

Every year, the organisers look to exceed all expectations. This summer, Global Gathering will offer luxury camping on a campsite area large enough to fit forty football pitches. It will also feature hot showers and an outdoor cinema. For those music fans who are less familiar with the nylon structures, a ticket option is available that offers a ready erected tent and a concierge butler service; you can even order crates of cold beer to be delivered to your tent on arrival!

The musical output will cover the spectrum of dance from US House to euphoric trance and pumping drum and bass. New for ‘07 are three Ibiza-inspired terraces. Hosted by some of the most popular names in dance including Circo Loco, Sundissential and Mixmag, these outdoor sound systems will create a mini festival within a festival. Roger Sanchez’s, Release Yourself arena also makes a debut. Radio 1 return again along with all the most popular arenas, such as Global, Godskitchen, Electric and Radio 1’s Essential Selection.

Global Gathering is a rite of passage for every party enthusiast looking for a once in a lifetime musical experience, where people come together from all over the world to celebrate life and to enjoy an amazing experience.

Global Gathering has also secured SPUTNIK VODKA as headline sponsor for the festival: 

Sputnik Vodka, unlike the majority of its competitors, is one of the few genuine Russian Vodkas available in the West. The authentic recipe was selected by some of Russia's greatest vodka distillers to mark the pioneering launch of the Sputnik satellite in the late fifties. Sputnik Vodka is premium vodka made from the finest Russian winter grain to an authentic age old recipe and is triple distilled to create a pure 40% vodka. Sputnik Vodka recently won a bronze award for quality at the International Spirit Challenge 2004.
