Global Gathering is the largest electronic camping weekender in the world attracting 55,000 dance and live music fans for a weekend of pure and unadulterated good times. Taking place at the Long Marston Airfield in Stratford Upon Avon on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th July 2008, the line-up features live performances from:

Kanye West - exclusive to Global Gathering, the hip hop star will present his utterly electric, totally unmissable Glow in the Dark show, complete with a mammoth lighting rig, robots, holograms, a string orchestra, smoke machines and dancing girls

Moby - it’s been 17 years since he gave us his mega hit ‘Go’ but his recent new album has been exciting the media as much this year as ever before

Mark Ronson - the Grammy and Brit award winning producer with devlish good looks disarms the dancefloor with his booty-loaded charm offensive live show

Sam Sparro – the same name lead singer of this new electro-funk band has been labelled a raspier Stevie Wonder and is so good that even Chaka Khan is a huge fan

More than 16 giant arenas with monolithic sound systems and state-of-the-art production will house the finest DJ talent on the planet. Tiesto, Sasha, John Digweed, 2manyDJs and Erick Morillo all return to deliver unforgettable festival sets. New for 2008:

Sven Vath - hosts his own techno arena named after his label, ‘Cocoon’

Roger Sanchez - presents the sound of ‘Stealth’ arena, his US House and Garage label

Spectrum - the uber credible breakbeat-electro brand never disappoints

Laurent Garnier - not just one of France’s, but also one of London’s # 1 techno maestros performs at Global Gathering for the first time.

All your favourite dance brands are back by popular demand including: Godskitchen who’ll host the biggest marquee tent in Europe with a gargantuan capacity of 15,000; plus Bedrock; Polysexual; Global; Random Concept and Mixmag.

Revellers should expect Global Gathering’s slick operation to run at full steam as ever, with amusements and attractions to keep the party flowing. This year’s campsite has grown even bigger and is large enough to fit 50 football pitches! All guests can enjoy hot showers and an outdoor cinema. Those who prefer to stay in the lap of luxury can take advantage of the Cloud9 VIP camping range which offers boutique accommodation, private washrooms and access to the VIP arena.
