Gottwood is a strictly aged 18+ event. We operate a challenge 25 policy and will ID all individuals that appear to be under the age of 25, there will be strictly no entry to those who are under the age of 18. Unfortunately we will not be able to offer refunds to those refused entry on the day.

There are more roles as well, so get some friends together and let us know how you can help in exchange for a free ticket.
We don’t pride ourselves on our close proximity to a major city but that’s all part of the appeal… we’re in the middle of nowhere, and it’s great, apart from the fuel!
If you must use a car we would encourage lift sharing where possible, it’s cheaper, greener and more fun. Go Car Share are sorting all the car sharing this year so head over to the specific Go Car Share Gottwood page to hook up a ride. Having said this the site is very accessible by car and is conveniently served by a dual carriageway, excluding the last 10 minutes.
Head for Bangor and exit east on the A55 towards Anglesey. Take the A55 all the way to Valley where you will start to see signs to the festival. On approaching Valley take the exit onto the A55 and take a right at the roundabout. Continue to the cross roads and take another right onto the A5025, follow this for approximately 8 miles until you reach the village of Llanfaethlu. At the approach to the village bear left at the ‘Y’ junction and you will begin to see the gates to the festival on your right.
The nearest train station is Holyhead and it takes approximately 3.5 hours from London (Direct from Euston), 2 from Manchester. There will be numerous taxi’s on hand to transport you from the train station to the site. Ask for Gottwood Festival in Llanfaethlu, just off the A5025, it will be signposted from Valley.
Cheapest Taxi companies are Alpha Cabs - 01407 765 000 or A A A Taxi’s - 01407 761 000 / 01407 760 202. You shouldn’t be looking to spend more than £20.
We couldn’t possibly charge you extra to get your head down… could we? No of course not, access to the campsite is included in the ticket price, unless you want a posh tipi tent, or a space to park your van.
If your thinking that you do want to bring you campervan, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Camper Van Application’. We will then be able to give you latest and keep you updated as to our plans.

We are privileged to have such an amazing site and surroundings to host the festival in, we don’t want to ruin it, in fact we want to look after it as well as putting as much effort as we can back into the local community.
We will be working closely with the local council, villages and emergency services to provide the best possible festival for both the locals and the travelling festival goers.
We aim to source local produce and utilize local services where possible. We will be hunting out all the local talent providing a platform for them to perform upon as well as giving local students a chance to showcase there work and talent.
We are very aware that we are situated in the centre of an area of outstanding natural beauty and we want to support this. We will be working with sustainable waste and refuse companies, the forestry commission, as well as promoting greener methods of transport, ‘eco toilets’ and more. We would appreciate your support and commitment to this whilst enjoying the festival.
