It’s time for the Summer’s biggest dance party.
GlobalGathering is kicking off this weekend in Stratford-Upon-Avon with a star studded line up of dance, urban and pop artists including Chase and Status, David Guetta, The Prodigy and more. Get ready for all the action this Friday and Saturday with our need to know guide below.
What is GlobalGathering?
GlobalGathering is like a superclub exploded across a massive field leaving dance floors and DJ sets in its wake. The fest has been going since 2001 at its regular home of Long Marston Airfield in Stratford and quickly established itself as a go to summer event for clubbers, dance music aficionados, and DJ fanatics alike. This year has seen the most eclectic line-up to date for the festival, from drum and bass to soul pop to bro step there’s something for everyone.

Who’s on the line-up?
Dance masters Chase and Status are headlining Friday night and veterans The Prodigy will be tearing it up on Saturday. House DJ Alesso will also be there as will David Guetta who’s putting in an exclusive UK dance festival appearance. Not enough? How about London rave popstress Katy B, the gargantuan beats of Knife Party, plus Tinie Tempah, Eric Prydz, Netsky, Annie Mac and SO MANY MORE. It’s like a dance candy shop, have a look at the full line-up here.
Act you definitely can’t miss?
All the headliners are worth a look in, and it’s a strong line-up all around though personally we have a soft spot for the bro step of Knife Party. When they play Bonfire the crowd is going to spontaneously combust. Fact. BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac is also always an excellent choice with her combo of brand new hot tracks and dance floor classics.
What’s the weather meant to be like?
Warm but not quite the broiler we had last weekend. Expect mostly sunshine and a bit of clouds (though this being UK festival season it seems inevitable that rain will make a least a cameo appearance at some point).
