Often described as the most picturesque festival in Britain, Gottwood is well known for it’s considered and excellent curation. Following its eighth edition this year, we went behind the scenes to speak to artists and find out more about what makes this mad and mystical Welsh pearl tick.

Kicking off our new event-film series, ON REEL, we are delighted to begin with Gottwood Festival. With FULL LENGTH INTERVIEWS to come and our coverage of east-coast sister festival Houghton to follow, make sure to tune in and keep your ear to the ground.
