global gathering 1

Win: GlobalGathering is just days away… And we’re AMPED to be hosting the UKF Arena for yet another year.

Double win: We’ve got 2 pairs of tickets to give away before 6pm Tuesday 22 July. Read on and find out how…

Its 14th bash to date, GlobalGathering has developed into one of THE UK’s leading dance festivals. Consistent – both in terms of its standard airfield stomping ground in Long Marston and its ability to evolve and remain on point throughout the years – and authoritative, GlobalGathering has hosted the biggest names dance music has ever seen.

We proud to be hosting our own arena for the third year running and we’ve recruited some awesome names to party with us. On Saturday July 26 we’ll be home to the likes of Krakota, Pegboard Nerds, My Nu Leng, Kove, DJ EZ, B Traits, Hannah Wants, Matrix & Futurebound, Friction, Shy FX, Wilkinson and Pretty Lights. Wow!

PLUS there are stacks of other incredible acts line-up throughout the rest of the festival. Catering for every possible taste in electronic music, all ears should be happy with GlobalGathering’s spread this year… House heads, techno lovers, big room disciples, bass freaks and D&B addicts: all crews will unite for what is set to be on the UK festival’s major highlights.

Here’s a top 10 to get us all in the mood. Trust us, this was hard… We could run a Top 30 and still have acts we want to include!


Fresh from signing exclusively to Hospital, Krakota will be dropping some serious vibes in the UKF Arena. We can’t wait!


Main stage vibes! Netsky will be delivering his explosive live show on the Friday night before Chase & Status take headline duties. Make no mistakes… This is going to be epic.

Gorgon City

We’re still buzzing from Gorgon City’s extended showdown at EXIT last weekend. We’ve got a sneaky feeling they’ll be bringing the same vibes to the BBC Radio 1Xtra stage on Friday night!


A bit of a rarity on UK festival line-ups this year, GlobalGathering and SW4 are the only events British dance fiends can catch him this summer. You’ll find him on main stage on Saturday… Not to be missed.

Hannah Wants


One of the meanest DJs to emerge in recent times, chopping up the vibes with cut-throat pace, Hannah’s sets are the stuff of legend. We’re honoured to have her play in the UKF Arena!

Dub Phizix & Strategy

Injecting some steppy, subby sickness into David Rodigan’s arena equation… Dub Phizix & Strategy are set to tear a massive hole in Long Marston on Saturday night, you marka our words! (Sorry)

Pretty Lights

Fresh from smashing EXIT festival with us last weekend, we welcome Pretty Lights once again! Two of the many reasons this will be sick… 1: The production on his live show is immense! 2: he told us recently he’s got some next-level bangers. Oh yes!

Pegboard Nerds

The Danish dynamos don’t hit the UK anywhere near as much as we’d like them to… But when they do, all hell breaks loose! Check them on Saturday night in the UKF Arena and you’ll see just how much chaos they’ll create!


Looking for some dirty love this festival season? Look no further… Wilko is SMASHING the festivals this summer, and his appearance with UKF will be no exception. No question!

The Prodigy


The Prodigy! Do we need to say any more? In case you think we do, here’s a Top 10 that explains just how much we love these legends.
