Brand new for 2009 is 'The Godskitchen Boombox', a colossal rectangular structure that will house the state-of-the-art DJ equipment in the Godskitchen Arena and will also act as a giant screen from which lighting, LED's and visuals will be projected in perfect synchronisation with the music.

This year Global Gathering introduced a ticket scheme which allowed festival goers to pay for tickets by putting down a £50 deposit - the balance must be paid before midnight on Friday 15th May 2009.

Tickets are on sale at the price of £115 for the whole event, or £59.50 for Saturday only. To buy tickets or pay a deposit, click here.

NOTE: this is an over-18s only event.

The event will run from 5pm-2am on the Friday and 2pm-6am on the Saturday.

The campsite has hot showers and an outdoor cinema. As well as the music there's usually The Urban Village with hip-hop DJs, skate ramps, BMX riders, break dancers and graffiti artists, and extreme rides in the fairground.

Global Gathering has now been granted a permanent license, meaning that the festival will be a guaranteed fixture on the music events calendar. The license, which received no public objections, has been granted to allow the event breathing space to grow even bigger year on year.

More information will be here when available.
