GlobalGathering is the world’s first truly global music festival brand, breaking all boundaries around the world to bring the best electronic music and production to over a million electronic music fans.

Now into its 14th year, GlobalGathering has long been established as being one of the UK’s most cherished summer festivals. Residing on Long Marston Airfield in Stratford Upon Avon, GlobalGathering has perfected its two day serving of the planets best electronic music and has consequently become the favourite of many festival goers both nationwide and further afar.

Watch some of the many highlights from the 2013 event here:

The 2014 edition sees Defected In The House host a huge arena at GlobalGathering on Friday 25 July as part of the Defected15 Club Tour, with a line-up deserving of such a preeminent spot at the world-renowned festival.

MK, Cajmere, Guti (Live), Noir, Oliver $, Shadow Child, Sam Divine, Simon Dunmore and GotSome are all confirmed to play: an extraordinary line-up for what will surely prove to be one of the summer’s highlights.


Global Gathering started its life in 2001 as a one day festival, and had already gained a great reputation by its fourth year when it added the second day to make the festival a weekend long affair. The likes of Underworld, Daft Punk and Tiësto headlined the main stage in Global’s earlier years whilst techno maestro Carl Cox started to host his own ‘Global Arena’ from the third onset. As the festival progressed and became bigger, amounting to hold over 50,000 people reaching the end of the first decade, the music bill became more diverse, inviting huge artists such as Kanye West, Mark Ronson and Pendulum to perform live on the main stage.


Despite booking these more mainstream acts, dance music – and house in particular – remains the main draw for the tens of thousands of people who religiously attend the festival, and in that particular area Defected In The House is the clear leader in terms of the calibre of artists it brings to the party.

Over the years GlobalGathering in the UK has created an abundance of highlights in the dance music calendar, and 2014’s event looks set to add its own incredible moments to that list. Make sure you’re a part of it.
