One Records owner Adam Shelton says: "10 years of any event is something to be proud of and Gottwood should feel just that. Each year growing in a natural way, providing a diverse collection of artists to a fun loving crowd, how can you not love it! The festival has supported our label and gave us the chance to showcase who we want the past years, we are also 10 years old in 2019, I forecast a special one. Respect."
Expect a stunning bill of breakthrough artists, renowned selectors and birthday surprises for Gottwood's 10th anniversary.

DJ Tennis born in the 70's and raised between New Jersey, Sicily and Parma in a family who paid just a passing attention to music. No relatives played any musical instruments, nor were there any around the home - music was never given any special amount of love in the Romano household. But despite this, and perhaps as a direct result of this, Romano's creative and artistic attitude has always centred around music: singing, creating and collecting weird and noisy musical instruments at every turn.
DJ Tennis tour dates
DVS1 (aka Zak) moves floors with a combination of deep musical knowledge, unparalleled enthusiasm, and a vinyl collection of more than 10,000 records. Zak began his DJ career focusing on 90s acid sounds before his style evolved into something more complex, deeper and more rhythmic. He has since branched out into a wide variety of sounds—from hard and fast, to deep and hypnotic, to slow and soulful. A consummate performer, Zak never maps out his sets ahead of time, opting to craft sets spontaneously.
DVS1 tour dates
Egyptian Lover started out in the early Eighties as the DJ for Uncle Jams Army. They organised parties in the LA-area for 10.000 people. Artists involved were, amongst others, the then still unknown Run DMC, Whodini or Ice T. He quickly became the number one DJ on the west coast, due to his impressive mixing skills, which can be heard in every Egyptian Lover live show. His first record 'Egypt, Egypt' turned the Egyptian Lover into an international recording star and opened the way for a whole bunch of producers inspired by the booming bass, sexy lyrics and dark melodies of the Egypt style. Egyptian Lover's live shows are a unique experience, the freshest show in electro music performed by a legend: Egyptian Lover

Releasing across a variety of labels such as Prins Thomas’ Internasjonal, Rush Hour, Ostgut Ton, W.T., and Permanent Vacation, Hunee’s craftily-sampled tracks, such as Rare Silk and Brother are packed full of disco sensibility and dancefloor dynamism, falling timelessly between respectful homage and modern day revamp.

Margaret Dygas is a Polish DJ known as Malgorzata Dygasiewicz to the folks back home. Her ear for eclectic compositions and ability to drop mesmerising, extended performances defies any traditional definition of a preferred style or genre. However a scintillating combination of classic house tracks twisted against deep/dub techno and driving minimal can be expected.
Margaret Dygas tour dates
Three years after his last album – Ghost People – Martyn joins the Ninja Tune family to present his third long player. Universally respected for his ever-evolving, but inimitable sound, the Dutch-born, Washington DC-based producer brings an entirely new sonic direction with The Air Between Words. This is an exploration of the essence of all of Martyn’s music: a rugged four-to-the-floor groove, intelligently sculpted and artfully composed.
Stylistically and sonically, Martyn stands apart from his counterparts. His music incorporates vintage references but is steadfastly forward-facing at the same time. He’s always done that. His sound is heritage and future - and that character has elevated him alongside fellow electronic heavyweights such as Four Tet, Kode9, dBridge and Mark Pritchard.
Martyn tour dates
Move D, aka David Moufang, is one of modern electronic music’s most beloved souls.

Move D tour dates
From Jupiter to Berlin and countless capitals in between, Nicolas Lutz has always operated best on the very outskirts of dance floor culture. A master of mystery and relentless seeker, his knack for unearthing precious gemstones - for immediate exploitation and then, slowly but surely, the greater good of the community - is uncanny, and its this insistence on clearing a path between the unknown and the utterly unexpected that elevate his sets into explorations of faraway lunar landscapes and charters through the depths of murky seas.
Nicolas Lutz tour dates
Palms Trax is a producer and Dj based in Berlin, Germany. What began as an experiment in pad-driven Detroit workouts soon became Palms Trax calling card, the young producer building valve-heated, dust-treated slabs of house in his home studio, shot through with melodic synths and smooth, undulating drum patterns that recalls the likes of Legowelt, John Heckle, Tevo Howard, and Nu-Groove era Burrell Brothers.
