Global Gathering 2006

Global Gathering 2006 took place on the 28th and 29th of July, at Long Marston Airfield near Stratford-upon-Avon, UK. The festival was promoted by Angel Music Group, previously known as Godskitchen (which completed a restructuring and rebranding programme in 2005), to reflect their wide range of music-related interests, although the Godskitchen Arena was the centrepiece of the festival's line up. Other arena hosts included Essential Selection, Air, Polysexual, Bedrock, Carl Cox & Friends, Strongbow Ciderhouse, and others. The outdoor beach stage also returned for the event, and it was covered by BBC Radio 1. Acts included, Daft Punk, and Groove Armada, among many others. Radio 1 also broadcasted 4-hour extended Essential Mix, which featured Fatboy Slim, Deep Dish, DJ Tiësto, and Ferry Corsten.

Global Gathering took place for the first time in the United States on 18 March 2006 in Miami,Florida, at the city-owned Bicentennial Park alongside Biscayne Bay. This event marked the first time that the festival has gone across the Atlantic. Angel Music Group, parent company of Godskitchen, partnered up with United States-based companies Track Entertainment, (which acquired AMG on June 5th, 2006), [ Bacardi] and Club Space, to produce and promote the event. Acts included Sasha and John Digweed, Deep Dish, Roger Sanchez, Adam Freeland, Murk, and rock acts such as Nine Inch Nails, Rob Zombie, Lacuna Coil, Avenged Sevenfold, Tommy Lee, and more.

With the success of the Miami event, Bacardi Global Gathering did a second Stateside festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Labor Day Weekend in September 2006. Performers included Tiësto, Papa Roach, Uncle Kracker, and more. The event took place at The Palms resort in Las Vegas over the course of the holiday weekend.

Angel Music Group presented HI-FI (EIRE), which took please over the 4th-5th of August in the grounds of Belvedere House and Gardens, Co.Westmeath. This festival follows in the successful footprints of Global Gathering Ireland from 2005.

For the 2007 year, the festival will be taking a brief hiatus from the United States. However, the original UK festival is already being planned, and presale tickets are being sold.
