The organisers have invited the Californian production team to travel over from the States and create two landmark environments, similar in scale to recent showpieces at festivals such as Coachella and Burning Man.  The Do LaB have become the undisputed masters in building interactive environments, combining large-scale installations and cutting-edge lighting design and are now set to sprinkle their creative genius over the GlobalGathering site.  

For those wishing to enjoy the two-day camping festival whilst returning at night to the lap of luxury, GlobalGathering has a selection of VIP packages on offer in their lavish camping area; Luxury Camping @ Cloud9. Set in tranquil surroundings away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the festival, people can either bring their own campervan or choose from accommodation ranging from Gypsy Bow Caravans to Tipi’s, Podpads, Kacoons and more. Those staying here will also get all the benefits of VIP ticket holders.
