Gottwood Festival


Gottwood is a critically acclaimed, independent, boutique, and intimate underground electronic music festival.

The show has grown considerably from its small scale routes and the organisers brought in The Fair as specialists to help with Festival Health & Safety for the advance & running of the show.


The first year Gottwood had outsourced H&S Consultancy.

The remote site is complex as it  has restricted access but this makes it all the more stunning once the show goes live.

Particular emphasis on management of crowd migration as the site’s 7 arenas all have relatively small capacities and limited routes to move between them.


  • H&S advisor on site during build, live event and break
  • Review paperwork from suppliers
  • Review all concession paperwork
  • Method Statement
  • RA
  • Risk Audit
  • FRA


We loved working with the Gottwood family -the attention to detail they put in is amazing. They are the boutique festival – there was a great atmosphere, the site is beautiful and the audience truly appreciate all the work that goes in to the show.

“It was great working with The Fair, a competent and safe set of hands across the festival site with a team that really ‘got’ the ethos of what we push for.”
