The Godskitchen Arena

Godskitchen staged their first outdoor festival Global Gathering on Saturday 28 July 2001 at Long Marston Airfield in Warwickshire nr. Stratford-Upon-Avon in the UK.

The event ran from 4pm on the 28th through until 7am on the 29th, with an after party following the event on the Sunday afternoon at CODE (now AIR), Godskitchens nightclub in Birmingham UK Global Gathering entered the British summer dance festival market in a crowded year which saw Homelands, Gatecrasher, Cream and the Ministry of Sound also staging events. However, despite the competition Global Gathering was a complete success, this being helped by fine weather and a sell out attendance of 25,000 people.

The festival has since become a highlight of the British summertime music scene, with Godskitchen subsequently staging four further Global Gatherings in the UK at Long Marston. In 2002, 2003 and 2004 Godskitchen Global Gathering attracted 35,000 revellers to each event leading to Global Gathering 2005, a two-day "weekender" event which introduced a completely brand new music policy for the Friday evening, camping facilities and an increased capacity of 45,000 people.

Godskitchen Global Gathering was broadcast live on Birmingham`s Galaxy Radio on the 28 and 29 July 2001.
