Welcome to the ticketing page for Goths on a Field 4!

As per the previous GOAF events, this is not a commercial festival, but is instead a volunteer-managed, social-camping event intended to give people a chance to get together, catch up, relax and generally have a good time!  And not only have we secured a great place to do this, but we've also got some great musical acts joining us!


Friday July 5th (Evening)

This year, we'll be having more of an acoustic setup for the Friday, to help ease us all into a weekend of fun...


Jo Carley And The Old Dry Skulls

https://www.olddryskulls.com/

Presenting a unique blend of creepy vaudeville and New Orleans voodoo, this spooky combo brings it all: bass, guitar and a washboard!


Hi-Reciprocity

http://www.hireciprocity.co.uk/

There's (hopefully) no kazoos involved, but Hi-Reciprocity does offer a fine blend of melancholic folk tunes inter-spaced with wry stories.

Ravenhymn

https://ravenhymn.bandcamp.com/

Bringing a bit of the German Festival feel to our little field, Ravenhymn offer some of the finest neo-medieval music around.  With bagpipes, naturally.

Chaos Bleak

Palindrones

This industrial synthpop duo craft immersive musical landscapes, mixing pounding beats and blistering synth drones, with a lush ambience, hypnotic organic textures, subtle pop melodies and haunting, esoteric lyrics that draw the listener into a dream-like reverie


Saturday July 6th (Afternoon)

The Wattingers

The Venue and Location

GOAF 4 will be held at a farm in Northwood, just between Wrexham and Shrewsbury, and we've been lucky enough to secure the use of several large flat fields which come complete with a water tap and toilet facilities.  In addition, the farm has both an outdoor stage complete with power and lighting, and a large barn which we can use as an indoor stage, if the weather proves unsuitable for outdoor revelries!

The fields are easily accessible from the main road, and we'll put up signposts on the weekend to help guide people in.

Cars can be parked on the field, and people are welcome to bring campervans at no extra cost, though please note that no power hookups are available.

Please note that we ask attendees to respect the following:

  • The farm itself will be off limits for the duration of the festival
  • This is a working farm, so pets are not allowed
  • Fires/BBQs are permitted, but must raised above the ground
  • Keep noise to a minimum when near the farm buildings
  • Ensure that gates etc are kept closed
  • Don't litter or leave rubbish behind; bin liners will be provided, so please make use of these!

The Event

GOAF 4 is a private event ran by volunteers.  It's not a festival with professional staff and there will not be any food stalls or bars, though people are welcome to bring their own drinks, and there are supermarkets in the nearby towns and villages.  Similarly, while there are toilet facilities on the site, we will not be keeping them stocked with toiletries!

As such, please bring everything which you need for the weekend - e.g. food, drink, sanitary products, toilet roll, battery packs, etc. And if you do have any special requirements, please contact the organisers prior to buying a ticket, so that we can confirm if we're able to support them.

Children are welcome to join us, and can attend for free if under the age of 16; anyone older than this will be expected to purchase a full-price ticket.  However, please note that neither the farm nor the GOAF volunteers can accept any responsibility for the safety or wellbeing of any children who do attend!

Equally, please note that all attendees are expected to:

  • Accept personal responsibility at all times for their actions
  • Look after their personal possessions
  • Treat all other attendees with respect
  • Treat the farm with respect, especially with respect to noise levels and litter

In the event of any inappropriate or disruptive behaviour - including the use of illegal drugs - people will be asked to immediately leave, and refunds will not be given.

As with all live events, performances and timings may be subject to change.  If this does cause any concerns, please contact the organisers; refunds etc will be handled as per the Tickets section below.
