What is it?
Now in its 15th year, Nozstock is a small family-run event set in a beautiful rural part of Herefordshire. It started life as a party for relatives and friends and has grown over the years into one of the friendliest small festival experiences to be had.
The Hidden Valley has over six stages, many nooks and crannies and is landscaped around a ramshackle Tudor farmhouse. The Orchard Stage is set at the foot of a natural arena on the side of the gently sloping valley.
Alongside the farmhouse is the Garden Stage, which provides a more eclectic line up, turning electronic by sundown. Whilst converted cowshed, the Cubicles, pushes out sub-thumping bass and dubstep and this year is hosted on Saturday by the legendary drum ‘n bass label RAM Records. With further music (including a new electro-swing stage), theatre, comedy stages and tents dotted around the site Nozstock offers a cornucopia of wonders to explore.
Joining DJ Yoda and Mr Scruff on the Garden Stage will be Resonators, Heymoon Shaker, By The Rivers, Backbeat Soundsystem, Coda, Octp Pi, Koncept, MouthMaster Murph, Goldseal, More Like Trees, Gypsy Unit, Cazal, Too Spicy, Duncan Disorderly and The Scallywags, Wyynona Ryyder, Caolin Claby,Johnny Kowasaki and The Sexy Weirdos, Captain Accident and The Disasters, Sarah Joy, Jennifer Booton, The Inexplicables, and The Cadbury Sisters.
This year’s theme is Wild Wild West, so dust off your cowboy hats, fringed moccasins, saloon skirts and ropey John Wayne impressions for what promises to be the best Nozstock yet.
