Reaching its 18th year in 2016, Nozstock is nestled in the rolling hills of a beautiful working farm in the heart of Herefordshire. The immensely welcoming and independent event has evolved from 50 friends at the inaugural gathering into an intimate musical odyssey, one of the UK’s longest running festivals. Curated by the father and daughter duo of ‘Noz’ and Ella, there’s a unique charm and energy to Nozstock, quite unlike anything else in the UK.

Joining the wild dots between hip-hop, ska, reggae, folk, funk, soul, drum and bass, psytrance, electro-swing and a whole lot more across nine stages, plus interactive adventure and performance, Nozstock is a playground for all. From seasoned festival goers to newbies setting out for their first time there is something for everyone. This year’s festival theme is ‘Wonders of the Ancient World,’ so expect wild fancy dress displays and breath-taking decor.
