Festival Description

Amid the brushes of Herefordshire’s countryside lies Nozstock: The Hidden Valley. Founded by local residents during the hazy, optimistic and halcyon days at the turn of the millennium, it’s a homegrown event built from a curious amalgamation of performance, art, electronic supersounds and good old‐fashioned guitar strumming and drum bashing.

Established in 1998, Nozstock is a sonic escape boasting eight main stages of entertainment with surprising sights and intimate, secluded areas of  theatre and discovery to be unearthed. The laid back atmosphere of the event for three pleasure-filled days, there’s a small world of frivolity to find, all scrupulously programmed by the festival’s founders, the Nosworthy family and their eclectically‐informed friends. The festival’s ethos is about bringing play to everyone, in whatever form it can. Nozstock believes in the value of not only entertaining, but in participation and contribution. Above all, Nozstock: The Hidden Valley is a blissful family festival that caters to all ages with activities that little ones can enjoy as well as families en bloc,  keeping in the spirit of those early days.
