History of Nozstock Festival
Amid the emerald fields and raggle-taggle farmhouses of Herefordshire?s ruralest countryside lies Nozstock The Hidden Valley.
Like the very best of festivals, Nozstock was founded by a fun-loving family, their extended relatives, friends, acquaintances and pretty much everyone who had a guitar to play or a joke to tell. It was a hazy, optimistic time at the turn of the millennium, when life felt simple and summers were long and full of amusements. The Hidden Valley has successfully retained this homely, welcoming nostalgia, but have woven it into a delightful amalgamation of performance, art, electronic supersounds and good old-fashioned guitar-strumming and drum-bashing, thanks to some great advice and not a small dose of audience participation and feedback. Now an established, leading family event, 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.
