Nozstock Festival Nozstock Festival

Nozstock Festival

Nozstock was founded by a fun-loving family, their extended relatives, friends, acquaintances and pretty much everyone with 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 has woven it into a delightful amalgamation of performance, art, electronic supersounds, 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 in its 14th year, 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.

When its visitors down tools and hand themselves over to Nozstock’s crew, safe in the knowledge that their hedonistic needs will be met, they discover there’s a small world of frivolity to find, all carefully 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 entertainment, participation, and contribution. It’s an ever-changing event with a clear agenda to invite conversation, interaction, and severe recreation. Above all, Nozstock The Hidden Valley is a blissful family festival that caters to all ages with activities that little ones can enjoy and entertainment for teens, students, seasoned festivities and grandparents.
