Nozstock The Hidden Valley is pleased to announce its first line up of artists for 2012. Early Bird tickets will also be on sale from 10am, Thursday 8th March. This years theme is Myths & Legends.

This small family-run event now in its 14th year is set in a beautiful rural part of Herefordshire. It started life as a party for relatives and friends and has grown organically over the years into an experience where a sense of belonging still holds true. There is a warm, inclusive welcome, synonymous with the small festival experience, an ethos of fun and participation, and an incredible array of entertainments. All genres of music play out over six stages, with additional stages hosting theatre, comedy, workshops and kids’ activities. It’s a most welcome summer escape from the pressures of modern life for partygoers of all ages.

The Hidden Valley is landscaped around a ramshackle Tudor farmhouse. It sits behind the main ORCHARD STAGE and 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. Converted cowshed the CUBICLES pushes out sub-thumping drum ‘n’ bass and dubstep. And further music, theatre, comedy stages and tents are located in secret woodland glades around the site.
