With this year’s theme being “Nozstalgia” – festival goers can expect anything from Ghostbusters to Karate Kid and Gameboys to flared jeans popping up amongst the idyllic festival, which runs from Friday 20th – Sunday 22nd July this year.

Along with a kaleidoscope of live performances, the festival itself is known for being a colourful, glittering and circus-like escape in a working farm. Last year’s Nozstock: The Hidden Valley was like a secret woodland village, every twist and turn introducing you to a new hidden party filled with eclectic people, circus performers, glitter and holi powder and even fireworks.

Nozstock: The Hidden Valley has always had themes of community and play for everyone. The festival started as a modest gathering amongst friends and family members and has grown to the enchanting and theatrical experience it is known as today.

Ella Nosworthy, who runs Nozstock: The Hidden Valley with her father, said: “No-one is more surprised than us that we’ve made it to our 20th birthday! We’re planning our biggest show ever to make it a real celebration, we’ve bought back some of our favourite and most memorable artists from the past 20 years. Our Nozstalgia theme is whatever you feel fond about from the past. There’s lots of inspiration to get really creative!”
