Nozstock : The Hidden Valley

Family Festival

Nozstock is THE family festival. We visited last year with our usual festival crew in a bid to try something new. Little did we know that Nozstock would end up as a firm favourite on our festival calendars. Nozstock is home to 5000 teens, students, seasoned festiva-lites, party-starters and grandparents. It doesn’t feel as overwhelming as some of the larger family festival, great if your new to the seen. Yet there is an abundance to see and do over the 12 stages/areas and of course dedicated kids area – Little Kids Wonderland. The weekend is jam-packed with crafts, music and creative performances and literally everything in the kids area if Free, including the face painting!

Big Kids area?
22 Years Old

Nozstock : The Hidden Valley celebrates its 22nd year and is one of the UK’s longest running family-friendly festivals. This year the theme is Into The Great Unknown. “From the dawn of time through to its farthest futuristic reaches, this summer will be its most inspiring and enchanting journey yet” (Nozstock 2020). Last year one of the most impressive things for me was the attention to detail with the theme and the sets. The stages are all hand made by a team of creative geniuses and are something to behold. The first wave of artists getting to perform on these glorious stages from Thurs 23rd – Sunday 26th July, has just been announced.

Bill Bailey is one of my absolute favourites and is so suited to the festival. Ive also heard Sister Sledge put on a great performance so i’ll be pushing my way to the front for that one to.
