This year, So It Goes wanted to find a hidden gem of the UK festival circuit and recommend the hell out of it. Nozstock has been chuntering along in its hidden valley for 16 summers now. A family-run three-dayer on a farm in the heart of Herefordshire countryside, it combines the eclecticism of Wilderness with enough going on musically into the wee small hours to satisfy Secret Garden Party ravers. Happily, it's also smaller and less-known that those two older cousins.
The playlist below shows how Nozstock merges indie and electronica cleverly. Fun Lovin' Criminals as festival headliners gives the clue. Enjoy funk-rock with The Heavy, hip hop with Roots Manuva, drum'n'bass legends Andy C and Ram Records. Techno and house provided by the likes of James Zabiela and Eddy Temple Morris. All told, there's a broad spectrum of live music, DJs, arts, comedy, workshops, cinema and performance theatre in a sublime setting.
