Such fantastic news – Nozstock is to return for 2021! Last summer was the first time Nozstock has not taken place in it’s 22-year history, with the entire UK festival season postponed due to COVID-19.
It has been a long and difficult last 12 months, with everyone impacted by the pandemic in some way. However, since last week’s road map news and timeline, the team are incredibly thrilled to announce they are coming back Thursday 22nd – Sunday 25th July 2021.
Our family could not be more excited, and are planning our trip up to Bromyard already. We are huge fans of this amazing little festival, having been each year for the past 6 years (excluding 2020 of course.)
Many of last year’s booked artists are all back for this summer. In the eclectic style which defines the festival, it’s a brilliantly diverse range of performers across the site’s 10 stages, including Sister Sledge, Bill Bailey, Andy C ft. Tonn Piper, Calyx and Teebee w/ LX One, Gentleman’s Dub Club, Submotion Orchestra, Ibibio Sound Machine, Dirty Dike, Flava D, Mungo’s HI FI ft. Gardna, Stanton Warriors, Break, Culture Shock, Kanine, Dutty Moonshine Big Band, 24hr Garage Girls, Nicky Blackmarket, Tankus The Henge, Randall, The Destroyers and hundreds more.
Ella Nozworth, Creative Director of Noztock has this to say: “We are astonished that we are so close to selling out. Since the road map news, we have seen a huge spike in demand like many other events, and we are now planning to have the festival as we intended last year – in its full Nozstock glory. We understand however that things are by no means certain. We are committed to going ahead, but only if it’s safe to do so. We will remain cautiously optimistic, keep watching how the situation unfolds and keep every finger and toe crossed that we have the summer we have all been waiting for. We can’t wait to welcome people back to the fields. The headliners and many of the artists and performers we had booked last year are all coming back which is great and we are working closely with the relevant bodies to ensure things are COVID secure.”
At the time of writing, there are less than 100 tickets left – best book up ASAP so that you don’t miss out!
