Cabinet of Lost Secrets

“Come, relax in our den and let us entertain you. If you dare to explore, we will show you the doors to your darker side, your playful innerself, the freak show, a place of lost secrets where the animals still party, inside this place where strange things found in time are collected and stored.”

Shortlisted for the AIF Festival Award ‘Most Unique Arena 2015’, The Cabinet of Lost Secrets returns for a fourth slice of weirdness at Nozstock the Hidden Valley, bringing you surprises and dancing in this strange, multi-roomed underground lair!

Expect the unexpected with immersive performance and pop up experiences, get properly ‘funked up’ with live funk & soul grooves, upbeat world rhythms and a touch of cutting-edge electronica, complimented by our dj funksters. And remember to keep an eye out for the secrets……

2018 line up includes…

7 SUNS
7 Suns are a ten-piece Afro/Latin funk group based in London! Universal music for universal people!
THE PINK DIAMOND REVUE
With their rock & roll swagger and unusual sultry frontwoman, ‘Acid Doll’, Pink Diamond Revue (Tim Lane and Rob Courtman Stock) are an underground live sensation who use samples and hard electronics to create transcendental psychedelic jams.
COLLECTIVE 43
Collective 43 are a playful congregation of multi-instrumentalists influenced by a New Orleans street band style. Creating some life on the streets near you, their sounds range from swing, funk, ragtime and dub all blended together to make a big band street sound.
CAPAS
Capas aka Phil Wilkins is a multi-instrumentalist and producer based in Worcestershire, focusing on electronic and live recordings to create a cinematic sound. Working in many forms, Capas takes inspiration from artists such as Bonobo, Cinematic Orchestra and Boards of Canada.
THE WOO TOWN HLLBILLES
Fun, energy and hoe-downs…all plentiful when you see The Woo Town Hillbillies. This collective of musicians really love what they do and it shows! You can expect high-flying bluegrass with tumbling banjo, mandolin and harmonica breaks, all mixed with a smattering of beautiful heartfelt tunes, accompanied by harmonies. All the musicians are versatile, composing their own songs and using pulsating rhythms on double bass, ukulele and guitar to drive this catchy fun-fueled band.
THE IMAGINARY HAT
Behold the musical stylings of The Imaginary Hat; 1920s jazz meets rock/punk, resulting in a band that’s as distorted as it is danceable. Through characteristically dark and absurd lyricism (think Cole Porter meets John Cooper Clarke), their songs explore the pitfalls and pleasures of 21st Century life. With a reputation for energetic live performances full of onstage antics and spontaneity, 2018 sees a new and expanded line-up, with a powerful brass section of trombone, saxophone and clarinet. Their sophomore EP is out Spring 2018.
SEAS OF MIRTH
Nautical rockers Seas Of Mirth have caused quite a ruckus across UK and Europe for the last six years. The nine-strong crew based in Nottingham come with their varying sound of worldly rhythms, interactive silliness, and bizarre sea-based song concepts, filling the independent festival circuit with their unique, upbeat and rambunctious shanty style performances! You can also catch them on the Orchard Stage on Sunday
