First wave of acts revealed for 2017!

Roses are red, violets are blue, here’s your first 2017 line-up release, you lucky things you! We have quite the bouquet of acts this year, with more variety than a fancy box of chocolates. Drumroll please…

We are almost TOO excited to announce that Seasick Steve will be at Nozstock 2017. Yes that’s right, folks; the king of American blues, the Sonic Soul Surfer, the dungaree-clad master of diddley bow and banjo will be bringing his Oakland spirit to the Orchard Stage!

Next up…attention 24 Hour Party People! Clap Your Hands and Rave On because The Boys Are Back in Town…our town Bromyard to be precise – in case you hadn’t guessed already, we welcome the legendary Happy Mondays to Noz this year! Returning to the farm in 2017 is barefoot troubadour and a cult legend, Beans on Toast!  Our next announcement is a very bassy one indeed…we’ve got Delta Heavy on board to fill your earholes with their paradisiacal sound.

We’re not done there. We have the reigning King of bass and remixery, Krafty Kuts. With multiple awards to his name, we can’t wait to see what mayhem he causes on our grassy dance floor when he’s joined by Dynamite MC. Up next and as hard hitting as cupid’s arrow, is this dream team: Birmingham Drum & Bass powerhouse Hazard and party master MC Eksman. Even more bass to add to that face, we are beyond pumped to have 15 Years of Critical Music featuring Break, Ivy Lab, Kasra and Foreign Concept.

Where is the reggae music you ask? Oh Nozstockers…prepare yourselves for the officer of the highest ragga rank, General Levy who is coming to party with you on the farm. Joining the General, are music makers and reggae innovators, Mungo’s Hi Fi. We’ve got a sensational crop of the very best hip-hop this year too. Praised as “the future of UK hip-hop” by Complex Magazine, Ocean Wisdom brings his revolutionary sound to our homestead. Joining him, is certified legend and original RiddimKilla himself, Rodney P & Skitz, versatile vocalist Dabbla with Illaman & DJ Frosty and the imitable Lady Chann.

If you weren’t already head over heels for 2017’s line up; we’ve got the energetic and extraordinary pioneers of all things electro, The Correspondents, who will be tearing up the farm with their swing bass creations. We challenge you not to dance! That applies to our next act too…they have the Rodigan stamp of approval, Lewisham boys, Chainska Brassika will be lighting up the Orchard Stage with their pumped up ska anthems, as will Land of The Giants with their foot-stomping beats and contagious enthusiam.

If you hadn’t guessed it, we are putting all of our love into this year’s festival and we can’t wait to rendezvous with you on the farm. Have a look at the other GLORIOUS artists that will be joining the Noz family this year
here and keep an eye out for more announcements coming soon. So good it’s almost surreal…
