Award winning green efforts…

We are very pleased to announce that Nozstock has been recognised with an Improvers Award in A Greener Festival Awards 2016. Improvers Awards are given to events which exhibit a significant engagement with the process of reducing environmental impact. A Greener Festival is a non-profit organisation dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of music festivals and events. Since 2007 they have assessed over 300 festivals and have been instrumental in helping events to become more environmentally conscious. Since the schemes relaunch in 2016, festivals have been challenged more than ever to be awarded so we are especially thrilled that our efforts have been recognised in this way. A huge thank you to all the AGF assessors and all our punters, crew, artists and traders who did everything they could to make Nozstock 2017 clean and green!

Going greener for 2017

nightsign

We’ve been busy hatching plans for how we can go greener for Noz’ 2017.  One of the big suggestions to come out of the survey from you guys, was the introduction of a refundable eco-bond to encourage visitors to clean up their campsite. These have been introduced across a whole bunch o’ festivals lately and we feel it’s time to do the same here in the Hidden Valley. So, you’ll find a £5 deposit is added to each ticket when purchasing from today onwards. This is fully refunded at the festival on the Monday morning, when you provide us with a full bin bag of rubbish (no bottles and cans please – they’re for the recycling), and your barcoded eco-bond ticket. We’re really looking forward to seeing how sparkling the site can look with a gentle nudge in a greener direction and thank you for all the other green and clean suggestions you’ve been sending in – keep ’em coming!

The Timer’s Been Set for Buying Tickets…

Can you believe Nozstock is just eight days away??! We’re counting down the days here at the farm14895277033_d5c91bbdae_z and everything’s looking pretty peachy. Just a quick note to say remember that we stop selling tickets at MIDNIGHT on SATURDAY 18TH JULY via our website so you gotta get in quick. The only way you’ll be able to snag a ticket after Saturday is through See Tickets, who will continue selling them until midnight on Wednesday 22nd. If you want to buy a local ticket then vendors in Bromyard will be selling them for the next few days- but when they’re gone they really are gone.  If you haven’t already planned your travel, spare a thought to the Nozstock buses and the GoCarShare pages. Make some festival friends and keep it green!

We can’t wait to see you next weekend, don’t forget to pack your bass faces!
