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!

Honourable citizens of Noz – we thank you for your presence!

Friends, Romans, countrymen … time to kick off your gladiator sandals, hang up your togas, put your sword and shield in storage for the winter and have yourself a nice sit down. Pop the kettle on. Bribe your mates to fan you with leaves and feed you grapes. You deserve it. Because, Nozzers, you smashed it out of the blimmin’ park this year.

From the littl’uns wowing us all with their arty crafty creations in the Kids Area to the dedicated partytroopers keeping the neighbouring cows awake til the wee small hours, each and every one of you brought a certain je ne sais quoi to proceedings. Repeat offenders and brand-spanking-newbies all coming together as thousands of threads in the beautiful tapestry of Nozstock, if you will.

All of us here at NozHQ thought this year’s crowd was the most chilled, friendly and fun-hungry we’ve had in yonks – not to mention the Sun Dance shapes you were all pulling helped keep the rain at bay for the weekend. We make you earn your keep down here on the farm …

As ever, credit where credit is due to the acts who kept you on your feet and/or on the edge of your seat, as well as to the traders who kept the Nozstock army marching, fed and sharply attired, and to the hordes of volunteers who descended on the farm to keep it clean, safe and sparkly for you all to do your thang in.

If you’re looking to give us a little token of your appreciation for the weekend you’ve just had – or if your Nozstock wasn’t quite up to standard and you want to let us know – please have a click on our Nozstock 2016 feedback form. There’s £100 of Amazon vouchers up for grabs for one lucky entrant to sweeten the deal.

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter over the coming weeks for photographic evidence of your time on the farm – to keep you going through those lonely winter nights when Nozstock 2016 begins to seem like a distant dream. Don’t worry folks, we’ll be back before you know it – see you in 2017…
