Well, it’s been 20 glorious years since we first opened the gates to the farm and welcomed you Nozzers with open arms. And although we’ve definitely seen some sights in 20 years, your thirst for Summer fun always amazes us. Yes, the sun is barely shining but you are obviously longing for fields, tents and tunes because the Super Early Birds have all been snapped up in record time. You know a bargain when you see one! But if imagining yourself at Nozstock 2018 is all that’s getting you through the thought of the night’s drawing in, then don’t despair. Early bird tickets are now available. We expect these tickets to sell like flaming hot hot cakes so if you don’t want to miss out be sure to grab yours whilst they are still cheap cheap cheap. Remember, if you want to impress all your friends with your astounding Nozstock knowledge and be the first in the know, then subscribe to our newsletter and get your information hot off the press.

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!

Sunday Tickets Available

Smiling girl in the sunshine

Can’t make it to the farm for the whole weekend? Don’t panic! You can still get your Noz-fix with a Sunday ticket.

What’s happening on Sunday, you ask? Well, the valley is home to 10 wonder-filled areas full of diverse sounds, ridiculous comedy and elaborate visual delights.

Fancy some comedy to cure those Sunday blues? Head to the Laughing Stock to have your sides well and truly split by Phil Kay, Henning Wehn and many more. Be impressed by our NozSlam spoken word finalists and as with all of Nozstock, there is plenty of kids entertainment too. If getting creative on a Sunday if your thing, try your hand at making greek pots, magic lanterns, Bandhani tie dye and Aztec sundials. Don’t worry about missing your sunday roast at the pub, we have good, affordable local food and drink to satisfy your every need.There is a whole lot more going on, but you’ll have to bring your ears, eyes and glitter to experience it!

Where do I buy a Sunday ticket? Show up at the entrance gate between 10am and 5pm to get your wristband.

How much is it? £35.

Can I camp? Yes – your Sunday ticket permits you to camp Sunday night. Please remember that the campsite closes at 1pm on Monday 25th July

Can I park? Yes – parking on Sunday costs £10.

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!
