Creative Boom have been giving a little bit of love to small indie festivals with their article documenting the best 25 small independent festivals in the UK. As Katy Cowan, journalist at Creative… stated, “If you’re a bit like me and you still reminisce about the ‘good old days’ when Glastonbury wasn’t so huge and you’d prefer something a little more intimate and less commercial, then there are so many alternatives out there.” We’re really chuffed that they’ve recognised the power of the indie event and that small festivals like Nozstock can offer a huge experience and an array of wild entertainments that are totally homegrown and original.
Mancunian scenesters’ magazine, Example, enjoyed their visit to Nozstock last year and writer James really got to grips with the intimate grassroots environment, citing his enjoyment of “a number of smaller stages tucked into corners around the site. With some amazing small bands and musicians playing. You know the sort of hidden gems that make you stop in your tracks as you wander aimlessly through festivals and take a moment to actually appreciate a guy who can really play guitar…”
James also took some stunning images of the festival in full flow, which you can see in our gallery and on Example’s site. Enjoy.
