Glamp it up proper…

Camp in style at The Hidden Valley this year and book yourself a Bell Tent – the ultimate in boutique luxury. Hotel Bell Tents’ beautiful spaces and moody lighting create a home away from home and the room service ain’t bad either. If your idea of a proper festival experience is sleeping in comfort and not having to forgo those cosmopolitan habits then book yourself in and have a truly glamorous Nozstock 2011. We won’t tell your friends that you didn’t rough it properly… Check out Hotel Bell Tent’s website now to book your boutique experience.

Volunteer and get in free…

Seeking outgoing, fun-loving, sensitive and above all utterly responsible volunteers for this year’s festival. You know if you’ve got the gubbins for the job – apply and join the team for a couple of shifts and see the festival for nada. Gratis. Experience is great but if you’ve got the nous and can learn quickly and carry out instructions with ease then you’re in. Dressing up may be required for those of you in the party spirit and feeling risque.

Creative Boom get sweet on small festivals

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.

Find out what Creative Boom had to say about last year’s Nozstock.

Example Magazine’s take on the 2010 experience

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.
