It is with massive regret that we have to announce the cancellation of our Saturday night headliner, Wu-Tang Clan.
We’re really disappointed to drop this bombshell on everyone and suffice to say the crew here are seriously heartbroken that Wu can’t make it. For many of us it was going to be the highlight of our weekend and we are crestfallen that Wu-Tang Clan are going to be missing out on one of the best audiences they could ever wish for. You guys! We have received no specific reason for the cancellation of the rest of their tour and are without control to enforce their attendance at Nozstock. We are told we will receive an official cancellation announcement from their management by the end of this week, which we will share with you.
In the same breath, we have to say a massive thank you to De La Soul for agreeing to take to the Orchard Stage in their place. We’re really excited to have them here and to have them step up on such short notice.
For over 20 years they have rocked us with their De La songs full of inscrutable samplings, whimsically irreverent lyrics, social commentary, light rhythm and laid back rhymes. They have gained respect within and outside the hip-hop community with their contributions to rap, as well as jazz, funk, soul and alternative genres. Not only are their musical innovations acclaimed and respected worldwide, but they paved a path for many alternative rap groups to come after them.
As per our terms & conditions, tickets are non-refundable as the festival is sold as a whole experience. Please check here for the full ticket terms & conditions. Please do not contact our office or ticket team to request a refund as we will be unable to oblige. We understand that this will be frustrating for some of you but we hope the new bookings will go some way to compensating.
As you know Nozstock is a homegrown, grassroots festival full of colour and wonder. The programme is crammed full with hundreds of the most astounding, incredible and inspiring artists on this planet. The site is looking mind-blowingly intergalactic and downright super-spacey. We also have so many other exciting performances happening over the weekend, we know we’re going to take your brain to another dimension.
It’s time to buckle up and step aboard the Starship Noz, have an exhilarating time with new and old friends, live in the moment and look forward to having one of the best weekends of your life! As ever, more than anything, Noz is about it’s heart… and at the centre of ours is YOU, our crazy, beautiful and amazing punters.
Thanks for your undying support and your understanding with this change in the programming so late in the day.
Phasers set to fun, astronauts!
