Dear Nozstockers,

2024 will mark 26 years of Nozstock The Hidden Valley. It’s been more than two decades of unforgettable music and memories which will always hold a special place in our hearts. As will the artists we’ve showcased, the spectacles we’ve created and most importantly the friends we have made along the way. But all good things must come to an end and sadly Nozstock 2024 will be the last one.

We love this event and our crew have put everything into helping Nozstock survive and thrive. But after the losses incurred over COVID, straight into a cost-of- living crisis, the financial risk is becoming too great. Nozstock has always been a totally independent event, with a wide variety of entertainment on offer and although there are changes we could make to allow the festival to continue, the final product is something we don’t recognise and wouldn’t be the event you love. 

So this is it. In 2024 we will be opening the gates to Nozstock for the final time. But we intend to go out with a bang! We will be putting together a line-up of some of our favourites from over the years plus the usual exciting additions you’ve come to expect from us. We will celebrate the amazing 26 years we’ve had, the people we’ve met, the sights we’ve seen, the music we’ve heard and the moments we’ve made.

But when one door closes another opens. We will party again. We have lots of ideas we want to try for different events in different formats and are excited to start planning them. If you would like to hear more about future events sign up HERE. 

A huge thank you to all our performers over the years who kept our feet moving and our lips singing. To the traders, who kept our bellies full and our hearts happy. But most importantly thank you to our crew. Such a special group of people it has been an honour to work with and to know. They have been the backbone of our little event and without them the festival would be nothing. 

Finally, we want to thank each and every one of you for your support over the years. For the wonderful feedback that made us smile, the vision of 5000 people swaying in the Orchard. You made a drum n bass loving farmer very happy and created a Nozstock family that meant the world to us.
