Nozstock: The Hidden Valley returns once again. One of the country’s longest running events, Nozstock is nestled in the rolling Herefordshire countryside on the fully working Nosworthy family farm.

Tucked away and boasting outstanding views of the surrounding county, the Nosworthy family have created an intimate, eccentric and family-friendly event.

Boasting music, comedy and family entertainment, the team have shared the next wave of artists and performers joining the lineup for 2022.

Creative director Ella Nosworthy said: “The past two years have been so difficult for everyone, and what better way to shake off the cobwebs and celebrate the summer safely than by joining us for a proper good old dance at the farm.

“We absolutely cannot wait to welcome both returning and new Noz-goers to what we hope will be our best year yet. We’ve absolutely packed our line-up with big tunes, big laughs and big entertainment. I can’t wait to see you all there!”

Dance floor fillers Sister Sledge have been soundtracking parties, festivals and your stay at home playlists since the seventies. Joining them on the Orchard stage is Andy C featuring Tonn Piper . An underground phenomenon, Andy C has made himself a household name with his infectious brand of drum and bass.

Comedy is a vital part of the festival, and in 2022 Bill Bailey is making history as the first comedian to take a headline slot on the festival’s Orchard stage.

The Garden stage will see the likes of drum and bass force Calyz & Teebee with LX One, who have forged their own path.

One of the UK’s biggest producers Flava D will also be bringing her best tunes, and shaking the rafters of the Cubicles this year is Break – one of the drum and bass scene’s most prolific producers.
