Nozstock: The Hidden valley announce final artists and Little Wonderland for kids and families

June 19, 2017

With Nozstock now just a few weeks away, the festival is very proud to announce its final round of artists and also to introduce this summer’s Little Wonderland for kids and families of all ages.

Ella Nosworthy, one of the festival founders, explains: “We are getting very excited now as the festival is getting closer and are really happy to reveal out final round of artists, and also what all the families and children can enjoy at Little Wonderland. It’s incredible to reach our 19th year and we are going to make it our biggest and best yet!”

They Say Jump bring their energising live show drawing on a wide range of musical cultures, whilst story telling from Westerman is influenced by John Martyn, Nick Drake and Neil Young. Cousin Kula’s Bristolian psych-pop will have Nozstock jumping, as will Noble Jacks’ rip-roaring alt-rock. They are joined by Deaf Pictures, King Solomon Band and Harwicke Circus’ rock and roll, alongside Professor Elemental’s inspired mix of hip-hop and comedy. Wovoka Gentle fuse folk and pop to great effect, Neck’s six-piece psycho-Ceilídh will have everyone jumping and Bromyard’s own Vaginapocolypse bring their unique sleazy-listening. White Feather Collective are a British 4-piece surf-psych outfit, and How Dare You That’s My Mother You’re Talking About meld psychedelic,stoner, rock and roll, through to Soeur traversing the fringes of rock music. Oh Man The Mountain and Chloe Foy also join in the fun at Nozstock.

In the Velveteen Valley Owen Niblock, Kiki Mellek and Sophia Disgrace have been revealed, and over In Cabinet of Lost Secrets, additions include Swansea Laptop Orchestra, Collective Unconscious, The Demon Barbers, Play It Again Dan, Masked Life Drawing, Deaf Pictures and Nikki Boraston. At Elephant’s Graveyard on Sunday, there’s a vinyl only takeover from Emotion with Delirium, Stinger and Dangerous Davies, and further electronic music across the weekend from Neutron, Jagerhertz, Steve OOOD, Psydigital, Orestis Sundance, Rama and DJ Choppa.
