STATEMENT AS RECEIVED
It is with very heavy hearts to announce that the 22nd edition of Nozstock set for this summer is being postponed to July 2021.
All of the Nosworthy family – and the extended family and friends who make up the dedicated Nozstock team – at the farm are devastated to have to make this very difficult decision. However, given the unprecedented Covid-19 crisis gripping the country, it is the right course of action for the safety of the public and all the crew and artists who contribute. The UK’s festival season has already been turned upside down, and after much discussion and deliberation, Nozstock The Hidden Valley will now be back next year – better than ever. Two headliners for this year have already confirmed they will be performing Thursday 22nd – Sunday 25th July 2021: Sister Sledge and Andy C along with many more artists.
Noz says: “We are absolutely gutted that it’s come to this, but the safety of all our attendees, our crew, traders and performers is the most important thing by far. At the start of this outbreak we were confident we would be able to go ahead, but as the situation has developed each day it has come to the point where we feel postponing to 2021 is now the right decision. We hope to see everyone back at the farm next year for a right old party, and send our love out to all of our artists, crew, traders and everyone involved with the festival.”
Daughter and festival director, Ella adds: “We will really miss welcoming everyone back to the farm this year, but we’ll be back stronger than ever next year. We are really chuffed that our artists are supporting us with most major acts announced confirmed for July 2021, including headliners Sister Sledge and Andy C. We’ve been overwhelmed by the support of our big Nozstock family, and we can’t wait to bring Nozstock back next year for one hell of a weekend! In the meantime, please stay safe, stay inside and look after your loved ones and your communities until this is all over.”
All tickets and extras will automatically rollover to 2021 so current ticket holders don’t need to do a thing. There’s even an option for fans to make donations. As a family-run, independent festival, Noz, Ella and the family are incredibly grateful for the incredible support being shown by fans so far, which will Nozstock navigate these difficult times.
