Nozstock The Hidden Valley (1-3 Aug 2014 in Bromyard, Herefordshire, UK) is a curious amalgamation of performance, art, electronic supersounds and good old-fashioned guitar-strumming and drum-bashing.
Regulars will say that despite becoming a ‘proper, grown-up’ festival, Nozstock has retained its intimate, homegrown atmosphere and feels like your own secret festival that your mates have customised just for you. It’s still run by the Nosworthy Family and their trusted friends and has grown organically to be thrice nominated at the UK Festival Awards, with recognition for its status as a good, small, family, dance event with nice loos. It’s choice for a romp, a good knees up and a proper weekend of fun and harmless guilt free debauchery with a medley of eye-opening encounters.
Nozstock’s resident Cinetent, Wrong Directions, showcases a collection of eclectic short and feature films varying through documentaries, live-action narrative tales, music videos, animations and experimental works. Previous reels have been brought to you by, among others, Encounters Festival in Bristol, London-based innovators onedotzero, Manchester-based northern Exposures, quality stalwarts BBC Film Network and by Nozstock The Hidden Valley.
In 2012 Nozstock welcomed Herefordshire-based, experimental visual collective MASH to host the tent. Mash Cinema have been organising events and screenings since 2002 and continue to promote art, film and music through their events locally and internationally.
Most recently MASH co-curated a Live Cinema Foundation event in Haggerston, Forest Hill Film Festival and the Vortex Cinema Club in South East London.
With The Light Surgeons, Max Hattler, Scanone and Modulate in the tents alumni, MASH continue to programme entertaining, educational and challenging content.
