Nozstock is curated by the father and daughter duo of Pete and Ella, plus their huge extended family. Pete said: “I can’t quite believe we are reaching our 20 th anniversary. It’s been a crazy adventure since we started with just a handful of friends on the farm, and now look where we are! We feel we’ve got a brilliant line-up for everyone this summer, with some really special performances to look out for across all our stages, and in the nooks and crannies. Get set for one hell of a party!”
