On site

The 5,000 capacity Nozstock offers eight main stages of entertainment, intimate areas of theatre and more. As well as an acoustic area and bars and café nestled amidst the trees and surrounded by colour, art and madness, expect two dance arenas providing hip hop, drum 'n' bass and trance through to the early hours. A new beefy soundsystem in the Cubicles for the dnb & dubstep. Expect some more surprises in 2011.

The festival as well as better soundsystems Nozstock offers a range of stalls, bars selling cocktails, local ales and ciders, and food outlets plus boutique camping & tipis, and a Supermarche selling all useful supplies for the festival camper. The event offers a range of workshops - free standing, comedy, theatre, arts & crafts, kids, a cinetent, an arts & craft area with sculptures, little Wonderland Kids' Area offering all weekend entertainment for 12s and under, and a chance to jam around the wood fire.

Nozstock's main arena, 'The Hidden Valley', is landscaped around a ramshackle Tudor farmhouse which sits in the centre of the festival site. Here you'll find The 'Garden Stage', which hosts an array of eclectic artists with an electronic emphasis post-sundown. 'The Orchard' boasts the bigger names and party bands and the 'Bandstand' offers experimental electro-acoustica from diverse and unsigned artists.

The converted cowsheds include the 'Cubicles', with sub-thumping drum 'n' bass and dubstep, beside it the Bullpen, offers knees-up housey beats and alternative dance. 'The Coppice' hosts Tribe of Frog. There's also the 'Bantam of the Opera Theatre' which explores another world with live performance, workshops and after-dark experimental cabaret while 'Laughing Stock' bills comedians.

Kids' entertainment occurs off the beaten track and over the bridge where the 'Dingle' is programmed with workshops, theatre, and opportunities to get interactive. Whislts the 'Cinetent' offers late night short films or music videos.

Fancy dress theme

This year's fancy dress theme is 'Twisted Carnival', and festival goers are encouraged to dress up.
