The second wave of acts have been revealed for the 20th anniversary of Nozstock - The Hidden Valley, which takes place near Bromyard, in Herefordshire from Friday 20th until Sunday 22nd July 2018.
Curated by the father and daughter duo of Pete and Ella and their huge extended family, Pete says: "I can’t quite believe we are reaching our 20th 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.
