POPULAR Herefordshire festival Nozstock has announced that 2024 will be the last ever year for the event.

Nozstock announced the news on its social media this morning (December 5): "It's been nearly three decades of memories but all good things come to an end, and sadly Nozstock 2024 will be the last. Tickets are available here: www.nozstock.com.

"We love this event and have put everything into it. After the losses incurred over a cost-of-living crisis and Covid, the financial risk is becoming too great. Nozstock has always been an independent event, and although there are changes we could make, the final product is something we don't recognise. But we intend to go out with a bang!


"Expect some of our favourites alongside the usual exciting additions you've come to expect. But we have lots of ideas for different formats and are excited to start planning them. 

"A huge thank you to all performers, traders and most importantly, our crew. They have been the backbone of our event and without them the festival would be nothing.

"A massive thank you to all our ticket buyers for support. You made a drum and bass loving farmer very happy and created a Nozstock family that meant the world to us. How lucky we are to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard."

Nozstock is a music and performing arts festival that takes place annually near Bromyard.
