Let’s talk festivals.
Hereford (usually, when we are not just coming out of a global pandemic) has a pretty great summer of music festivals, covering every music genre you can think of. Nozstock (above) , which has been happening in Hereford since the late 90’s is a sonic escape boasting eleven stages of entertainment with surprising sights and intimate, secluded areas of arts and theatre. Unfortunately the 2021 festival had to be postponed, but line up was looking pretty amazing, and organisers are working hard to move the acts to 2022, which should include Sister Sledge, Bill Bailey, Gentleman’s Dub Club and Andy C – it’s going to be a good one.
El Dorado (above) is a boutique festival from the magical minds behind Cirque Du Soul, held in the grounds of Eastnor Castle. El Dorado lays on a weekend of delightful shenanigans, and a diverse musical line-up that spans across everything from house and disco through to garage, drum and bass, jungle and dubstep. Tickets for 2022 are going on sale in November and we can not wait!
Lakefest is another of Herefords music festivals, also held in the grounds of Eastnor Castle. With an array of stages including the ever-popular Mainstage they aim to provide a plethora of music that means regardless of musical tastes there will be something for everyone. With boutique camping on offer, its a great option for those who are not quite so comfortable with “festival life”. This year’s line up includes the legend that is Tom Jones, as well as Razorlight, Seasick Steve and Echo and the Bunnymen.
It’s not just music festivals we have to offer, Hereford also has a lot of great food and drink festivals. After a few years off, we were delighted to hear Hereford Indie Food (above) is happening again this August. Think Urban street food meets Music festival, with local makers and suppliers thrown into the mix, all in the heart of the city centre.
Hereford’s famous Beer on the Wye is also a must, with over 260 beers and ciders available to try if you are serious about for all things beer & cider this festival is for you. Postponed for 2021, the festival will make a welcome return in 2022 and we are ready!
