Houghton Festival Norfolk

A celebration of music and art in the Norfolk countryside

The first festival in the UK to secure a 24-hour music license, Houghton’s debut year saw world-class acts descend upon Nelson’s county for over three days of non-stop festivities. The brainchild of Craig Richards and the team behind Gottwood, it was set to promise premium production value, and boy did it deliver, with over nine stages immersed amongst Houghton Hall’s dreamy grounds. With an emphasis on electronic music, Houghton offers everything from genre-defying DJs to live jazz, dance and yoga classes, plus a unique fusion of arts and sculpture. One thing’s for sure: we already cannot wait for the next one!
