Houghton Festival reveals 2019 line-up...

It’s been a highlight of our summer since it sprung onto the Norfolk countryside in 2017, and this year Houghton Festival is back with another hefty line-up.

Having been teased with a steady drop of a handful of artists throughout the day, we’ve finally been rewarded with the full 2019 line-up - and it’s certainly worth the wait.

Houghton regulars: the likes of Hunee, Andrew Weatherall, Ben UFO, dBridge, Donna Leake, and of course, Craig Richards who curates the festival, are set to join forces with a host of exciting new additions, including Four Tet, DJ Stingray, Palms Trax & Object Blue as they descend upon Houghton Hall this summer for another 4-day instalment of non-stop music.

“Spontaneous back-to-back sets will be encouraged and longer DJ sets will be the norm”.

2019 Houghton Festival line-up


Set amongst the truly picturesque Norfolk countryside, Houghton’s woodlands, lakes and fields will once again be transformed into pitch-perfect stages and soundsystems, including The Quarry, a subterranean bowl and Terminus, the ‘secret stage’ sunk in the woodland.

A celebration of not only music but of art too: past years’ have enjoyed art activities, sculpture tours and dance and yoga lessons. More information on what’s planned for this edition is still to come…

A rare 24-hour music license, combined with this formidable line-up, the stunning surroundings of Houghton Hall and a distinct lack of phone service - by all means it’s set to be another escapist, music-lover’s dream.

To get yourself in the festival mood, read our review from last year.

Houghton Festival runs 8th-11th August at Houghton Hall, Norfolk - roughly an hour’s drive from Norwich.
