Lineup Breakdown: What you need to know about Nozstock 2018

This summer will be the 20th year party pilgrims have made their way to a farm just outside Bromyard - and Nozstock 's pulled off its biggest lineup yet to mark the milestone.

The musical line-up was just released, and here’s what you need to know:

fenella whiteley the sugarhill gang 2017 35330306623 o

Headliners in three words

Chase & Status – Cider-soaked anthems.

Goldfrapp – Coolest woman alive.

Grandmaster Flash – Old School icon.   

Potential defining moment

Grandmaster Flash. White Lines. *That* bassline intro.

Set to ease you through your hangover

I mean it’s Noz, so you don’t really ease your way through as much as you power way through. But check out Krafty Cuts’ set with Jurassic 5’s Charli 2na for some sun-drenched, old-school hip-hop, or Kiko Bun’s crate-digging, new-school reggae – both are guaranteed to put a smile back on even the most vitamin-deficient face.

 

Show you’re going to want to be down the front for

Chase & Status. Nozstock has always had a special place in its ravey ravey heart for D’n’B, and to get world-conquering superstars of the 160-180 BPM genre to come out to Bromyard and headline this milestone festival is huge.

It’s going to get all kinds of wild down the front when beat drops during Blind Faith. Prepare yourself. It’s going to be a moment.

 

 

Band/DJ you’ve never heard of but are now your favourite band/DJ

 The Lovely Eggs. Now there’s a strong chance you saw Goldfrapp’s name up top and thought ‘Wow. WOW. Goldfrapp are amazing, and they basically own every festival stage they’ve ever been on’.

You’d be right. And if that was even slightly your reaction, you’re going to walk away from Noz raving about the Eggs’ own brand of lo-fi, female-fronted psychedelia (sound familiar?) even if their medium’s more pop-punk than electronic.

 

Best throwback name on the bill

Would love to say DJ Marky, but Grandmaster Flash basically invented hip-hop, so yeh. Say it with me:

Don’t. Push. Me. Cause I’m. Close. To The. Eeeeedge. 

The novelty act that will 100% make your Instagram story

Oh My God! It’s The Church. Hit play below, and save your souls.
