Houghton Festival Announces Lineup for Second Edition


Houghton Festival has announced the lineup for its second edition, taking place in Norfolk this August.

Ricardo Villalobos, Andrew Weatherall and Seth Troxler lead the list of names confirmed to play at the festival curated by Craig Richards and produced by the team behind Gottwood.

Also revealed to be performing at Houghton Hall are Nicolas Lutz, Ben UFO, Objekt, Prosumer and Shanti Celeste.

On the return, curator Craig Richards said: "By presenting music, art and a promised experience in an honest and restrained way meant those four days in Norfolk last year were not only magical but they were believable.

"The setting proved to be nothing but perfect. Our aim is to build on the foundations of last year's success, but instead of growing we're sticking to the story with minor improvements and a strong belief in the initial concept.

"Artists, DJs and musicians will be presented with meritocracy and equality. Everyone who performs will be given a chance to shine and everyone who attends will be treated to the best of everything."

The festival will retain its 24 hour licence, meaning the music will run continuously throughout the festival.

The art and sculpture programme will also be revealed soon, though Houghton Estate will host a Damien Hirst exhibition this summer, with some of the famed artist's "most recognisable sculptures" installed in the estate's gardens.
