This event has been and gone.
Houghton is a three day festival of art and music taking place on the stunning, Houghton estate in Norfolk on August 11-13 2017.
Curated by the illustrious Craig Richards and produced by the critically acclaimed Gottwood Festival team, Houghton is set to be the UK's only summer festival that fuses art, music and sculpture, whilst its licence uniquely allows musical programming of both sunset and sunrise.
The festival is centred around a beautiful lake, set amongst thick deciduous woodland and plays home to a number of unique venues including an abandoned warehouse, subterranean bowl and a world renowned art and sculpture park.
All artists have been personally invited by Craig to play, with an emphasis on the extra special. Spontaneous back-to-back sets will be encouraged. Longer DJ sets will be the norm. While bespoke world class sound systems will be paired to stages and artists under a licence that allows them to be run as designed. Craig has brought together a musical line-up to challenge, excite and inspire the festival in equal measure. This is a collection of some of the finest selectors to grace any festival in 2017.
Set within the grounds of Houghton Hall, in a never before used area of the estate, it's only a 90 minute train ride from central London. The site provides a naturally artistic setting with a range of venues, as well as the fore-mentioned art and sculpture park. A graduate of St Martins himself, Craig is looking forward to further curating an arts' program to accompany the estate's already impressive work from visionaries including James Turrell, Zhan Wang and Andrew Long.
