HogSozzle Music Festival is a music festival held annually over the last bank holiday of May near Stevenage, England. HogSozzle is a festival which is dedicated to unsigned artists and comedians. It also features a hog roast and a massive paint fight!
The festival-goers are encouraged to wear fancy dress which ties in with their yearly theme. This year their theme is Cosmic Disco. Where the event organisers would love for you to come “sparkling in gems brighter than the stars in the night sky” Who doesn’t love the opportunity to dress up?
The Festival takes place over 3 days and 3 nights all of which are packed full of live music with a range of genres, DJ’s, Comedians and much, much more. So whatever you’re in to you can guarantee that HogSozzle will have something there that’ll please you.
The event is held outdoors and this year is set to be their biggest year yet with over 120 acts,4 stages, the opportunity to camp there and boutique camping, award-winning food vendors, competitions and games, glitter face paint, FREE hog roast and a paint fight. HogSozzle is also a respectable 30 minutes from Kings Cross.
HogSozzle started back in 2010 as a back garden birthday party amongst a group of friends with only 50 people, one hog roast and five DJ’s. The following year it more than doubled to 180 people with an impressive 40 acts. It became clear that the site it was being held at Sherwood Forest wasn’t big enough for the Festivals ever-growing success so in 2012 it moved to a new site near Stevenage where it continues to grow to this day. As a credit to their success HogSozzle was shortlisted for BEST DANCE EVENT by UK festival awards and conference 2016!
