The musical gathering will take place on August, 2017.
Music eminence Craig Richards just shared the news that he’s involved on the curation of the ‘Houghton Festival’ alongside ‘Gottwood’s Production team. The event is set to be an art and music three days reunion to take place at Houghton estate in Norfolk, UK on August 11-13.
Richards commented – “Some while ago now the guys from Gottwood approached me to curate something new. I’ve always seen myself as more of a collector than a curator. I’m also much more of an artist than an organiser. I made it clear that the people invited to perform would be chosen on merit. All will be chefs not waiters. All are artists whose talent I value immensely. It is my intention that the festival represents the very best in electronic music and those performing are closest to my heart and record box“.
So far in this first edition the lineup includes some heavyweights like Ricardo Villalobos, Nicolas Jaar, VILOD (Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer), Seth Troxler, Floating Points, Andrew Weatherall and Ben UFO. In terms of art and scuplture some artists included are James Turrell, Richard Long, Zhan Wang, Jeppe Hein, Rachel Whiteread, Stephen Cox and Anya Gallacio.
