Nonstock - Our Summer Festival
Nonstock is a 2 day festival for all past, present and future Nonstoppers to enjoy live music from top bands and DJ's, catch up with old friends, meet new friends, and generally have a fantastic weekend in the stunning rural oasis! We've held four fantastic festivals but for 2012 we're taking advantage of our last year living in London (yes, the Nonstop office is relocating!) and hosting a big party to fit in with the London ski show. Full details can be found here: Nonstop Party

Below is a list of last years bands and DJ's...
Joe Driscoll headlining Nonstock - He's back!
Joe played Nonstock two years ago now and was an instant hit. We are delighted to welcome him back and couldn’t be happier he could fit us into his busy tour schedule.
A talented one man band, you won't be able to help yourself love him and dance the night away! Joe has played such festivals as Glastonbury, Bath Fringe Festival, Beach Break live and many more. He’s even been sampled on a recent Nokia advert! Find him here: http://joedriscoll.net/
A 7 man (and women!) band, these guys are a fantastic folk band who will have you swaying and dancing to their awesome sound. They'll be setting the scene for our headliner Joe Driscoll at around 8pm, don't miss it. http://www.flightbrigade.com/
Beats in Abundance (BIA)
After BIA's epic performance at last year's Nonstock festival we had only one option... to beg them to come back. Sure enough, they're signed up for this year's party and are guaranteed to get you bouncing. http://beatsinabundance.com/
Alasdair Peebles (Red Mt 2010) spent much of his time in Red Mt on the decks in locals bars and will be bringing his skills to Nonstock 2011 on the Friday & Saturday night.
Other Nonstock Info...
The Bar: As always, the Nonstock bar will be open on Friday and Saturday night providing you with a variety of tasty, chilled, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Drinks are as cheap as chips!
Food: There will be tasty, well priced food available for both breakfast and dinner over the weekend. We'll update you on what's available and the prices before the event so you know how much to budget for.
Swimming: The venue is situated in a couple of fields on the edge of The River Thames. The river is quite safe for swimming in and can provide a refreshing activity if your head is a little sore the next morning... So don't forget your speedos! (Please note there will be no swimming after dark).
Tents: Please bring your own tent and bedding.
Bands from last year: The Lovely Martin Harley
The Baker Brothers
