An art and music festival curated by Craig Richards and produced by Gottwood.

“Some while ago now Gottwood approached me to curate a new gathering in Norfolk. 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 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.” ~ Craig Richards

Houghton is a three day festival of art and music where spontaneous back-to-back sets will be encouraged and longer DJ sets will be the norm. Bespoke world class sound systems will be paired to stages, with music and extended exclusive performances from:
