Set amongst the sycamore trees, a lake, deers and one of the world’s great sculpture parks, Houghton Festival is a hedonistic playground, celebrating live and electronic music across four days on the charming and beautiful grounds of Houghton Hall. Founded, directed and curated by artist, DJ and Central St Martins alumni Craig Richards, the festival reflects his vision of how a festival should be, with attention to detail and high standards throughout.
