Described in some quarters as setting a new benchmark for music festivals, Houghton announces a progressive and eclectic group of names for its third edition on  8th-11th August 2019.

After making arguably one of the most successful debuts of recent times in 2017, the festival opted to make only minor improvements to its simple and refined approach in 2018. In 2019, the festival is  staying true to its ethos and is continuing to incorporate art, music and sculpture into the beautiful surroundings of Houghton Hall, Norfolk.

The musical programme reflects¬†¬†¬†Craig Richards’¬†¬†¬†eclectic taste, while continuing the festival’s tradition of encouraging long extended sets and unique live acts, across bespoke and cutting edge sound systems from German manufacturer¬†¬†d&b audiotechnik.

As always, Houghton casts a spotlight on an array of rising talent and experimental artists. They have also confirmed plans to expand and develop the Pinters stage format, offering a unique 360 soundscape listening environment for jazz, ambient and experimental sounds and inviting artists that promise to explore all of the c orners of the musical spectrum . Estonian violinist and vocalist Maarja Nuut , the rapidly rising Object Blue, UK jazz pioneers Matthew Halsall and the Elliot Galvin Trio, German dubtronica trailblazer Pole, and the abstract and beautiful musings of Soundwalk Collective are all appearing. 

After extraordinary sets last year, the heavyweight returnees include¬†¬†Ricardo Villalobos¬†,¬†¬†Helena Hauff,¬†¬†¬†Ben UFO¬†,¬†¬†Optimo¬†,¬†¬†Hunee¬†,¬†¬†Seth Troxler¬†,¬†¬†Jane Fitz¬†,¬†¬†Pearson Sound¬†,¬†¬†Andrew Weatherall,¬†¬†Joy Orbison¬†,¬†Powder,¬†¬†Midland¬†¬†and¬†¬†Call Super,¬†¬†whilst debut¬†appearances are lined up for¬†¬†Four Tet¬†,¬†¬†Bruce,¬†¬†¬†DJ Stingray¬†¬†and¬†¬†Biosphere¬†¬†amongst many others, a¬†s Houghton’s lineup extends to include even more of the most influential figures in electronic music.

Jensen Interceptor¬†¬†is one of Australia’s finest electro exports and¬†¬†Mark Ernestus’ Ngadda Rhythm Force¬†¬†is an unmissable live band prospect from the hugely¬†influential¬†techno producer. There are also sets from¬†¬†Carl Finlow¬†¬†as¬†¬†Silicon¬†¬†Scally¬†, Vancouver protege¬†¬†D. Tiffany, Floating Points¬†and¬†uniquely¬†¬†Jerry Dammers¬†¬†of¬†¬†The Specials¬†.¬†¬†Palms Trax¬†¬†showcases his deep-digging gems,¬†Calibre¬†¬†and¬†¬†dBridge¬†¬†offer up their unique strain of thunderous bass music and¬†¬†Gerd Janson¬†¬†will be showcasing his¬†eclectic genre spanning commitment¬†to the scene.¬†¬†Harvey Sutherland¬†,¬†¬†Flanger,¬†¬†DMX Krew¬†,¬†¬†Radioactive Man¬†¬†and¬†acclaimed composer¬†¬†Ricardo Romaneiro¬†¬†all¬†¬†deliver live sets unconfined by genre, with¬†¬†Juju & Jordash¬†¬†uniting with¬†¬†Move D¬†¬†to become¬†¬†Magic Mountain High¬†for a welcome live return.
