Bristol artists completing the decor for Nozstock Festival in Herefordshire

A group of Bristol and Newcastle based artists designed the decor for this year's Nozstock Festival near Bromyard in Herefordshire. The sci-fi themed murals that were 6x15 feet each featured planets, a moonscape, floating cities, a rocket crashing on a u-v mushroom field, an alien lady flying through space on a turtle's back with a tree growing out of the shell and more, inspired by Terry Pratchett's novels. Also, a 6 foot tall 3D man-on-the-moon sculpture fixed to the apex of the Garden Stage featured a moon face with a NOZ15 rocket crashing in his eye, reminiscent of the 1902 silent film by Georges Melies 'Le Voyage Dans la Lun' (copied by the Mighty Boosh and Smashing Pumpkins 'Tonight, Tonight' video). A full week was spent on the festival site before it began, with over 200 crew building and decorating the stages, bars, chillout areas and backstage areas.
