The new festival curated by Craig Richards is coming this summer.

Legendary afrobeat drummer Tony Allen, Hercules & Love Affair and Joy Orbison have all joined the lineup for Houghton 2017.

Other additions to the lineup include Derrick Carter, Optimo, Raresh, Magda and a live performance from Cobblestone Jazz. Allen’s live set will be a tribute to legendary jazz drummer Art Blakey.

The three-day event, a collaboration between Craig Richards and Gottwood Festival, emphasizes live performances, longer sets and spontaneous back-to-back DJing. Previously announced artists include Nicolas Jaar, Ricardo Villalobos, Floating Points, Nightmares On Wax and more.

Houghton takes place August 11-13 2017. Head to their website for the full lineup and tickets and watch a trailer below.
