Last month, Houghton made its much-anticipated return.

After four years away, due to weather and pandemic-related cancellations, the music and arts festival – curated by DJ and producer Craig Richards – was back in full swing at its picturesque Norfolk home. Taking place from 11-14 August, the third edition of Houghton saw sets from Ben UFO, Shanti Celeste, Joy Orbison and Afrodeutsche to mention but a few.

The weekend was certainly a milestone edition in Houghton’s history so far, both for overcoming the obstacles that prevented its return until now and for its expert curation. Check out a selection of analogue photos capturing the Houghton festivities, taken by Khris Cowley, below.
