  • The first names are in for Houghton 2020. After a last-minute cancellation in 2019, the UK festival will return to Norfolk's Houghton Hall from August 6th through 9th. DJs such as Ricardo Villalobos, Helena Hauff, Ben UFO, Hunee, Jane Fitz, Powder and Midland will make their return, while newcomers include Four Tet, Bruce, DJ Stingray, Lena Wilikens, Josh Cheon, D. Tiffany and object blue. Houghton curator and cofounder Craig Richards will also DJ. Live sets will come from the likes of DMX Krew, Floating Points, Magic Mountain High and Radioactive Man. Khidja, D-Bridge, Edward and more will play both live and DJ sets. "Last August Mother Nature denied us a big dance," Richards says. "The extraordinary circumstances and the learning curve that followed have only deepened our commitment to making this festival the unique celebration of music, art and good times that it is." Watch our film about the Giant Steps soundsystem's 2019 journey from London to Houghton Hall and back again—including the moment the crew found out the festival was cancelled.
