Bio

For over 30 years, Craig Richards has been an avid record collector, visual artist, producer, curator, creator, daydreamer, gentleman of the night and mind-altering selector.

He is widely celebrated for his residency at London's fabric nightclub but more recently for his curation, art direction and co-production of the UK electronic music and arts festival Houghton.

Since leaving art school in the late 1980s, unifying art and music has always been Craig's passion, making him a perfect fit for The Fields. 2017 saw the release of his first art book. This entailed a book of paintings and illustrations depicting every artist who performed at Houghton Festival in 2017, which then gave way to an art exhibition / book launch in the heart of the City of London entitled 'A Show of Heads Inside and Out'.

2022 will be Craig's third year curating The Quarry at Wonderfruit, which sees the return of his Collisions concept.
