The festival organisers (previously involved with the Big Chill) said:

"What excited us when we created the Big Chill was the opportunity to bring art outdoors, out of the galleries. Now with Nova, we want to take that a step further and bring together art from all platforms into the fields with art, music and performances from knowns and unknowns; we have got some fantastic names involved and it's been exciting doing music programming too, there's so much talent out there.”

"Possibly the most important aspect about this event is that all this entertainment is for just 5,000 people.”
