Following the huge success of the sell-out event in 2012, UK TECH-FEST went outdoors in 2013, packing about 1000 people into The Plough events field in Peterborough, and in 2014 moved to the even larger Newark Showground. Returning to Newark in 2015, TECH-FEST 2015 is set to be even bigger with more bands, bigger names and even more activities. In addition to the music, food, drink and general festival goodness, there will once again be music workshops, Q&As and demonstrations with some of the top artists, as well as instrument and gear manufacturer stalls from the event sponsors Zilla Cabs, North Custom Drums and Double Slit Guitars. Onsite camping will have showers and 24 hour food catering for a wide range of diets and tastes as well as a bar with a great selection of craft beers and ales, suitably complementing the calibre of the music.
