About Tech-Fest:
Following the huge success of the first Tech-Fest selling out in 2012, UK TECH-FEST went outdoors in 2013 hosting headliners Scar Symmetry, Veil Of Maya and TesseracT. 2014 saw Tech-Fest move to the prestigious Newark Showground hosting Sikth's second show after their reunion, and the following year Tech-Fest 2015 hosted an exclusive UK appearance from Decapitated.

UK TECH-FEST 2016 - The Fifth Anniversary was a milestone in this festival's career, by far their biggest and best edition to date hosting Animals As Leaders and exclusive appearances from Between The Buried And Me and Protest The Hero. 

UK Tech-Fest 2017 is starting off with their heaviest line up to date, with still nearly 40 bands to be announced.

In addition to the music, food, drink, and general festival goodness, there will once again be music demos and workshops on the Double Slit Guitars stage, which is dedicated solely to the After Parties, Q&As and demonstrations with some of the top artists and industry officials. Furthermore, there will be a range of instrument and gear manufacturer stalls from the event sponsors. Tech-Fest has a very large area for onsite camping, only a few minutes’ walk from the music, so there is no need to fight anyone over tent space; they also provide free parking for all attendees and access to decent onsite showers! This, along with a range of food, catering for a wide variety of diets and tastes, as well as a bar with a great selection of drinks at reasonable festival prices, all suitably complements the caliber of the music.
