29 June - 3 July 2023 • Newark Showground
UK Tech-Fest is a 4-day music festival with onsite camping held at Newark Showground near Nottingham. We feature the best bands in tech and progressive metal - you'll find all the 8 string guitars and off-beat time signatures at Tech-Fest!
All the bands. ZERO clashes.
We have 60 acts that play across two stages, over four days. The stages run back-to-back with NO clashes - you can literally see every band. There aren't many (if any!) festivals where you can do that.
Workshops, Afterparties & Techeoke!
Alongside the stages we have workshops during the day featuring gear demonstrations, masterclasses and much more. When the last band finishes on the band stage, we have after-parties at night from 11pm - 2am where you can see more bands, cover bands and also the infamous Techeoke (karaoke but Tech-Fest style!)
Unbeatable festival facilities
At Newark Showground we have outstanding facilities for your comfort, such as indoor toilets and showers - not a portaloo in sight! The site is completely flat and fully accessible for all attendees including those with disabilities. The stages are inside hangars, so you won't need to pack your poncho if it rains. Camping is optional, so do the festival your way.
We're one of the most affordable festivals there is and a perfect event to come to for festival-newbies! We're a safe and inclusive space at Tech-Fest where you can let go, be yourself and enjoy amazing music.
P.S. if money is tight but you'd like to attend, you can always be a volunteer steward in exchange for free entry. Complete this stewarding application form and we'll get back to you!
