WHAT IS UK TECH-FEST?

UK Tech-Fest is a progressive and technical metal outdoor music festival. The festival was formed in 2011 on the vision of creating a festival centred around musical innovation, creativity and diversity. Since 2012 we have seen headliners such as Sikth, The Black Dahlia Murder, The Acacia Strain, Northlane, Animals as Leaders, Between the Buried and Me, Protest The Hero. Alongside nearly 70 bands across 4 days there will be workshops and after-parties featuring a super jam and the famous Techeoke! Come and join the family, we’ll see you there!
