Will UK Tech-Fest 2020 still be taking place due to Covid-19?
It is with a very heavy heart that UK Tech-Fest 2020 will have to be postponed to Thursday 1st – Monday 5th July 2021.
This was the statement we never wanted to release and it was by no means an easy decision to come to, but to aid in the safety of the public and in times of such uncertainty, it is no longer viable to put on Tech-Fest this year.
We’re really sorry to everyone who was planning on attending Tech-Fest, we know how important this festival is to so many people. We are absolutely gutted to not be able to deliver this year, but the good news is the majority of this year’s bands are already confirmed for next year.
To all existing ticket holders, your tickets will be valid for 2021 and we ask that, if you can, you please support us by rolling over your ticket. However, we understand this is a difficult time and if you’re unable to join us next year or need a refund you will able to get one for the face value of your ticket. All ticket holders will be contacted individually.
Alternatively, you can donate your ticket to support us, which would be hugely appreciated and mean the world to us.
Much love, stay safe and we’ll see you at Newark Showground in 2021 ❤️
