Stay safe!”

2021 UK Tech-Fest Cancelled, Postponed Until 2022

It has been announced, ue to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year’siteration of UK’s Tech-Fest has unfortunately been cancelled and postponed to go ahead in 2022.

At the time of writing it’s uncertain which bands from the 2021 line-up will be confirmed for 2022, but the organisers have released a statement which you can read below.

“It breaks our hearts to bring you this news that UK Tech-Fest 2021 is cancelled. UK Tech-Fest will now take place Thursday 30 June – Monday 4 July 2022. We’ve been exploring all options to make the festival happen this year, but plain and simply there’s just too much stacked against us.

We’re not the first to cancel and sadly we won’t be the last, as the main factor for us all is insurance. We really wish we had a crystal ball and could see what will happen in June. Going by the roadmap, in theory we should be fine, but the fact that the Government haven’t put their money where their mouth is and cough up a Government-backed insurance scheme for the festival and live events industry, says it all. As a small, independent festival we can’t afford to take the financial risk without the security and protection from such a scheme.

And then there’s the bands, many of our international artists have had to cancel their shows and can’t travel to the UK. We’ve explored booking a UK line-up but (while that would be awesome) there’s still the big risk without insurance.

Current ticket holders – your tickets will automatically be valid for 2022 and refunds will be available to those who wish. Thank you to those who rolled their tickets over last year or donated their tickets, if you are able to do so again this year we would be extremely grateful.

For all ticket enquiries check out our FAQs or email

Tickets for 2022 – we’re delighted to announce we have instalment tickets available so you can pay for your ticket monthly from now to June 2022. It’s been a hard year so we hope this helps spread the cost.

If you can support us further we would love you to check out our new merch store – lots of discounts and bundles available!

Stay safe and we’ll see you in Newark next year. Much love, the Tech-Fest Team”

Ghost Road Fest supports not only up and coming artists but the creatives within the industry to. By offering a mentoring programme and paid work experience, it opens opportunity to young people (aged 18-25) to work within a live music environment at a festival’s inagural year.
