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@uktechfest.com

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”

Tech Fest 2020 Has Been Cancelled

The list is ongoing in terms of the cancellations for festivals and shows due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The latest addition is UK’s Tech-Fest.

The organisers broke the news last week where they’ve explained tickets already purchased for this year’s event will remain valid for the 2021 edition of the festival.

They have also stated they will plan to keep intact as much of this year’s lineup for next year as well but the acts are TBC.

You can read the full statement below.

“It is with a very heavy heart that we announce that UK Tech-Fest will have to be postponed.

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.

The new dates are Thursday 1st – Monday 5th July 2021.

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

UK Tech-Fest Team”
