  UK TECH-FEST RETURNS FOR 2014 BOASTING A BIGGER VENUE AND A HUGE FIRST LINE-UP ANNOUNCEMENT
23 March 2014


The Ocean Collective


UK Tech-Fest, Europe's first ever progressive and technical Metal outdoor festival, returns 10-14 July 2014 with a crushing next-generation Metal line-up.

Back for its third year, the festival has upgraded venue to the prestigious Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire. Set to be the biggest ever gathering of bands pushing Metallic creativity and technicality, Tech-Fest's growing popularity is a testament to this burgeoning forward-thinking scene and a sure sign of Heavy Metal's bright future.

The first bands announced are: The Ocean Collective, Vildhjarta (UK exclusive) and Glass Cloud (Europe exclusive).

They are joined by THE SAFETY FIRE, THE EYES OF A TRAITOR (UK exclusive), FELIX MARTIN, MODERN DAY BABYLON, NAPOLEON, NO CONSEQUENCE, DISPERSE, DREWSIF STALIN, FRIEND FOR A FOE, DEADLY CIRCUS FIRE, FROM SORROW TO SERENITY, CARCER CITY, HORD, AEOLIST, BEAR, KADINJA, THE BELLEROPHON PROJECT, LIES OF NAZCA and THE SUN EXPLODES.


Vildhjarta

Official partners are once again Metal Hammer magazine, Ibanez guitars, Double Slit guitars, Zilla Cabs and this year they are also joined by North Custom Drums.

Following the huge success of the sell-out event in 2012, Tech-Fest UK went outdoors in 2013, packing about 1000 people into The Plough events field in Peterborough. Now at the Newark Showground, Tech-Fest 2014 is set to be even bigger with more bands, bigger names and even more activities.

In addition to the music, food, drink and general festival goodness, there will once again be music workshops, Q&As and demonstrations with some of the top artists, as well as instrument and gear manufacturer stalls from the event sponsors Zilla Cabs, North Custom Drums and Double Slit Guitars.


Glass Cloud

Onsite camping will have showers and 24 hour food catering for a wide range of diets and tastes as well as a bar with a great selection of craft beers and ales, suitably complementing the calibre of the music.

With at least another 35+ bands to announce, UK Tech Fest 2014 is set to once again be one of the most unique and exciting festivals of the year.

Weekend tickets cost £59.99 (+£20 for camping) and are on sale now from Ticket Script https://shop.ticketscript.com/channel/web2/start-order/rid/9FA4CMM4

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
