Electromagnetic Field 2014 - EMF Camp

Electromagnetic Field [1] is a UK camping festival for those with an inquisitive mind or an interest in making things: hackers, artists, geeks, crafters, scientists, and engineers.

This is actually the first day out here for this year (Fri 29th - Sun 31st Aug 2014). It is a lovely site with power to your tent (if you remembered to bring an extension) and Wi-Fi. Tickets are approximately £100 and if you are thinking of driving down, you need to purchase in advance a parking ticket for £15. 

As a side note; as it is not clear on the website, the parking area is a field. Also, to get there you will have to drive through mud, dirt, grass and about 500 yards of rocks which seem pretty sharp. So, be prepared before you decide to drive to EMF. I suggest renting a car for the weekend if you don't wanna risk getting your car out here!

Other than that, pack your tent, some warm clothes, couple bottles of water, a torch, your favourite drinks and you are all set. I suggest you get earplugs as well, especially if it is windy, you wont be able to sleep. 

Plenty of presentations to watch, a few canteens with drinks and food, and workshops. Many different villages [2] and an area for those who want to come with their caravan! This year there is a kids area as well where you can let them play from 10:00 am until 20:00 pm and overseen by professional carers. 

Pick your favourite activity as you go along or plan your day in advance by looking at the schedule on the website.
