Line up changes:
Unfortunately we have to announce that Humanity's Last Breath, Port Noir and She Must Burn have had to cancel at the last minute due to a mix of logistical issues! Our sincere apologies go out to anyone who was looking forward to seeing them this year. However they have been replaced by No Consequence, Osiah and The Five Hundred.
This year Tech Fest has the addition of utilities stall stocking everything from camping equipment to fruit, tobacco, toiletries, medical goods, hygienic goods, sweets, grips, rolling papers, lighters, torches, sleeping bags, mats and more!
The food vendors for this year have grown in size with delicious stalls from: Shmoo's Wood-Fired Kitchen (Pizza), Mexican Catering, Burger/Breakfast Van, Fish & Chips, Chinese, BBQ/Grill, Dutch Pancakes and an Ice Cream Van. The Smoky Tentacles are back this year providing a Shisha Lounge chill out area with Teas/Coffee/Toasties/Tea Cakes/Breakfasts! And Redditch Bumper Balls UK are providing a Sumo Zorb Arena at this year's festival.
