UK TECH FEST announced Sikth, Monuments and Jon Gomm as the final bands to join the bill performing at the Newark Showground on 10 – 13 July.
Techfest organiser Simon Garrod said:
“Sikth are arguably the most important band in UK tech-metal. They have inspired pretty much every band on this entire bill, and without them, the UK tech scene would not be anything like it is today. So it is a great honour to have them play, and i hope it feels like a home coming for them!
“It is always a pleasure to have Monuments, who are have also been a massive inspiration to our younger bands, and Jon Gomm is a really big deal for us as his acoustic wizardry adds a whole new dimension to the event. Bring on July 10th!”

Following the huge success of the sell-out event in 2012, UK TECH-FEST 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. 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.
