EMF will be back in 2014 after a one-day event in 2013

Thirsty for more? Check out Maker Faire in April or OHM 2013 in July/August.


Electromagnetic Field is a three-day camping festival for people with an inquisitive mind or an interest in making things: hackers, geeks, scientists, engineers, artists, and craftspeople.

There will be people talking about everything from genetic modification to electronics, blacksmithing to high-energy physics, reverse engineering to lockpicking, crocheting to carpentry, and quadcopters to beer brewing. If you want to talk, there'll be space for you to do so, and plenty of people who will want to listen.

Tell me more! Aside from the organised talks and workshops, attendees are forming villages and planning events of their own, day and night. Wander between tents and you might come across someone teaching safecracking, or accidentally stumble into a late-night jam session using instruments constructed from circuit boards and glowing wire. If you decide to come with friends, maybe you should host something of your own!

The camp will be littered with interesting things to play with and explore; extraordinary vehicles and glowing objects can be found in every corner. No matter what your skill level is, there will always be something to do and someone to talk to at the bar.

As well as the usual camp facilities like hot showers and running water, we're also providing power to every tent, and very fast internet access, both wired and wireless.

EMF is a volunteer effort by a non-profit group, inspired by European and US hacker camps like CCC, HAR, and toorcamp.
