UPDATE: A site has been picked for EMF 2014: Newton Longville, near Milton Keynes


  1. Site
    1. At least 50,000 sq m/13 acres (this should fit at least 1500 people but this isn't indicative of our planned capacity)
    2. Available for around 11 days (including a weekend) between mid-July and mid-September 2014 (Our setup requirements may be reduced based on available facilities)
    3. Pleasant enough you actually want to spend time there
    4. (Ideally) previous event history at site
  2. Access and Location
    1. Good access for setup vehicles (no low bridges, for example)
    2. Good transport links (proximity to public transport)
    3. (Ideally) located centrally to the UK
    4. (Ideally) near largish shops (e.g. large supermarket)
  3. Facilities
    1. Ability to get a good internet connection (our minimum requirement is 1 gigabit symmetrical, ideally with a layer 2 backhaul to our routers in London, but please let us know of any potential sites and our NOC team can work this out)
    2. (Ideally) Some kind of water supply/sewage connection
    3. Well drained
    4. Space for parking

We don't care about:

  • Most existing facilities (especially electricity). Providing them ourselves is frequently easier than trying to deal with existing services, so they're not a major consideration.
