Electromagnetic Field (EMF) is a non-profit UK camping festival for those with an inquisitive mind or an interest in making things: hackers, geeks, scientists, engineers, artists, and crafters.
Electromagnetic Field 2020 will take place between Thursday 23rd July and Sunday 26th July 2020 in Eastnor Castle Deer Park in Herefordshire. Just like in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018, hundreds of people will gather in a field for three days of talks and workshops covering pretty much everything. In 2016, this included blacksmithing, crocheting, robot dinosaurs, 3D printed 4D shapes, key impressioning, and much more.
To help matters along, we will arrange electrical power, a high-speed internet connection with reliable WiFi, and a bar stocked with real ale and Club Mate.
To get an idea what EMF 2018 was like, you can view the list of talks, workshops and performances and see recordings of a number of them on our Youtube channel. If you are inspired by the past content, please consider giving a talk yourself or running a workshop this year!
The campsite will also have a number of villages, where those with something in common can camp together. Keep an eye on this wiki, and pick a village to join, or start your own.
At each EMF event we give our attendees a programmable badge. In 2018, attendees received a MicroPython enabled TiLDA Mkδ. Information about past badges including TiLDA, SiNE and our next badge can be found here.
