Call for Participation

Electromagnetic Field is a UK camping festival for those with an inquisitive mind or an interest in making things. It will be held from June 2nd–5th 2022 at Eastnor Castle Deer Park, Ledbury.

We're looking for talks, performances, and workshops for all ages. We're especially keen to hear from people with different backgrounds than you'd expect to find at a technology conference.

At previous events we've heard about everything from genetic modification to electronics, blacksmithing to high-energy physics, reverse engineering to lock picking, computer security to crocheting, and quadcopters to brewing. If you're enthusiastic about it, we are too! You don't need to consider yourself a professional or an expert to present.


EMF is a non-profit community event, entirely run by unpaid volunteers. All of the ticket cost goes directly towards turning a field into an amazing place to spend a weekend, and all those who attend contribute to making the event a success.

As with all contributors to EMF, speakers do not receive any payment, although we have some budget to subsidise travel within the UK for those who could not otherwise afford it.


You will be guaranteed the opportunity to buy EMF tickets if your talk, workshop, youth workshop, or performance proposal is accepted. There are a limited number of tickets available for exceptional installations.

The guarantee is for two adult tickets: one for you at a 33% discount, and one for a friend or partner at full price. You are also guaranteed as many child tickets as you need.

If you only wish to attend for the day of your talk/workshop/performance we can offer you a free day ticket.


After you submit a proposal, it will be considered by a diverse selection panel across multiple review rounds. For more on the EMF selection process, see our guidance and timeline.

We also have guidance available for those who wish to display installations at EMF.
