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 August 31st–September 2nd at Eastnor Castle Deer Park, Ledbury.

We're looking for talks, performances, installations, 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 be a professional or an expert to present: impostors are welcome.


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

You will be guaranteed a ticket to EMF if your proposal is accepted, with the option of a discounted weekend ticket or a free day ticket. We also have some budget to cover transport costs for those who can't otherwise afford to come.

We ask that if you can afford it, you buy a full price ticket - this allows us to use our limited funds to assist those who otherwise could not attend or present at the event.


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