Name Intro Bringing
Jon Created another village like this in 2012, back when I knew no one. Doing it again 12 years later to provide a home for people who would like a softer entry to EMF than trying to find a space in the field. 25m 16A ceeform to 4x UK plug extension, some addressable LED strip (no power supply, or anything to drive it though), 3 other people (if you're one of those people, add your name below and decrement that count)
Peter Absolutely new to EMF. Works with computers, makes things in wood, fabric, plastic, occasionally basic electronics and metal work. 25m 16a Ceeform to Ceeform cable, 15m Ceeform to 3x 13a sockets, kettle and stove, two smallish camping tables.
Edwin Also a hacker camp newbie! Software hacker for fun and also for a living, radio ham, sometime musician.

I've ended up tagging along with a friend's village, but still a first-timer and bewildered -- keen to meet others feeling the same!

Bastiaan First time EMF Camp visitor, all the way from The Netherlands. Financial software consultant by day, hardware hacker at night. The Things Network gateway for LoRaWAN coverage
Emily First time at a hacker camp - I know Raz, Robert and Ryan but I want to meet more people! Programmer/content writer, and in my free time I'm into puzzles and trivia.
Raz First time at EMF / any hacker camp, keen to meet other newbies! Computational chemist from London, (very) amateur musician, Emily's boyfriend.
ryan first timer, talk to me about blender. hates capitals
Nyx First timer. Interested in radios, public transport, and homebrew games. 16a splitter, 5 metre 16a to 4x 13a socket cable, camping stove
Andy Fletcher First time at EMF. Off grid in South Shropshire. Love to talk about Solar power, battery systems, inverters, CO2 and climate change. Yes you can run your house purely on solar in the UK :) - Offgrid PV photovoltaic LiFePO4
Niamhishere EMF second timer but now with some different dimensions. Have son, will play arcade games, prefer if the village is on the quiet side for the night.
Tmor Engineer, Tinkerer, and EMF first timer. Interested in anything involving electrons. 40m 16A ceeform cable, 2 way splitter, and short Ceeform to 4x 13A + 2 USB. A wheelbarrow frame trolley thing for moving stuff between site and carpark. Small 20L fridge for drinks, milk, etc.
Steve First timer. Into radios and want to hear about anything that people are excited about.
Roger Regular on C3 and NL Camps, EMF first timer. Identity and mail migration specialist in the M$ bubble by day, electronics, security and general tech enthusiast by night. Event Shelter 4.5mx4.5m, Gas Grill/Cooking station, Switch (12+2x 1GbE), 16A CEE (blue) to CEE 7/3 (SchuKo) + 5 port CEE 7/3
Hopo Connected to Leicester Hackspace, but we havent got a contingency at EMF this year. Last attended in 2016. A creator of things with LEDs, mechatronics, and general tinkering. Looking to discover new exiting people and things. 2mx2m LED curtain, can be freestanding (to walk through) or attached to the side of a marquee/tent. If this can be visible from the 'street' that would be much appreciated. Also, a Thermal Grill Illusion that I would like to be able to set up in the event shelter for people to play with if possible, smaller than a cat-carrier, needs mains. I also have a sand-table, but still needs some (software) work so unsure if to bring that or not.
Soph Connected to Leicester Hackspace as above, First time at EMF. Interested in performance arts and installations, fabric creations and bright colours. Looking to meet some interesting people and do some fun things. We (Hopo & I) can bring an additional gazebo or another little gas stove etc. We have various camping supplies if needed.
Alasdair First time at EMF. I enjoy playing with Arduino and other electronics, as well as generally making things (woodwork, leathercraft, ...). If I've got time I'll try and program an ESP32 attached to an LED strip with a few animations
Jaz First time at EMF. Day job is being an electronic engineer fixing technical problems. The rest of life is trying to figure out what keeps me amused, and do it for as long as it makes me keep ticking. I like making things and fixing thing. Keen to see what EMF is about and what's interesting, and meet some new humans along the way! Camping kit and not much else!
Enda Irish traveling from Berlin with my son Emile both first time to the EMF. I am a designer and visual artist with a ever growing interest in experimental music. My son is a 3D print enthusiast who has become part of the maker scene in Berlin.
Sara First time at EMF. I am a lecturer in computer science, and enjoy making interactive installations. I'm coming with my son. Hoping to meet other friendly people and learn some new stuff.
Rosana Studied telecommunications engineering but ended up working as a software developer. I miss the physical world (electronics & antennas) a lot and I'd like to someday join a radio amateur club and be able to design a self sufficient home. Living in London, moved to the UK with my love life Rafael three and a half years ago but thanks to the pandemic I am just now starting to be part of society and do things with people again. Electric inflator, notebooks and pens, smiles and eager to help & have fun.

Scott Second time to EMF, coming with my friend Dan. Studied electrical & electronic engineering, but ended up in web programming. Looking to learn more about 3D printing before buying my first printer. Would also love to talk to you all about any of the following topics: Home automation/smart home, gaming, electronics, ebikes, programming, and anything about computers, new and old. Camping essentials, coffee machine and some ESP dev boards


We're on IRC Libera.Chat ( at: ##unaffiliated



Maybe a How to EMF workshop? Nothing concrete yet.

Location / Layout


Preferably Camping F or nearby - but not decided yet.


Having the event shelter in the centre, with tents around could be an idea.

Should leave a path out to the main road for ease of access.
