*** Please note this is an 18 and over event***
Tickets now live from
After last years cancelled event that hit all involved hard, the UMF family have worked non stop over the past year to get UMF back on the map. We have now secured a beautiful licensed site in the heart of Kent, Tunbridge Wells (The Garden of England) and at last, we can now invite you all to what we have planned, and to what we believe will be a truly amazing event.
For 3 days/nights we will be bringing you legends from the underground, and new up and coming crews and talent with their own unique take on keeping that special vibe alive to help organise, run, promote, perform and work at this years festival. Without them, none of this would of been possible. You're gonna be in for a real treat :)

STAY UP FOREVER
- Chris Liberator
Perhaps the most loved and respected Acid Techno DJ of all time
It is fair to say that Chris has probably played more squat parties, underground raves, technivals, festivals, club nights, and parties worldwide in his 18 years as a D.J. than any other person alive, and is still completely dedicated to the music and the scene he got involved with when he started doing parties with the other two Liberators, Julian and Aaron back in 1991
- Aaron Liberator
Aaron Liberator, one of the three Liberators, the original Acid Techno DJs
Aaron cut his teeth as a DJ alongside his techno brothers Julian and Chris Liberator. Starting out in 1992 The Liberators were the infamous DJ outfit that came out of the North London squat seen and onto the free festival circuit teaming up with Spiral Tribe, Bedlam and Circus Normal for some legendary parties.
- Sterling Moss
Sterling Moss, the three deck wizard from Stay up Forever
With dynamic musical taste and timing sharper than a razor, Sterling Moss is renowned for his technically explosive DJ style that never fails to electrify crowds the world over.
- Dj Zebedee
Zebedee has been djing in the London underground party scene since 1993, and is world renowned for his Hard/funky/Tribal acid sets.
With almost 20 years DJ experience behind him, and the experience of playing to crowds all over the world – including gigs in Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Colombia, Czech, Finland, Holland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, Spain & Venezuela – ThermoBee is guaranteed to bring his own mix of funkiness to the party.
- Jerome Hill
Jerome got his turntables in 1990 after being inspired by the pirate radio sounds of London. He began buying hip hop, house, breakbeat and early european techno . In 1994 he hooked up with infamous London soundsystem "JIBA" and further honed his scratching and mixing style for which he has now become known.
- Bad boy pete
Pete (“Bad Boy” Pete) got into the sounds of London’s Pirate Radio Hardcore from 1992, after which he got his first set of decks. From then on, his musical journey evolved through early Jungle Techno, Acid Techno, and Hard Techno, all the way to fast BreakTek. He ran his own label Getafix Records from early 2003, while also releasing on some of the respected London, American, and Polish Techno labels.
