The Nest Collectives 10 Year Anniversary Unamplifed Festival
Master Shipwrights Palace (Deptford)
23rd April: 4pm till 12pm
Please Note: A couple points before arriving!
Welcome to UnampliFire.. This is not a wild party it is a festival of listening and music appreciation. There are no PAs, it is all unplugged, no sound checks, no line checks, just wall to wall music.
Festival Timing – 4pm – Midnight
The festival will open with music from 4pm and there will be music all day around the venue so make sure you are there from as early as possible so you have as much chance to explore as possible.
Food & Drink
There will be an onsite bar open all day serving a range of drinks (ale, meade, cider, wines etc) & food. There are no cash machines on site so please ensure you bring enough cash to see you thru the day. Artists will also be selling CDs & merchandise. It is not permitted to be bringing your own drink or food onto site.
Waterproofs & Warm Clothes
This is an all weather event.. although mostly indoors and there will be outdoor cover but DO bring waterproof clothing. There will also be a fire but we do also advise you to dress very warm with lots of layers.
We at the Nest Collective have always felt that the experience at our shows when there are no microphones have always been the most intimate and special so we’ve decided to create an entire festival on those conditions. No sound checks, no waiting for bands to plug in; just pure continuous music over 5 areas.
The event will be the 10 year celebration of the NC and sees us return back to the unbelievably stunning setting on the banks of the River Thames, in the 17th Century Master Shipwrights Palace in Deptford. Concerts will happen throughout the house’s grand rooms, riverside boathouse and round the campfire.
With over 30 performances in 8 hours, it’s going to be like no other music event.. we promise!
