UKVF Soundstage: Sponsored by T-Juice

I am pleased to announce that, for the first time, the Festival will feature Live Music. On Saturday and Sunday the UK Vapefest Soundstage will play host to DJs and bands from all over the country and abroad!

T-Juice-LogoAs this is our first sponsored festival, T-juice are sponsoring the Soundstage as a way to give back to the community :)

Over the next four evenings we will be previewing some of the exciting bands and DJs that will storming the stage and spinning the decks at Vapefest.

In the meantime here is our rejected Eurovision Song Contest entry performed by popular beat combo Vic Vaper and the Drippers. I’m sure it would have scored more points than Electro Velvet managed to muster…

Vive le Vape!

Vive-le-Vape

This year, as part of our French outreach program, we’ve invited the French modders collective. They said “Oui”. This is a collection of French Modders who operate as a form of Co-op. You can have a look at their wares at Animodz, Créavap, Mod in France, Vape Prod and Vape Tools.

They will form part of our Modders Village along with others from the UK and Europe. We hope it will be a perfect place for you to view some of the innovation that goes on in the world of mod making :)

Where Everyone Knows Your Name…

Forum-Tents

A lot of visitors to UK Vapefest frequent forums, and many of them have told us that they’d like a place to meet their online friends (and enemies). So we sent out invitations to all the main UK Vaping Forums, offering them pitches for their own little corner of Vapefest.

Four of them managed to get their shit together and crowd-funded their own marquees. If you’re a member of All About E-Cigarettes, Planet of the Vapes, UK Vaperz or the Vape Pit, you’ve got a chance to put faces to the avatars and finally meet the people you’ve been talking to all this time!

The Stealthvape Vapefest Primer

Weirdy Beardies

From the Stealthvape Blog:

“Vapefest is the premier vaping event in the UK. Despite the welcome addition of other things taking place this year, VF15 will remain at the top of the list of must-attends for most vapers. Noobs will be full of questions like:

Who is going to be there?
Will I get to see the man passed out with a straw in his backside?
Are beards compulsory? And,
Should I take enough batteries to power a trans-dimensional portal?

A full weekend of drinking, laughs and vaping beckons. Best of all, it’s a family-friendly event. I can’t speak for others, but I know my children love nothing more than to watch me collapse near a PA speaker clutching a bag of shopping. Admittedly they get to do that most Saturdays in front of the market meat van but here they also get to hold my extensive collection of li-ion batteries…”
