Ultrachip 2011

Here are the few details I can confirm for now:

Ultrachip 2011 will be happening over Friday 19th August & Saturday 20th August at The Forest, Edinburgh. Like last year, all elements of the event will be free to attend. Alcohol will be onsale at the venue, so the live music in the evenings will be 18+.

There will be events happening in the afternoon on both days, including chipmusic related workshops, a market, and some kind of gaming event. Full details to follow.

Live music will run from approximately 8pm till 3am, with a selection of different chip acts from around the UK (and beyond?) playing each night. There will also be DJs providing music between acts, and live visuals from some cool guys.

An additional feature this year is an open mic hour. This will run at the beginning of Friday & Saturday night's line-up. Any chip musician in attendance who's not on the bill but wants to show what they can do - this is for you.

To anyone considering attending, I highly recommend you book accommodation as soon as you can. Ultrachip will be happening at the height of the Edinburgh Festival, a time when the city is ridiculously busy. Good luck!

Full details of line-up, times, etc. will be revealed over the coming weeks/months. Also, this ugly website will be getting overhauled. Thanks.


  1. Hi guys!

    Missed last years Ultrachip but would be VERY much interested in playing there this year. How do I go about getting in touch about playing there this year?



  2. Ben, check under 'Contact Details' on the 'About the Event' page.

  3. Thanks, only just found this after leaving the comment, hehe.

    Will be in touch in the next few days as college work is being a pain as usual!

    Thanks again greatly for the swift reply!
