Event description

Description

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 decided to create an entire festival on those conditions. No amplification, no sound checks, no waiting for bands to plug in; just pure continuous music over multiple areas & stages.

Join us for our Third celebration of everything The Nest Collective is about – amazing music from across the globe in beautiful, characterful settings.

Delighted to be returning to the unbelievably stunning setting of the 17th Century Master Shipwrights Palace in Deptford on the banks of the River Thames. Concerts will happen throughout the house’s grand rooms, riverside boathouse and round the campfire.

UnampliFire brings together some the finest artists in the UK and beyond; making folk, roots and acoustic music.
