It’s The Cogworks' 8th year running the Umbraco UK Festival and we want you to know about it!

This year we’re cruising down Miami South Beach, with a fluorescent neon glow lighting our way to the UK's biggest Umbraco event of the year!

Join us for our very own take on Club Tropicana, at London’s Barbican Centre, for a totally awesome industry event featuring everything Umbraco (and of course lots of coffee!)

More details to follow...
But grab your tickets now ‘cos we’re bringing you an Umbraco 80s throwback!



The Hackathon and Bug Fixathon will give you the chance to get rid of those darn bugs messin’ with your work. The Cogworks crew and some of Umbraco's finest will be there to give you a hacking hand!


We're gathering some top Umbraco talent for 3 streams packed full of interesting talks and workshops, focusing on: development, front-end and design, and Umbraco in business.


As well as access to the full two-day event, this year we’re throwing you a pre-party and an after-party. Get ready to groove, and watch this space for venue locations.

What you get:

Admission to Hackathon & Main Festival

Lunch & Refreshments (bottomless coffee!)

Exclusive UK Fest merch & goodie bag

Access to 3 streams of talks & Workshops

You’ll be joining us at our very own take on Club Tropicana, in Europe’s biggest multi-arts and conference venue.

Head to the Barbican’s main entrance and look out for a fellow Umbracian in a flower print shirt, you will then be guided to our tropical location.

You can reach us via the Hammersmith & City Line, Circle Line, Northern Line and Metropolitan Line from London’s main stations. We’re within walking distance from Old Street, Moorgate and of course Barbican station.
