As it says on the Electromagnetic Field site:

We're a non-profit group bringing a hacker camp (like CCC, HAR, and toorcamp) to the UK in 2012. It'll be a bit like a cross between a music festival and a conference with a wide range of talks on geeky subjects.

It's Friday, 31st August to Sunday, 2nd September at Pineham Park in Milton Keynes.

As part of the Electromagnetic Field experience, there will be villages, where like-minded people can join together.

See the Villages page on the EMFCamp Wiki

Nottingham Hackspace would like to have a village, complete with tents, people and hijinx.
