Brighton Digital Festival, the UK’s largest celebration of digital culture, opens for its sixth consecutive year on Thursday 1 September and runs throughout the entire month.

With more than 160 events taking place in venues across the city, ranging from live digital performances and virtual reality, to tech inspired drag and disability events, the festival promises to be the most diverse yet. More than 100 of the confirmed events are free to attend, offering something for everyone.

Some of the country’s leading digitally focused conferences feature throughout the festival, including marketing conference Dots, Brighton SEO and Story Hack, which addresses the challenges and opportunities theatres and artists face by emerging technologies.

There will also be a day of thought provoking discussions and live music at The Long Progress BarRadio // Future Sounds will address the possibilities that new technologies are opening up in radio and Silver Apples, the godfather of synth music, will perform a rare live set for one night only.

The festival echoes Brighton’s creative and cultural spirit, bringing together likeminded individuals, professionals, designers and artists from around the world.

Laurence Hill, Brighton Digital Festival manager, said: “Brighton Digital Festival celebrates not only digital culture but as we move forward, increasingly supports the diversity of those that produce it and those that consume it. We recognise too that not everyone is technologically privileged and we want to ensure that the opportunities offered by the festival are made available to all.

“Many events are free and offer exciting things to explore and experience for everyone, and everyone is welcome at Brighton Digital Festival.”

Melissa Ray, Brighton Digital Festival coordinator, said: “As a woman working in the digital sector, I am so proud to be part of a festival that promotes diversity and equal opportunities.

“Under-representation of women is a huge issue in tech and the festival aims to challenge that through a wide variety of talks, meet-ups and exhibitions addressing women.”
