Leeds Digital Festival
Dates: 25 Apr — 29 Apr
Time: 9:00am — 4:30pm
The Leeds Digital Festival is a multi-venue, city-wide festival celebrating digital culture in all its forms, which will take place from Monday 25th to Friday 29th April 2016.
In 2016 Leeds Digital Festival is collaborating with the award-winning Live at Leeds music festival, to create a exciting programme showcasing the hottest musical talent and the latest emerging technologies. The two events will cross over fully on the Friday 29th April, with a major event planned to celebrate the collaboration.
By combining digital themes with Live at Leeds, which attracts over 10,000 people, the organisers hope to bring an engaged audience into Leeds to participate in an event that will crossover between business, digital and music, as seen within successful festivals around the world such as SXSW in Austin, Texas, and OFFF in Barcelona. The overall event will be branded as the Live at Leeds, Music & Digital Festival.
Leeds Digital Festival has support from the digital community of Leeds, Leeds City Council, and TechNorth, the Government’s initiative to promote and support digital entrepreneurship.
Leeds Digital Festival organisers, including volunteers from a number of the city’s digital agencies and businesses in partnership with Leeds City Council, also plan to run Leeds Digital Festival events throughout the year and beyond.
