Brighton Digital Festival 2017

Brighton Digital Festival is a celebration of digital culture that takes place across Brighton and Hove every September.


2017 will mark the seventh consecutive year for the Brighton Digital Festival.

Brighton Digital Festival is a big, ambitious, month long celebration of digital culture which takes place throughout September. The Festival provides an ideal platform for a community led programme: with an eclectic mix of individuals and organisations from the cultural and digital sectors getting involved and putting on outstanding events.

Throughout the heart of the festival programme, there is a curated stream of arts and education activity that the Festival coordinates. These arts commissions and digital education awards help bolster the Festival’s commitment to widening access and engagement with big ideas in contemporary digital culture.

Last year there were more than 190 events across Brighton and Hove, bringing a combined audience of more than 56,000 – making Brighton Digital Festival one of the fastest growing digital culture festivals in Europe.
