Leeds Digital Festival
Leeds Digital Festival is an open, collaborative festival celebrating digital culture in all its forms over a two-week period each spring. Whether you’re interested in Fintech, coding, social media, AI, Healthtech, data, start-ups, digital music, cyber security or AR/VR, we’ve got something for you.
In 2021 Leeds Digital Festival returns for a 6th year! We’ll be hosting our usual two week programme packed full of tech and digital content this autumn, running from 20th September to 1st of October – in the hope that we’ll be able to include a limited number of in-person events in the programme, depending on Government restrictions.
Our two Covid-interrupted Festivals held in 2020 saw us grow on an international level, as our 428 online events across two Festivals welcomed over 45,000 attendees, including from 6 different continents and over 60 countries across the globe. With an ever growing voice and reach, Leeds Digital Festival will continue to celebrate the digital expertise and innovation that is happening in the city on a regional, national and international level.
The Festival has maintained the same collaborative approach since it first began, operating on an open platform system which means that anyone can host an event and it is free to do so. From start-ups to tech giants, anyone with a passion for tech and digital is encouraged to get involved and be part of Leeds Digital Festival 2021.
