Celebrating all forms of digital culture

Welcome to the 2017 Leeds Digital Festival.
Over 6,000 people attended 56 events in 2016, in 28 venues featuring over 175 speakers. This year, we're heading towards an even bigger Festival, with upwards of 100 events and 10,000 attendees.

We're adding new events every day, so keep checking in on a regular basis.

The Leeds Digital Festival is an open platform festival, where anyone or any company can put an event on. If you have a great idea for an event, get in touch and we’ll help you put it on.

Current highlights for 2017 include the return of favourites from last year, such as the FinTech North and Northern UX conferences, coding competition Code in the Dark, and the tech/music mashup Algorave. Speakers confirmed so far include the Northern Powerhouse Minister Andrew Percy MP, Rob Shaw the CEO of NHS Digital, and the CEO and founder of IMDB, one of the world’s most successful websites.
