Leeds Digital Festival is an open, collaborative celebration of digital culture in all its forms.
Since it was first established in 2016, the Festival has gone from strength to strength, growing in both scale and visibility each year. What began as a few big ideas from tech organisers within the city – backed by the local tech community and a small grant – has evolved into the Festival as we know it today.
An open-platform celebration of all things tech and digital, the Festival harnesses the magic of the Leeds tech ecosystem’s unique collaborative spirit, and showcases the digital enterprise and innovation that is happening in the City on a regional, national and international level.
The programme, which began as a series of 56 events in 2016, has grown to include over 200 events in 2022, and the Festival has gained status as the largest ‘open’ tech event in the UK. With an ever-growing voice and reach, in 2023 Leeds Digital Festival will continue to celebrate the people and organisations who make Leeds and the North such a vibrant hub for digital.
