Festival Update February

27th February 2017

Leeds Digital Festival 2017 is now just a couple of months away and we are beginning to ramp things up a notch in the build up to make this year’s festival even bigger and better than 2016’s.


We thought we’d give you an update of where we are up to and a preview of what to expect at this year’s festival.


We have over 25 events already booked in and confirmed and more are coming in every day. Some of the highlights returning from last year include: Fintech North, Code In The Dark & The Algorave.


As with last year we have some fantastic sponsors from the Leeds region, a credit to the community spirit within the city and the collaborations taking place to maintain Leeds as the digital capital of the north. Leeds City Council are again supporting the festival along with NHS Digital & Sky Betting & Gaming. Without their support the festival would just not be possible.


We’ll have brochures and posters coming out around town and we’re even taking over the big screens around the city so look out for some of our animations in the run up to the festival. There’s also rumours about a swanky launch party just before the festival but you’ll have to wait till nearer the time for official reports.


As always keep up to date with the latest news and events or if you have a question feel free to message us on our social channels Facebook and using @LeedsDigiFest & #LeedsDigi17 on Twitter. We’ve being even more social this year and also recently launched on Instagram!


If you would like to sponsor or run event as part of the festival then it’s definitely not too late but the sooner you act the quicker we can get you booked in and making some noise about your involvement. Drop us a line and we’ll get back to you with some more information.


That’s all for now!
