We’re back, bigger, better, bolder!

The Leeds Digital Festival was set up to do two things: to celebrate the incredible talent and innovation we have in the digital and tech sector in the city, and also to encourage collaboration between individuals and companies.

In the few years since it started, we’ve seen it grow from 56 to 115 to 170 events, promoting Leeds as the digital capital of the North. In 2018, there were more tech events in Leeds during the festival than in San Francisco, with 20,000 people attending events across 68 venues. We’ve had speakers and attendees flying in from all around the globe.

Being an open Festival, where any individual or company can put on an event, means that it truly belongs to the city. We’ll help you find a venue, speakers and an audience, but the inspiration and innovation come from all our event hosts and attendees.

We’ve got some amazing events planned and more are coming in every day, so please keep checking the events schedule. Most of the events last year were sold out, so don’t delay booking a ticket!

This is your festival, so please get involved as a sponsor, event host, or as an attendee (or all three!).


We can’t wait to see you at an event.
