What is it?

Brighton Digital Festival (BDF) is a month long celebration of digital culture which takes place throughout September. The festival provides an ideal platform for a community led programme with an eclectic mix of individuals and organisations from the cultural and digital sectors getting involved and putting on outstanding events

Wired Sussex help to coordinate the festival, supported by a consortium of key players from the creative and digital who are based the city. You can see everyone who is involved here

What value does it offer to the cluster?

The festival supports the local cluster in a number of ways. Not only does it act as showcase, celebrating all of the amazing digital and cultural activity in Brighton it also acts as a platform for training, knowledge exchange and networking. As recognition for the festival grows it also raises Brighton’s reputation as a digital and cultural hub on a national and international level.

How you can get involved

You can attend events which are run as part of the festival. The events range from conferences to workshops and exhibitions. The full programme can be viewed on the Brighton Digital Festival website.

The Festival has an open model, if you have a great idea and can organise an event that celebrates digital culture in any of its forms, you’re welcome to run your own event. There are zero entry costs associated with submitting events, meaning everyone in the community can get involved for free.

Sponsorship of Brighton Digital Festival can open up access to new audiences, talent, and relationships with the City’s most influential digital businesses, cultural organisations, and community members.
