All about digital

The Festival

Brighton Digital Festival is a celebration of digital culture that takes place across Brighton and Hove every September. 2017 will mark the seventh consecutive year for the Festival.

The Festival operates on an open programme model; the majority of events are organised and produced by individuals. Many of the organisers work and live in Brighton and Hove although more and more event organiser’s travel from beyond Sussex to put on events. Anyone can get involved, all you need to start is an idea!

Get Involved

Throughout the heart of the festival programme, there is a curated stream of arts and education activity that the Festival coordinates. These arts commissions and digital education awards help bolster the Festival’s commitment to widening access and engagement with big ideas in contemporary digital culture.

To find out more about how you can get involved as a sponsor, visit the supporters’ page. Brighton Digital Festival receives funding through a Grant from Arts Council England, as well as support from the local Brighton and Hove City Council and a number of private sponsors.



Brighton Digital Festival is steered by a Festival Consortium, which is made up of volunteers from Brighton based cultural organisations and digital businesses.

The insight, passion and expertise of these Consortium members drive Festival strategy and vision. Their on-going enthusiasm supports Festival growth and ambition, while reflecting the needs and desires of the local community.
