Frequency, Lincoln’s International Festival of Digital Culture returns for its seventh edition
The historic city of Lincoln is set to get a digital makeover when the Frequency Festival returns with a spectacular celebration of digital culture, from 26th-29th October. Frequency Festival will once again see virtual realities merge with Lincoln’s medieval streets.
National, place-based and international digital artists, creatives and technologists will present innovative work showcasing installations, live performance, digital experiences, and energetic discussion.
Visitors will be invited to explore festival zones including The Twilight Zone – where you can explore after dark digital experiences, The Campus Zone – where the University of Lincoln will shine a spotlight on new and emerging talent and will host the festival hub, and The Discovery Zone – where Lincoln’s high street and surrounding areas will showcase digital installations, exhibitions and experiences.
The festival will also feature a series of ‘drop in debates’ and meet-ups, where audiences can hear from those at the forefront of innovation in creative digital placemaking and emerging digital and culture debates with plenty of opportunities to share insights, get your voice heard and network.
Families can expect plenty of interactive and educational fun on Saturday 28th October with a Frequency family-friendly day where we invite you to experience the festival and a chance to get hands on with some of the programme.
Festival Creative Director Samantha Lindley comments: “We are delighted to be bringing Frequency back to Lincoln for four days. Frequency celebrates digital culture and our national, place based and international talent that continue to create unique, thoughtful, playful, and transformative experiences. Throughout the 12 years of the festival, we’ve consistently seen the positive impact it plays in connecting us with our towns and cities by transforming our day-to-day experiences. The festival is open to everyone, and we continue to be grateful to our funders, partners and collaborators for supporting and enabling this to happen and for the audiences who bring it to life. The enthusiasm and joy for past festivals makes us all determined to make this festival our best.”
