Digital Shoreditch

Digital Shoreditch is the festival celebrating the outstanding creative, technical and entrepreneurial talent of East London and Tech City. The festival will run from May 21st to June 1st 2012 and will be highlighting the thriving digital and tech talent from Clerkenwell to Stratford, Old Street to Bethnal Green and Dalston to the City and beyond.

Digital Shoreditch’s inaugural festival in 2011 attracted contributions from 180 companies, where 2,000 people attended 50 events in the first week of May. We are planning to showcase 500 companies and individuals for a phenomenal celebration of our collective talent and capabilities, and aiming for attendance by tens of thousands of people in 2012.

The 14-day programme for 2012 will include talks, educational workshops, open studios, exhibitions, family days, awards and parties that will engage, inspire and celebrate the cream of the digital crop.  There will be something for everyone, from the tech-head to the merely curious.

Who's involved?

The programme is designed to explore and represent a wide spectrum of industry areas, and will attract executives working in areas such as advertising, branding, broadcasting, production, film, mobile, gaming, web, and graphics, to facilitate B2B interaction and share best practice. The event also provides a forum for media financiers, politicians, Arts institutes, the press and the public, making it the ideal platform to display leadership, attract new business, gain further brand exposure and recognition, and engage with other pioneering creative developers.

Where will it take place?

The core events will be taking place at a new state of the art temporary structure called ‘Hackney House’. Hackney House will be the networking venue of choice for media, businesses and investors during the 2012 Olympic Games; however, its first assignment will be to play host to the Digital Shoreditch Festival in May.  As the playground of the largest concentration of digital creatives in Europe, this is the ideal place to explore and interact with the latest in digital innovation.


Day tickets are free - if you attend - there is a £90 deposit, which you get back, if you turn up on the day, if you don't - we keep your cash (and use it to commission digital creatives). Your deposit is sort of a bond to make sure you put the day in your diary and make the time to come and join us. If you come, we guarantee you will have an amazing day.

The days are simply fantastic, at the end of which if you'd rather, we will give back your money.
