The Mozilla Festival, or ‘MozFest’, one of the largest tech celebrations of the Open Web, is returning to London this month.


MozFest, now in its fifth year, is the UK’s leading alternative tech event dedicated to building a free, open and more democratic internet. Between 24 to 26 October, 2014, MozFest will open its doors to nearly 1,600 experts, inventors, teachers, hackers, students journalists, and web enthusiasts from nearly 50 countries around the world.

During the festival weekend, main stage speakers will include Mary Moloney, Global CEO of CoderDojo; Dame Beeban Kidron, award-winning producer, director and campaigner; and Mitchell Baker, Executive Chairwoman of Mozilla.


Interactive sessions at this year’s festival include a continuation of Mozilla’s highly successful global Maker Party, which taught more than 125,000 people how to build the web through hands-on learning this summer. MozFest’s iteration will have introductory, hands-on sessions for people new to making the web, as well as specialized tracks for teachers looking to learn how to teach the new computing curriculum through hacks, discussions and physical learning.

MozFest will run for three days at Ravensbourne, a media campus located in East London next to the O2 Arena.

  • Friday, 24 October - MozFest officially opens with a Science Fair that highlights a range of interesting people and projects from across the web.

  • Saturday, 25 and 26 October - interactive sessions, hacking and presentations. The event culminates with a closing demo party on Sunday showcasing what was made during the festival.
