Digital City Festival

Digital City Festival (DCF) returned for 2021 from April 12th to 23rd, hosted on the Digital City Network. Its content - which ran across the full two weeks - was broadcast live from MediaCityUK and featured keynotes, panels and masterclasses from global thought leaders.

In 2022 the festival takes place face-to-face once again in Greater Manchester from March 7th - 11th, reuniting the digital sector to celebrate, network and socialise for the first time. Its central event is Digital City Expo (March 9th and 10th), which will bring together thousands of professionals at Manchester Central.
