Lincoln Frequency Festival returns for 2019

Lincoln will once again be hosting the Frequency Festival of Digital Culture, bringing artists and visitors from across the UK to come together for a showcase of digital creativity and debate on digital culture.

This year’s theme is ‘Disruption = Cultural Reinvention‘ and will be examining the way our relationship with the digital world has changed since the festival began eight years ago.

The festival is also renowned for its city-wide take-over of public spaces including Lincoln Cathedral, the underground Roman Posterngate, cafés, churches, shopping centres and outdoor spaces as well as key city venues and gallery spaces.

Peter Knott, area director for Arts Council England said: “Frequency Festival brings artists, creatives, local and international visitors together in Lincoln to celebrate the very best emerging and developing digital culture.

“The festival gives people the chance to discover new things, where they can explore the digital world through immersive street art, installations, workshops and performances. We’re really pleased to be supporting Frequency in 2019, as it marks its fifth year with a four-day celebration of all things digital.”

The festival will include exhibitions from new and established artists, live performances, site-specific installations, workshops and talks.

Professor Mary Stuart CBE, Vice Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said: “Frequency Festival has evolved into a genuinely unique and innovative offering that connects artists and audiences in exciting new ways. As one of the founding partners behind the original festival in 2011, the University of Lincoln is extremely proud to be support Frequency again as it returns to the city for its fifth iteration in 2019.

“We look forward to seeing how Frequency 2019 will spark debate about one of the fundamental questions of our time: how is the digital revolution changing the way we live, and how should we respond to that as individuals and institutions.”

Programme call outs and opportunities to get involved with Frequency 2019 will be announced in the new year. For more information, visit the website here or sign up to the newsletter and follow #Freq19 on social media.
