Welcome to Frequency, an international festival of digital creativity, hosted biennially in the historic city of Lincoln. Since it’s inception in 2011, Frequency has become renowned for city-wide digital takeovers in non-traditional spaces, including exhibitions of site-specific work, live performances, world-premieres, and interactive experiences open to all.
Frequency has hosted over 450 local, national and international artists, exhibiting their work to over 60,000 visitors across four festival editions. Frequency draws the city’s residents and its visitors off their intended path to discover a world of digital, electronic and hybrid art in unusual spaces; mainly the city’s heritage spaces and its shopping precincts, and into its venues, museums and galleries.
Frequency Festival is produced by Threshold Studios, in partnership with the University of Lincoln and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. The event is driven by a dynamic city wide collaboration of public sector organisations, along with support from the business community.
“We are now living in a digital world which is both exciting and challenging. Frequency is an opportunity for people to explore, experience and debate digital culture and creativity.” – Uzma Johal MBE, Co-Director of Frequency Festival
