Frequency Festival returned to Lincoln from
28th – 31st October 2021 for its 10th year anniversary edition!

Produced by Threshold Studios, Frequency is an international festival of digital creativity, hosted every two years in the historic city of Lincoln. Next edition October 2023.

Since launching in 2011, Frequency has hosted over 500 local, national and international artists, exhibiting their work to over 75,000 visitors.

We’ve presented an imaginative fusion of art, heritage, media and culture, giving everyone the chance to discover a world of digital art. We have popped up in surprising places, filling Lincoln’s historic and hidden corners with creative delights. From shopping precincts to sheds, Lincoln Cathedral to the kiosk, we’ve taken digital art to the people.

At Frequency, new and innovative works by emerging and established artists and creative technologists showcase the best creative talent from across the globe; with immersive exhibitions and interactive experiences open to all.

Frequency is a platform for celebrating the pioneering spirit of digital innovation; sparking debates on digital culture, nurturing talent within the creative industries, and inspiring the digital creative in us all.
