Our 7th Frequency Festival has come and gone, and we’re thrilled to share the highlights of our four-day digital arts and culture extravaganza in Lincoln.
Throughout the festival, attendees engaged with the emergence of digital art. They interacted with AI, questioned the boundaries of humans and machines, and explored the impact of genetic engineering. It was a weekend where the boundaries of art, culture, and technology blurred, and it was thrilling to be a part of it.
Day 1 – Thursday: The Kick off
A rainy start to the day didn’t deter visitors from heading to Lincoln. The stage was set for four days of innovation, creativity, and immersive experiences.
Our opening night event brought together artists, tech enthusiasts, business, city and culture leaders to celebrate the fusion of art and technology.

As the sun set, we were treated to Surge 360, an incredible contemporary dance experience that left the audience in awe.
