Now in its third year, CultureTECH has become Northern Ireland’s biggest and most exciting festival of creative innovation – covering everything from music to video games, animation to software and visual arts to TV production.
Across one crazy week from September 15th to 21st, around 40,000 people will play games, listen to music, visit galleries, go to seminars, watch films and generally have a great time.
And this year we have some amazing highlights including a huge Minecraft tournament, outdoor video dome, the Ministry of Science stage show, launch of the NW Regional Science Park, Culture Night Derry and a giant fruit orchestra.
MAKE & PLAY
One of Northern Ireland’s biggest gaming events returns bigger and better with a massive 3-day Minecraft tournament in the Guildhall plus free-to-play arcades across the city centre.Throughout the weekend, you’ll also find the
BT Maker Tent in Guildhall Sq, music making activities in the Craft Village, robots, science buskers, Fab Lab, music stages, animation workshops and even an attempt to create the world’s biggest fruit orchestra!
Expect an eclectic blend of musical performances, interactive installations and stunning gallery exhibitions across the week of the festival. Top of the list; a 360° HD video dome will take up pride of place in Guildhall Square, hosting an exciting blend of electronic music and jaw-dropping visual design. You’ll also be able to drop in on Culture Night Derry, soak up the vibe at our Craft Beer Sunday and feed your brain at the Banter Salon “Big Kahunas” meet-up.
LEARN SOMETHING NEW
This year’s industry programme is as diverse as ever with a wide range of conferences, seminars and workshops covering everything from TV to gaming, music production to the performing arts. Even better, they’re nearly all free.
