    As everyone knows, there’s an on-going clash between European officials and those of us in the digital space. Digital Freedom Festival is about addressing that tension between the policymakers’ fears of digital giants intruding into our lives, upending our economies and governments, and the reality that digital progress always marches on.

    The theme of Digital Freedom Festival is that the internet and connectivity can still make the world a better place.

    From the website:

    Our event is more than just a startup conference. It is a multi-event meeting platform, which takes a special interest in uniting the world of technology. We encourage debate on how technologies can truly “make the world a better place”, creating greater digital dividends for everyone.

    By the current scale of digital/startup/tech events, this is a small one, with about 1,500 people expected. There are 110 speakers booked, so basically one speaker for every 15 attendees. And 50 percent of the speakers are women, whose perspective is often missing in the mega-tech conferences.

    Speakers include:

    • Robin Wauters, Tech.eu

    • Chris Brown and Tanya Soman from 500 Startups

    • Ton van ‘t Noordende from 01 Ventures in Amsterdam

    • Kate Horowitz from Organ House (yeah, it’s that kind of festival!)

    • at least one Bhuddist monk

    There are multiple events going on at the same time on different floors of the venue (as well as “secret speakers”), so be sure to check out the full schedule here.

    Tickets start at 99 euros for startups and you can get yours here.
