The launch of this year’s festival, which is on for a nine day period between 18th-26th October, saw giant projections around the surrounding buildings accompanied with electronic music to match.

Following the theme of “revolution”, the festival will get the visiting audiences to look at the ways that digital technology has changed the way that we interact with the world around us through art, technology and culture.

Frequency first launched in 2011 with more than 100 artists showing their work to an audience of over 32,000 people. The University of Lincoln, Lincoln BIG, Visit Lincoln, Lincolnshire One Venues (LOV), Threshold Studios and Arts Council England all support the festival, with the majority of the funding coming from the National Lottery through Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts scheme.

Barry Hale and Uzma Johal, Directors of Frequency Festival, Threshold Studios said: “The events that shape our world are now both witnessed and organised through digital media.

“This year’s Frequency festival offers artists and curators the chance to present their responses to the theme of Revolution.

“We are honoured to be hosted again by Lincoln, a forward thinking city which offers a canvas as rich in its creativity as it is steeped in history.

“Frequency presents a city in debate, inspiring us to ask how we too can participate in making changes to our world – personal or global, political or creative. ”

Frequency Festival runs from 18th-26th October with a mixture of free and ticketed events at different venues around Lincoln. Visit http://frequency.org.uk/ for more information.
