An interactive festival featuring podcast tapings, panels, fireside chats, music, and comedy.

Digital Void Festival: Brooklyn brings the internet to life in an interactive festival featuring podcast tapings, comedy, games, talks, and music!

We’re bringing together academics, creators, comedians, creatives, researchers, and writers to explore the ways the internet influences culture, media, and technology — and how we influence it.

Join us as we explore the blockchain, conspiracy movements, digital identity, digital public space, polarization, memes, the metaverse, social media, streaming and technology, with an all-star lineup!

It’s our chance to celebrate – and interrogate – the internet in real life. Don’t miss a lineup including…
