Fak'ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival

Friday Aug 30 - Sunday Sep 8       45/47 Juta St, Braamfontein
A festival designed for programmers, bloggers, cyber-visionaries, and the terminally digitally curious, the annual Fak'ugesi African Digital Innovation Festival takes place in Joburg's most creative and technologically-innovative neighbourhood Braamfontein. Through a series of seminars, talks, exhibitions, workshops, performances, demonstrations, parties and more, the festival invites its guests to find new ways of looking at Africa's place in the digital revolution.

This year's festival programme includes lots of hands-on gaming and animation workshops as well as hackathon events, virtual reality exhibitions and the super-fun Yami-Ichi (Sat Sep 7 from 10:00-15:00), a quirky flea market where you can find such treasures as a hard drive filled with the finest gifs, circuit boards that flash “your mama”, computer-generated cocktails, and many other unexpected and internet-related things.

Events take place in and around the Tshimologong tech hub at 45 Juta Street in Braamfontein. See the Fak'ugesi website for more details on all scheduled events.
