Experience the festival

Join the upcoming pre-event

9th of May 6.15 PM 

 At Tartu or Riga

Discussions in 15+ European countries.

Our fine partners:

A truly hybrid format

We're tired of looking at screens. Combining discussions in the public sphere with digital technologies shouldn't force us to look at small rectangles. We want to break out of the usual virtual event mindset and create a truly immersive pan-European discussion experience.

To participate at HEDF you need to physically come to a physical room, but in that room you'll be digitally engaging with people in other countries who are also physically attending the festival. There will be no audience, everyone is an active participant.
