The Festival

The Digital Festival & HackZurich understand digitization as an opportunity to put people at the center of their development. We work to ensure that digitization and technological progress promote the prosperity of society. We create a platform where experts from business, science, society and politics come together. An event where the latest developments are presented, key issues are discussed and valuable contacts are made. This is where visionaries and innovators, masterminds and pioneers, bright minds and alert spirits meet. They all share a belief in what can and must be done.

Our Mission


On September 13th 2024, the Digital Festival in Zurich brings together digital doers. Whether hacker, manager, scientist, programmer or CEO - with us, the focus is on people. We unite hierarchies, functions and industries in one place, build bridges and create the most relevant, interdisciplinary and promising community in Switzerland over three days.


We focus on pioneers and innovators. We bring pioneers and digital doers to Zurich who challenge and rethink existing structures with their ideas. At the Digital Festival, the international tech world discusses the major issues of the digital future - always with reference to challenges and opportunities for the Swiss economy and society.


At the Digital Festival we don't dazzle with buzz words or lectures about what's possible in Silicon Valley. We prefer to create lasting inspiration through exchange and contact with new things. For this we have created platforms where everyone can actively contribute and help shape and where technology can be experienced.
