Something Fest.

Queensland's digital, innovation and technology festival.
October 24-28, 2022.

Introducing Something Fest.

We created Something Digital in 2018 because we wanted to bring together and strengthen Brisbane's digital ecosystem. 

Since then we have delivered 115 activations for over 7500 attendees supported by 231 incredible speakers and over 70 partners. ​

We are especially proud of having survived through the past two messy years of Covid and are even more thrilled that in 2022, Something Digital turns 5. What better way to celebrate that milestone than by inviting our good friends to the party.

This is why we want to introduce you to River City Labs and Proptech BNE.  Together, our three organisations are expanding Something Digital into the Something Fest - Queensland's Digital, Innovation and Technology Festival.

Run from the 24 to 28 October, Something Fest will be a pivotal week in all our diaries, as we come together for Australia’s largest innovation festival.
