The good people that made this festival happen
Ideas worth spreading

The TEDxExeterSalon will explore how technology is transforming our world in ways that are exhilarating yet often controversial.Visit site
Extraordinary live experiences
Kaleider brings people together to make extraordinary live experiences, products and services. They play with live performance, installation, and digital often in spaces that aren’t designated arts spaces. They make their own work, produce work, commission new work and provide support for artists to develop, push boundaries and take risks with their ideas.Visit site
An introduction from Councillor Rachel Sutton, Lead Councillor for Culture:
I’m delighted to welcome Lost Weekend to Exeter.
This October great music, playable art, thought provoking ideas and the latest in technology will come together in the heart of the city for a brand new festival. We have manged to join up locations and talent across the city for the first time for what should be a wonderful weekend of discovery and enjoyment.
Creating good things to see and do in the city isn’t something people expect the council to be doing. Here in Exeter, we know how important it is.
I would like to thank everyone who has worked so hard in this first year to help organise what we hope will become an annual major event enjoyed and celebrated by thousands of people.
