Due to the nature of digifest - venues may change - we would like to give anyone the opportunity to participate and may try and change venues to accommodate levels of interest. Therefore please be responsible about making unused tickets available. It is easy to manage your bookings - just log into Eventbrite - go to the My Tickets tab for your account and cancel, book or join a wait list for sessions. If we are not able to accommodate levels of interest we want to live web stream sessions - of you can not get tickets why not volunteer then you will get to see the session and help make it happen - help others watch on the share live web streaming sites we want to be running throughout the festival. Many thanks The digifest team
