It’s always funny to see how life in 2016 was imagined by former generations. Some predictions are eerily close, others now seem off-the-wall bonkers. This two-day festival pulls together experts in a range of fields brave enough to discuss The Future.
Confirmed speakers include multi-award winning stage designer Es Devlin, restaurateur Oliver Peyton, composer and artist DJ Spooky, musician and producer Brian Eno and novelist Will Self. This year's fest is separated into four different themes, Love explores multiple genders and virtual intimacy, Work investigates the future of zero hour contracts, Play looks into new technologies, and Thrive considers out future lifestyles. Also new to 2016 is a collaboration with Roundhouse Radio, an interactive installation that imagines romance in the future.
