Future Fest 2020

“The Glastonbury of the future.”

Pat Kane


FutureFest is a celebration of our power to shape the future.

The future is not something that happens to us, but something we can create. FutureFest offers audiences a space to push the boundaries, to connect with other thinkers and to find their own visions for what might lie ahead.
