About the Digital Youth Festival (DYF)

Digital Youth Festival (DYF) is an initiative by Africa Beyond 4IR (AB4IR) NPC. It was conceptualised with the intention to create a platform to expose the youth of South Africa (particularly those based in under-resourced communities) to the opportunities available in the digital creative industries world. The inaugural festival will be hosted in three provinces (Gauteng, Limpopo, and Eastern Cape) as a hybrid (physical and virtual) event to accommodate more participants than the venues permit and to adhere to COVID-19 regulations observing. The festival will take place for 2 days in each of the three identified provinces (Thursday and Friday).

The plan for 2022 and beyond is to roll out the festival nationally as a roadshow during the month of June in line with a commemoration for Youth Month in South Africa.
