About OKFestival

Following on from the success of OKFestival 2012, the open knowledge and open data community festival is back! Organised by the Open Knowledge Foundation and owned, in the broadest sense, by the open community, the vision for OKFestival 2014 is to translate “Open Minds to Open Action”. Participants from around the world will flock to Berlin for 3 days of inspiration, learning and creating.

The emphasis at OKFestival 2014 will be on practical participation. It will be a shared, immersive experience where ­attendees can learn, listen, brainstorm, make, hack, watch and explore. The festival aims to engage and inspire, and in turn active participation will shape the event and its outcomes. Read more about the festival’s vision and mission here and browse the programme here.


We are pleased to offer a limited number of press accreditations to journalists and bloggers who would like to cover the event. We would like to get a broad spread of coverage, both geographical and thematic.

Please fill out the form below, and we will get back to you as soon as possible to let you know if your application has been approved. Once approved, press memebers will be able to arrange interviews on request.

Do feel free to email us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
