When is Antidote?

The Antidote Festival has finished. Thank you to everyone who came in its inaugural year. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

What is Antidote?

Worried about the world? You’re not alone. Politics. Climate change. Money. It’s exhausting – even facts can be alternative now.

This festival is our chance to address all that. Antidote took place on the first weekend of September, and was a time for us to come together to recharge, rethink, take stock, and take action.

From talking problems, to solving them

Every speaker and artist has put their reputation (and in some cases body) on the line, fighting for what they believe in. They’ve used their art, thinking and attitude to create the change they want to see in the world, and we’re hoping that by giving them a platform, we can inspire you to do the same.

Antidote builds on the ground-breaking Festival of Dangerous Ideas, which it replaced in 2017.
