Byline Festival brings together more top independent journalists than ever before - in one forest. Let's hope they see the wood for the trees. And we are delighted to partner with the Front Line Club who are bringing journalists from all around the world.

come, listen and debate with them 

We have three big tent discussions each of the three days at

Media Circus - changes and challenges of the main stream media (and how to fix it)

Echo Chamber - the wisdom and idiocy of crowds on social media and dangers of group think

Data Dome - everything you need to know about dark money, algorithms, blockchains, surveillance and Putin Bots.
