Explore the gaming universe – from all angles.

Established in 2004, the Freeplay Independent Games Festival celebrates the artistic, cultural, counter-cultural, personal, political, social and playful power of games.

Angles is Freeplay’s first in-person festival in five years and you are warmly invited to its big comeback (which doubles as its 20th anniversary event). Bringing together unique and curious talks from a diverse range of speakers, Angles seeks to examine games from academic, creative and experimental approaches.

Whether you’re a stalwart of the scene, an emerging creator, or a curious newcomer, join us as we explore games' expressive and experimental potential together.

Talks, workshops, play-tests, exhibitions and more.

Note: Tickets for Angles Conference also includes entry to Angles Market on 8 June 2024.
