SuperByte is a chiptune, low-tech and 8 bit arts festival. It is a celebration of all things low-tech, DIY and lo-fi, where nostalgia takes a back seat and forward-thinking creativity is encouraged through limitation. Visual artists and musicians use vintage technology to produce mind-blowing audio and visual spectacles which defy the limits of the hardware and create an immersive experience that expands and improves with every edition.

Returning for its third instalment, this year's festival will include two solid days of live chiptune, visual arts and 8 bit/low-tech inspired music from an array of international artists, plus an open stage & pre-party event, a full programme of workshops & demos, a market space, retro gaming installations hosted by The Retro Computer Museum, and a gallery & art space.

SuperByte 2014 is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
