All 30 places are taken, please add yourself either to the Waiting List or Remote Participation lists. Based on previous experience it’s likely that there will be last-minute cancellations, so there's a good chance you'll get in — and if not, there’s plenty of other great stuff going on in Brighton over the weekend, so there’s no harm in dropping by to see if there’s space.

Waiting List

If you missed getting a spot but are still interested in coming, add yourself to the bottom of the waiting list. It’s likely that there will be last-minute cancellations and there’s a possibility that we might be able to get some extra people in, so if you’re in town please do drop by and see if there’s a space.

You are also very welcome to remote-participate — we’ll have etherpads, IRC and probably some sort of video/audio feed.

We have booked two rooms at the Lighthouse, ‘The Digital Lounge’ which is big enough to take 30 people around tables. We also have a separate meeting room, which can take about 15 people around tables. Lighthouse have allowed us a maximum of 30 attendee’s due to other events in the building.


Some of us are up for meeting for an informal dinner on Friday evening (maybe around 19:30, a little after the dConstruct after-party). Tentative location: Gourmet Burger Kitchen [1]



Brainstorming day. Spaces for Saturday include:

  • The Digital Lounge
    • 10:00 to 15:00 Indiewebcamp

Sunday evening

If you're still around after IndieWebCamp, some of us are up for meeting for an informal dinner or drinks on Sunday evening. Location unspecified as yet.


Projectors and Wifi

The rooms are fitted with ceiling mounted data projectors and Lighthouse will give us access to their guest wifi.


We have a sponsor to provide snacks and drinks during the day, but you will have to find somewhere for your own breakfast, lunch and dinner. The venue is in central Brighton where there are lots of great places for us all to go and eat.


We are looking at getting hold of whiteboards pen paper etc
