The online festival experience is pretty unfamiliar to all of us so we’ve put together some tech guidelines in case you run into any issues streaming our content. Read on for more!


If you have not got any strange settings enabled in your browser, you will be able to access our live events whether you are using Safari, Explorer, Chrome, Firefox or any other browser. But just in case you have settings on that you don’t know about, we recommend that you have more than one browser that you can have as a backup for the browser you usually use in the event of any problem of this sort. So, if you have Explorer, why not download Chrome and Firefox just for the duration of the festival?

Flash Player

Adobe Flash Player is software used to stream and view video, audio and multimedia and Rich Internet Applications (RIA) on a computer or supported mobile device. If you’re having trouble watching any events, make sure you’ve got Flash Player downloaded. Download Adobe Flash Player here


There is no requirement to download Zoom - you can watch all of our debates without Zoom -but we recommend that you download Zoom if possible because it will improve your social festival experience.

If you've not used Zoom before, we recommend having a test call with a friend to make sure your audio and sound work!

To download Zoom and create an account, head to follow the instructions on screen. It only takes a minute!
