The festival has been designed to help young entrepreneurs form new pathways into digital careers.


Attendees are encouraged to camp out en masse at the 24 hour event.

O2’s innovation team The Lab are also offering a 12 month paid internship to one talented individual in connection with Campus Party.

Projects have ranged from combining giant iPhones with Kinect sensors to rapid app development to real-time Eurovision polling analysis.


Innovators are invited to create something – hardware or software – that subverts the original purpose of a device by making it do something it’s not supposed to do.

Applicants will pitch either a blog or video to the Lab team at Campus Party, where 10 runners up will win free tickets to next years Campus Party.

Deadline for applications is the 6th September.
