CultureTECH festival organisers have announced that ‘Pure Derry’ is to be the official satire partner for this year’s week long showpiece.
The partnership will see the popular news source and local internet sensation Pure Derry cast an eye over the festival and in no way publicise the upcoming Pure Derry book, which shall be in stores for Christmas!
Pure Derry recently broke one of the scoops of the century, with the visit of Jesus Christ to the City of Culture 2013 being caught by Doherty McLaughlin, the face of PD Live.
A Pure Derry spokesperson commented on the link up: “We were extremely honoured to be asked by CultureTECH to cover their festival, especially after we Googled them.
“We found their schedule of events to be truly impressive - mostly because it goes on for 60 something pages - but I’ve promised to take two days off work to read it in full.”
He continued, through a mouthful of garlic chips: “Pure Derry is looking forward to bringing the 2013 CultureTECH festival to our fans, who will hopefully be taken on a journey of figuring out what the hell everyone is talking about as well. Failing that, we’ll just give rooms full of nerds stick for a few days!”
Over the course of the week-long celebration of all things digital, Pure Derry will have over 100 events to peruse, including the Loebner Prize in Artificial Intelligence, the Internet Cat Video Festival, speakers coming from across the world, label showcases, art installations, film screenings, startup launches and parties.
