Lovebytes is a cultural festival for the digital age. A season of extraordinary events taking place at some of Sheffield's landmark venues and public spaces, from February to June 2010.

The festival opening night takes place at Sheffield's prestigious Winter Garden and Millennium Gallery, 6pm Friday 12 February. The event features a late night opening of the digital art exhibition Code:Craft along with with live performances by Francisco Lopez, Russell Haswell and Mark Fell. These events are free admission, open to anyone and family friendly.

Lovebytes is an annual international festival of digital art, established in 1994, which explores the creative impact of computers, new technology and digital culture. The theme for 2010 is 'digital craft'; looking at creative digital culture in the context of traditional art and craft. Exhibitions include Code:Craft at the Museums Sheffield:Millennium Gallery which forms the hub for a programme of special events between January and June.

Code:Craft is a new exhibition, curated by Lovebytes in collaboration with Museums:Sheffield, which looks at the creative impact of computer programming and how artists are utilising 'open source software' to produce everything from interactive installations to sculpture. With new work by world leaders in this field including C E B Reas, Mehmet Akten and Golan Levin, William Ngan, David Dessens, Daniel Widrig and Daniel Brown, Code:Craft represents a growing, international community of artists who are exploring the fundamental systems of nature, the limitations of computers and, perhaps, the future of art and design.
