Description Geek Faeries is a French festival dedicated to geek culture since 2010, modeled Do It Yourself, dedicated to Internet culture and imaginary worlds. For the seventh edition, a village will be digital and we will-have a booth along with other open source. We were contacted to hold a booth and make demos of Firefox on desktop and free culture in 2015, 80% increase in attendance compared to 2014. In 2016, the event was canceled by decree of the prefecture because of the floods.
