NODEsurfing aims at connecting artists from all over the world with the local community to provide housing for those traveling from far. Meanwhile it offers the opportunity for a lively exchange with the creative minds gathering at NODE17.

Artists, designers and developers are travelling from all over the world to #NODE17 and are looking for a place to stay. Since Frankfurt is quite expensive, NODE17 offers a hosting program similar to “CouchSurfing”. Hosts that offer one or more sleeping opportunities will not only get free entry to the festival, but also the chance to get in touch with the vibrant, international festival community through the guest.
