The third Starmus Festival is set to take place on Tenerife and La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain, June 26–July 2, 2016. It is the most incredible science festival in the world and will host a unique blend of science, art, and music that will blow your minds!

The Starmus organizers have alerted us to a price hike: the early bird registration fee, €500, will be raised to €700 on January 15, 2016. So book now! You have four days until the price goes up!

Starmus 3 will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The festival will honor Stephen Hawking and will be titled “Beyond the Horizon: Tribute to Stephen Hawking.”

Not only will Professor Hawking speak at the Festival, but also more than a dozen Nobel Prize laureates and other big-name speakers, including Brian May, Alexei Leonov, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Neil Turok, Brian Schmidt, Robert Williams, Martin Rees, Adam Riess, Kip Thorne, Rusty Schweickart, Harold Kroto, Jill Tarter, Carol Greider, Eric Betzig, David Gross, Robert Wilson, Edvard Moser, Elizabeth Blackburn, Chris Hadfield, May Britt Moser, Richard Dawkins, Brian Cox, and more.

You will observe under one of the greatest skies on Earth, see the largest telescope in the world — the 10.4-m Gran Telescopio Canarias — and experience a mind-blowing Sonic Universe Concert with Brian May, Rick Wakeman, and special guests.

And there are many other uniquely cool features — too many to list! — as well as forthcoming announcements on a keynote speaker, other musical and artistic guests, and much more!

It will be the greatest science gathering in the world!
