THE Starmus Festival was born with the aim of making the most universal science and art accessible to the public and this, its third event runs from June 27 to July 2 in Tenerife.
Traditionally the perfect symbiosis between astronomy, art and music, STARMUS 2016 will bring together not only the brightest minds from these areas but many others besides, as they debate the future of humanity with scientists, business people at the cutting edge, and celebrities of all kinds.
The stars are really out with keynote speaker Brian Eno and other speakers from all manner of scientific disciplines including Stephen Hawking, Brian May and Brian Cox, astronauts, cosmonauts, mathematicians, Nobel laureates, the great and the good.
Coupled these specialists, there will be performances from an array of musical maestros such as Rick Wakeman, Hans Zimmer, the aforementioned Eno and May as well as Sarah Brightman (who lost her heart to a Starship Trooper) and MC Hawking, who puts the words of Stephen Hawking to his own music and will be promoting the new album ‘A brief history of rhyme’.
