Event Details

After the success of the annual Starmus Festivals these past 4 years, the festival is back... bigger and bolder than ever! In addition to the Nobel laureates, the festival will feature renowned astronomers, astrophysicists and scientists, notably astronauts Michael López-Alegría, Garrett Reisman, Chris Hadfield and Russell Schweickart, cosmonauts Alexei Leonov and Sergey Volkov, astrophysicists Neil deGrasse Tyson, Kip Thorne, Martin Rees, Jill Tarter and Robert Williams, and physicist Neil Turok.... it promises to be an out-of-this-world affair! With a number of key sponsors now involved, prices have been considerably reduced from 2011 with packages starting at just €250 for residents and €500 for non-residents when booked before the 16th of January 2016. Remember, this is a week long starfest and it's not everyday you get a chance to mix with astronauts and Nobel Prize winners... good value we think! Venues include the Pirámide de Arona - a spectacular building that contains one of the biggest auditoriums in Europe wherein throughout the rest of the year, shows, and music events are performed. Another venue is the Mare Nostrum Resort for the launch party and other venues are yet to be decided. To register and book your place click on the website (above right)
