June 27 – July 2, 2016

STARMUS Festival was born with the aim of making the most universal science and art accessible to the public.

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 we debate the future of humanity with scientists, business people at the cutting edge, and celebrities of all kinds.

Join us for an event in Tenerife that rises to a level where others fail!

Under the name of the greatest scientist of the 20th and early 21st centuries, Stephen Hawking, and sponsored by Starmus, the most ambitious Science festival of all time, the Stephen Hawking Science Medal is a prestigious award which recognizes the merit of popular science on an international level.



The television channel is taking part as Media Partner in the prestigious science festival that brings together the leading scientists and thinkers of the moment, including Professor Stephen Hawking, from today onwards through to July 2 in Tenerife and La Palma.   Speakers include the American astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, the presenter of the “Cosmos”…

Stephen Hawking
Keynote speaker Starmus II

“I greatly enjoyed the STARMUS festival. It is a combination of science and rock music, both of which I love. I hope there is a STARMUS next year, and you invite me. In a world beset by so many terrible problems, and so lacking in solutions, STARMUS offers a ray of hope. “

Neil Armstrong
Keynote speaker Starmus I

“Let us hope that our grandchildren at our age can look back and say, “The 20th century was a century of advancement and improvement in technology, and the 21st century was a century of advancement and improvement in human character.”
