The captivating city of Bratislava is set to be the venue for the Seventh Edition of Starmus. This year, the festival dives deep into understanding and protecting Earth, offering an unforgettable experience for all. If you are interested in science, you should mark the date in your calendar.

Do you remember the Starmus festival in Norway? Trondheim, the technological capital of Norway, was hosting the fourth Starmus festival on 18–23 June 2017. It was an unforgettable week with true stars and among stars, when we all started to believe that humanity can travel to Mars almost right away. It was simply a breathtaking experience. The theme of the fourth festival was Life and the Universe, and the festival featured eleven Nobel Prize laureates and many astronomers, biologists, chemists, economists, astronauts and artists. Over 2300 delegates attended Starmus IV in Trondheim. If you were not able to attend then (tickets were quite expensive), now it is your next chance. Best scientific festival on Earth is coming back! Starmus VII will take place in Bratislava (Slovakia) from 12 to 17 May. You can still purchase Early Bird Tickets.


The world’s most ambitious science and music festival 

The Starmus International Festival is an international gathering focused on celebrating astronomy, space exploration, music, art, and the natural sciences. It was founded by astronomer Garik Israelian and astrophysicist Brian May (also known as the lead guitarist and backing vocalist of the rock band Queen). The festival has featured multiple well-known astronauts and astronomers. Aim was to make the most universal science and art accessible to the public. The first three festivals were held in the Canary Islands, then it visited Trondheim, Zurich and Yerevan.

One of the biggest fans of the Starmus International Festival was Stephen Hawking. "Starmus is an important and very unique interdisciplinary festival of people working in different fields — astronomers, astronauts, cosmologists, physicists, philosophers, musicians, artists, and biologists who share an interest in the universe, how it began and is now, and how we may explore and use its many facets” he said in 2017.
