News about STARMUS FESTIVAL - rescheduling !!! No more in March/2011 but June/2011
BREAKING NEWS!! STARMUS FESTIVAL CHANGES ITS SCHEDULE!!!!! IT IS GOING TO BE 20-25 JUNE 2011!!!! NEW OPPORTUNITY TO COME... SEE THE NEXT TEXT TO KNOW MORE:
In recent weeks we have received many suggestions regarding the desirability of rescheduling for STARMUS Festival. The dates chosen for the month of March 2011 presented for a large segment of space enthusiasts certain problems related to the logistics of travel to the Canary Islands and incompatibilities with annual vacations. Therefore, after consultation with speakers, astronauts, musicians, sponsors and organizations, and in response to these demands, the Advisory Board and the Organizing Committee have decided to set the final date for Starmus Festival for June 20-25, 2011 to facilitate and guarantee the widest participation in this important event.
So people you have more time to book this MAGNIFICIENT EVENT!!! DONÂ´T MISS IT!
Not Jarre there...but Brian May confirm a concert with Tangerine Dream:
Astronomer-musician Brian May will make a guest appearance at Tangerine Dream’s Sonic Universe in Tenerife on 24 June, 2011. Sonic Universe will take place at the Magma Art and Congress Hall in the south of Tenerife as part of the spectacular forthcoming Starmus Festival, now just a few short months away (20-25 June, 2011).
Tangerine Dream will bring a unique feature to the concert with the incorporation into their performance of actual sound effects recorded from the Sun and other stars. Tickets are limited in number and are now on sale (see www.starmus.com for purchase details).
For Brian May, Tenerife has always been a spiritual home from home, inspiring his best creative powers. Queen devotees will know that he began his musical career on this island (he wrote the Queen song ‘Tie Your Mother Down’ during an observing trip to the Teide Observatory while working towards his PhD in Astrophysics in 1971). That was forty years ago, but now May will be back at last on his favourite island, this time with his “red special”! Having begun his PhD studies in Tenerife all those years ago, May finally wrote up his thesis a couple of years ago (in the interim, of course, he became part of the Queen legend!). Apart from his guest appearance at the Sonic Universe, May will also give a talk and participate in a round table discussion on our future in space.
I decided to reopen this topic, because after the 2011 edition, with Brian May and Tangerine Dreams, the festival now returns after 3 years with Rick Wakeman and Brian May, and of course various personalities of astronomy and science as Stephen Hawking and several astronauts and cosmonauts. But anything Jarre. Soon he, who had started it all for a mega concert in the Canary Islands in the past and everything turned this festival ... without him.
