Okay, I reopened the topic. As you all know, the original idea of the Starmus Festival was a Jean Michel Jarre concert with Brian May in the Canary Islands during the International Year of Astronomy on 2009. As everyone knows, this did not happen, and in 2011 the original idea became the Starmus Festival.

The first Starmus Festival took place June 20–25, 2011, on Tenerife, and Starmus 1 also featured a spectacular concert event featuring Edgar Froese and Tangerine Dream, along with Brian May who joined the concert for several songs. The show was recorded.

The second Starmus Festival occurred September 22–27, 2014, again on Tenerife, and La Palma, Canary Islands. This time the theme was “Beginnings: The Making of the Modern Cosmos.” . The second Starmus also featured a Sonic Universe Concert, this time featuring Rick Wakeman, celebrated for his years in the rock band Yes, and his current band. They were joined for several songs by Brian May, and again the whole performance was recorded.

The third STARMUS festival took place in 2016 in the Canary Islands, on Tenerife and La Palma from June 27 to July 2. The theme of the third festival was: Beyond The Horizon: A Tribute To Stephen Hawking. The festival closed with the remarkable Sonic Universe Concert featuring Sarah Brightman singing with the Symphonic Orchestra of Tenerife as conducted by Hans Zimmer. The concert also featured performances by Chris Hadfield, Rick Wakeman, Brian May, and the band Anathema.
