I did some investigation and maybe I found out some interesting facts.
1. There might be a chance to attend starmus as a volunteer.
In 2017 they started searching for volunteer in mai. You had to work 3 shifts and got the access to starmus festival the time you were not working.
The form to apply as a volunteer for 2017 is still online here:

2. Other chances to attend the concert of jean michel jarre?
On the starmus festival site you can buy tickets for the festival for 900 Euro. This is pretty much.
Right now it is not possible to buy tickets just for the concert.
Starmus Website says:
"Tickets are available for the whole 6-day festival only, no daily passes are allowed."
According to the starmus website the concert of jean michel jarre will take place in "samsung hall". Capacity of Samsung hall is 5000 spectators ("up to 5062" is written on the website)
The starmus concert of hans zimmer will take place in "Hallenstadion". Capacity of Hallenstadion is 15.000 spectators.
But why are they chosing so big venues???
According to wikipedia:
300 people attended Starmus I
nearly 1,000 attended Starmus II
over 1200 delegates attended Starmus III
For Starmus IV I could not find any information about attendees.
But even if the festival is still growing I guess there won´t be more than 2000 delegates attending Starmus V.
So once again, why do they choose so big venues?
My guess is:
You will be able to attend just the concerts.
Have a look at the starmus website:
Under the banner for the concert of jean michel jarre you can read:
"Jean-Michel Jarre on Sonic Universe Concert"
Then search for starmus festival on wikipedia.
There you can find a section "Sonic Universe Concerts".
"Sonic Universe Concerts
Open to the general public at large as well as the Starmus Festival delegates, the two Sonic Universe Concerts were held at the Magma Arte & Congresos, an arena in Tenerife. The first concert in 2011 featured Edgar Froese and Tangerine Dream, along with Brian May. Their performance was recorded and produced into a CD entitled "Starmus - Sonic Universe" in 2011 and is the only album to highlight both Tangerine Dream and Brian May. The second concert in 2014 featured Rick Wakeman and his band, accompanied by May. Progressive rock band Nosound also performed in 2014 at Starmus II, with this show recorded and produced into a CD/DVD set entitled "Teide 2390". The Starmus II performance was special as it is the band's first full, live, recorded album."
This makes me pretty shure, that we will be able to attend the jean michel jarre concert.
So I booked my hotel today.
