Description

SPACE ROCKS is a festival of space exploration. Presented in association with ESA, the European Space Agency, it’s a unique gathering of the best and brightest in every scientific and creative field but united by a common passion for the great beyond, and with a focus on fun.

The follow-up to our award-winning 2018 debut event consists of three separate sessions, each with something for everyone from devoted space enthusiasts to the sci-curious.

SPACE ACADEMY, our first session, is aimed at kids of all ages and will highlight the incredible range of space science currently underway.

THE SPACE LAB, our second session, is where the great minds from the world of space science, the arts, and music meet to debate and explore the big questions, and this year we’ll be introducing a few new twists we can’t wait to share with you.

SPACE ROCKS LIVE is our live gig, and will feature visionary music inspired by humankind’s fascination with the great beyond.
