Starmus is an international festival of science, music and art which took place in Yerevan, Armenia this year. It featured presentations from scientists, astronauts, cosmonauts, Nobel prize winners and unbelievable concerts from the legendary musicians. I was lucky to see Brian May, Rick Wakeman, Serj Tankian, Tigran Hamasyan, Sons of Appollo, Andrey Makarevich, Simon Philips, Graham Gouldman, Armenian Philarmonic orchestra on one stage. Absolutely unforgattable experience, thanks to Starmus for festival organization, everything was great, including sound and light.
