The third edition, "Beyond the horizon - A tribute to Stephen Hawking", catapults this festival as the most ambitious one in science dissemination. 

The theoretical physicist returns to the Canary Islands to announce a star panel of speakers, including twelve Nobel laureates and renowned participants in the space race, who will headline the international festival from 27 June to 2 July 2016
Eminent British physicist Stephen Hawking returned to the Canary Islands to present the third edition of Starmus Festival, the largest international science event to combine music, art and science, which is to be held in the archipelago once again.

Prof. Hawking revealed the panel of attendees who will pay tribute to him at the next edition, under the tagline "Beyond the horizon - A tribute to Stephen Hawking". Also on stage at the press conference were Cristóbal de la Rosa, Deputy Minister for Tourism in the Canary Islands Government; Carlos Alonso, President of the Tenerife Island Government; Anselmo Pestana, President of La Palma Island Government; Manuel Cendagorta, General Manager of ITER; and Iván Lozano, CEO of ATOS Iberia, the latter two being co-sponsors of the festival.

This edition will bring together no less than twelve Nobel prize-winners which exemplifies the event's aim of bridging the gap between the general public and the exciting world of science through these inspiring figures. Another of the highlights will be the 'Ask Hawking' unique competition which, as in the previous edition, will enable members of the public to pose questions to the scientist.

In the words of Professor Hawking: "Starmus is Spain's unique science festival and with this next edition confirms its position as a unique debating chamber for the future of the human race"
Stephen Hawking has expressed enthusiasm for this edition. The festival "will continue to pursue the aim of bringing together some of the best scientists, musicians and artists under one roof: the starry sky of the Canary Islands"

Garik Israelian, founder and director of Starmus, said that the festival "carries a powerful message inspired by the Canary skies, by Mount Teide and the pretty island of La Palma", and expressed pride that the event's values are "spreading around the planet, from amateurs through scientists to some of the world's leading artists".
