The Festival is a 3 day celebration of genomics across the spectrum from the lab to the clinic, taking in new research, technology and advances in medicine. Essentially it’s the ultimate genomic gathering. The aim is to unite the different stakeholders of the community around a series of progress-critical topics. We’ve removed the usual boundaries and walls to create a spirit of unity distinct from anything else in the calendar.

We believe in providing an environment for creative scientists to flourish and we encourage those with the ability to make connections between diverse ideas, concepts and data to come and share with their peers. The path to progress is through originating new ideas and through challenging existing concepts and models, and the Festival is the best place to do that.

Just like other great Festivals, it’s not just about our headliners and stage acts, but the full range of activities around the site that give that ‘Festival feeling’ and make the experience memorable. Introducing some of the more unusual elements opens the door to an atmosphere of fun and informality which makes striking up a conversation with your peers and heroes effortless.
