Campus Party is a massive global technology festival where innovation, creativity, science and digital entertainment come together 24-hours a day for an entire week.
10,000 hackers/gamers/developers/designers/geeks from 27 countries, all equipped with laptops, camp out on-site in a massive arena where talks, workshops, competitions & hackathons take place simultaneously.
The Campus Party will be held between the 21st and 26th August. UCL is organising a bus to take all the coders, hackers and entrepreneurs from UCL and around to the Campus Party. The bus is free, and includes the entrance and accommodation on a camping tent for 2 people.
