Campus Party is an annual week long, 24-hours-a-day technology festival where thousands of “Campuseros” (hackers, developers, gamers and technophiles), equipped with laptops, camp on-site and immerse themselves in a truly unique environment.
Recognized as the biggest electronic entertainment event in the world, Campus Party unites the brightest young minds in technology and science under the idea that “the Internet is not a network of computers, it’s a network of people.”
The festival features over 500 hours of talks, debates, workshops, competitions and hackathons related to science, innovation, digital entertainment and creativity. Additionally, hundreds of hours of ad-hoc events are planned by participants and continue throughout the night.
In the past 16 years, the 250 people who attended the first Campus Party have grown into a global community of over 264,000 campuseros with annual events taking place in Brazil, Columbia, Spain, Ecuador and Mexico in addition to two special European (Madrid, Berlin), Mediterranean Basin and Ibero-America editions.
