Featuring Exhibits, Speakers and Performances by the Black Keys, Common, Les Claypool, N.E.R.D. and More
The first of the two-day extravaganza is an education day free to all Bay Area elementary, high school and college students. With a variety of interactive exhibits, hands-on activities, and guest speakers, the education day boasts a full day of nonstop action and fun, to explore art, space, and the future of the world being built in Silicon Valley.
"This year's free education day is the realization of a vision we've held since the first Bay Area Yuri's Night event at NASA Ames in 2007," noted Karen KoChen of Symbiosis Events. "Our team has brought together some of the Bay Area's leading minds for this unique opportunity to engage and inspire the next generation of scientists."
Day two brings together some of the biggest acts in music to the festival on April 10th. With highly anticipated performances by blues rock duo the Black Keys, hip-hop legend and actor Common, musical visionary Les Claypool (of Primus), chart-topping super group N.E.R.D., along with a host of other live performers, the festival will feature dynamic art installations, flying demonstrations, special guest speakers from NASA and more.
"We're thrilled to be a part of such a progressive and important event that bridges education, entertainment and exploration," said Ankh Marketing's Kamel Jacot-Bell. "We are really excited about the activities and talent lined up for both days and can't wait for people to experience what's in store."
