About Campus Party

BBC Video by Gareth Mitchell

Campus Party is an annual weeklong, 24-hours-a-day technology festival where thousands of “campuseros” (hackers, developers, gamers and geeks) 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 600 hours of talks, debates, workshops, competitions and hackathons related to science, innovation, digital entertainment and creativity; and hundreds of hours of ad-hoc events planned by participants that 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 180,000 campuseros with annual events taking place in Sao Paulo - Brazil, Bogota - Colombia, Valencia - Spain, Quito - Ecuador and Mexico City - Mexico in addition to special European, Mediterranean Basin and Ibero-America editions.
