What is RAAD Fest?
RAAD Fest will be the largest gathering of radical life extension enthusiasts yet. RAAD Fest combines the energy and fun of a festival, the empowerment and interaction of personal development, with cutting edge science presented for a lay audience to create the first and best holistic radical life extension event ever.
How many people will there be?
We are expecting to see up to 2000 people, from the US and around the world. We saw 1000 people, from 35 countries, August 2016.
Who is doing this?
RAAD Fest is the biggest initiative of Coalition for Radical Life Extension. Powered by People Unlimited, the Coalition is a not-for-profit organization reaching out to groups and individuals who already have interest in radical life extension and physical immortality, in order to galvanize and focus our energy into a popular movement that is self-sustaining and expansive. This group of early adopting advocates, numbering in the thousands, is forming a platform for influencing a much broader audience, and ultimately the mainstream.

Who should attend?
Everyone interested in the newest life extending science and super longevity strategies. Transhumanists, radical life extension enthusiasts, immortalists, physical immortals, those interested in cryonics, and even just living the healthiest lifespan possible are all invited.
Top scientists, entrepreneurs and thought-leaders will be addressing every aspect of radical life extension, from nutrition and new gene therapies, to the power of personal intention, the sociology of immortality and advancement in artificial intelligence.

RAAD Fest will be a live-only event. We have worked hard to make the event available for everyone and we want you to meet and connect with other enthusiasts and activists in this movement, in person.
Is there an age limit?
That would be silly, wouldn't it? We encourage anyone interested to participate, whatever your age is. Those under 18 are encouraged to attend at a special rate (see answer above).

Interactive presentations featuring scientists, speakers, activists, and enthusiasts, will be happening Wednesday night, Thursday day, Friday day, and Saturday day, and Sunday half-day.
