Hardronic Festival

The terrace of Restaurant 3 was once again transformed into the CERN version of Glastonbury on 25 July, for the 20th edition of the CERN Hardronic Festival. This mythical yearly music event gathered over 1000 CERNois, CERNoises and CERNoisettes (the little ones jumping on bouncy castles) for a fabulous hot day in a spirit of summer fairs and good music. Twelve of the best bands in the CERN Musiclub played an assortment of excellent music ranging from country to pop and rock, ending with metal mayhem by midnight, which spread havoc amongst a crowd of students who rocked and headbanged into the night.

Produced by the CERN Musiclub and Softball clubs as a community event, under the motto "Have fun together to work better together", the Hardronic has always been the most popular family entertainment day at CERN.
