"Discovery Festival 2011 is the 6th ""science/party night"" in Amsterdam organised by the Very Disco Foundation. On 23 September 2011 from 22:00 pm-04:00 am, a scientific location will be filled with 1500-2000 young people who enjoy fascinating science, new music, the latest technologies, stimulating art and bright ideas. This is specifically brought to them by members of their own generation in a fresh trendsetting party atmosphere.
The general aim of our Discovery nights is to repeatedly show young, passionate and enthusiastic scientists to the public. This display of scientists, especially in a festival and night-time context that the general audience can relate to, helps to create a new and more positive image of the scientist in general, and of young scientists in particular."
