James and Bernadeane are long time evangelists for radical life extension and physical immortality. At RAAD Fest, they helped bridge between the hard science and great humanistic purpose of this growing arena. Their expertise in community building is particularly timely as the radical life extension community is rallying to help increase public support at large.

RAAD Fest took place in Sand Diego, California, August 4-7, 2016. The event encompassed a wide variety of topics from the the biology of super longevity, strategies for slowing aging, and regenerative medicines, to artificial intelligence, general health and wellbeing and the best tips for what we can do now to prevent death and live long enough to live forever.

As part of its unique festival offering, RAAD Fest combined this leading edge science and lifestyle guidance with an array of performances by radical life extension artists. These included performance art by West of Berlin and DJ Kevin Brown, songs by vocalists Maria Entraigues-Abramson, Javier Hernandez, Berkley Brown and Chris Sanders, and a short play by Joe Bardin. Those who attended were able to learn, experience, enjoy and delve into a deeper understanding of why and how we can extend our lives indefinitely. All while having a great time and connecting with other like-minded people. And next year’s RAAD Fest promises to be even better.
