In just three days, we will welcome several hundred festival-goers to Berkeleyside’s fifth Uncharted Berkeley Festival of Ideas in downtown Berkeley. (There are still a few tickets left, so if you haven’t got one, now’s the time go grab it, and scoop up your friends at work, at school, and in your different social circles, to come with you.)

Here’s what festival-goers can look forward to on Oct, 27-28:

We could go on… but we’ll save it for Oct. 27 at the Freight & Salvage where festival-goers will be picking up their Uncharted badges, grabbing coffee and delving into the excitement (or on Saturday, if they’re coming for that one day).

The Uncharted Festival is more fun with friends. Share the festival website page with them or just send them straight to the ticket page.
