IRON MAIDEN singer Bruce Dickinson was one of the featured speakers at the Campus Party technology festival, which was held late last month in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Video footage of his October 26 appearance can be seen below. Campus Party gathers thousands of computer enthusiasts from hackers and gamers to developers and scientists to explore and share ideas. The event includes lectures on artificial intelligence, augmented reality and Big Data. Founded in 1997, Campus Party is the greatest technological experience of the world, bringing together young geeks and aspiring entrepreneurs in a festival of innovation, creativity, science, digital entertainment and startups. The festival has already made it to ten countries. This was the first time that the week-long, 24-hour-a-day event was held in Argentina. Being lead singer of IRON MAIDEN is just one of Dickinson's many accomplishments. He gained a commercial pilot's license after learning to fly in the 1990s. In 2012 he set up Cardiff Aviation, an aircraft maintenance company which has recently signed an agreement with the Djibouti government to help re-launch their national airline. The Nottinghamshire-born singer has also relaunched interest in Zeppelin-like airships, having invested a reported £250,000 in the world's largest aircraft: a hybrid of a plane, balloon and hovercraft, the Airlander 10. If that wasn't enough, he has also created an aircraft fleet as a one-stop solution for airlines to use. On top of this, Dickinson is also an accomplished international fencer. Having overcome cancer in 2015, the singer is writing his autobiography for release in 2017, crafting a limited-edition beer. This is in addition to the two Trooper beers already in production, which have sold over 3.5 million pints in the U.K. He has been described as a polymath and, adding to his prodigious talents, he now brings together all his business creativity and experience and, as a speaker, shares it with corporate audiences, entertaining, inspiring and motivating them in keynotes around the world.
