A Public Conference

Anyone may purchase a pass to attend — the Aspen Ideas Festival is open to all. The Festival features one-on-one interviews, panel conversations, and more.


From Aspen Lectures to debates to one-on-one interviews and more, days are filled from early morning to late evening. Attendees have exceptional opportunities to interact with public officials, artists, scientists, authors, business executives, scholars, economists, foreign policy specialists, entrepreneurs, and leaders of all kinds — on footpaths and sidewalks, over lunch on the lawn or coffee at the espresso bar. The intimacy of Festival gatherings renders the experience unique and unforgettable.

Program Tracks

The Festival is focused around substantive themes that speak to this unique moment in history and guide conversations among thinkers, writers, artists, policymakers, business leaders, educators, and other visionaries from around the globe. Program tracks change every year; read more about our 2022 Program Tracks.

Partnership with NBCUniversal News Group

We’re thrilled to announce we’ll be working closely with NBCUniversal News Group. As the Festival’s new media partner, we’re collaborating with NBCUniversal’s editorial team to create engaging and informative content that features NBC's top talent, share “Aspen Ideas” with new audiences across a range of NBCUniversal platforms from NBC Nightly News to Noticias Telemundo, and work together to promote the kinds of ideas that address and, we hope, inspire our collective future.
