The CERN Large Hadron Collider operated during Run 2 (2015-2018) at a beam energy of 6.5 TeV. This period saw an important increase in performance through improvements in the LHC and an increased beam quality from its injectors, leading to a peak luminosity that exceeds the LHC design luminosity by more than a factor two. This contribution will give an overview of LHC Run 2 and the main challenges that were encountered. Finally an outlook will be given on the performance in Run 3 (2021-2023).

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
