About Music HackDay

The challenge

Music is becoming more digital every day. And Music Hackday is the stage to experiment with its changes and develop ideas for the future of music. Join us to reinvent the making, producing, distribution and monetization of music. Your ideas will lead the way!

the mission

Music Hackday is a 2-days event designed to find new ways in reinventing and reengineering music for the digital age. The hackathon will bring together creative developer, designers, musicians and product visionaries. Music Hackday is the perfect environment to test your ideas, to find a team and to launch your own project. Join us if you are an individual musician, developer, designer, non-technical or established hackathon team.

The Reward

The Music Hackday takes place in Berlin in October in a unique venue of music history. Awesome prizes, an international jury and the praise from hacker and music community are waiting. We are looking forward to your ideas to change music in the digital age.
