Inspired by the NY Monthly Music Hackathon, the Nashville Music Hackathon brings together local musicians, programmers, designers, composers, hardware tinkerers and fans for a day of learning and creating at the intersection of music and technology.
Organized by: Nashville Music Tech
The Nashville Music Hackathon is a free all day event. The day starts with several short educational presentations before shifting to working on projects. Hacking starts with an open mic so participants can share what they will be working on, followed by a period to network and form groups. At the end of the day, everyone will have an opportunity to present what they created.

In short, because we love music and technology as creative, expressive, and challenging endeavors. Technology has always been a driver of music from how we create it to how we consume. Hackathons are an interdisciplinary opportunity to explore problems and create solutions. We hope this will help grow the music tech community in Nashville and create opportunities for others.
Nashville Music Tech was founded in 2014 as a meetup for technolgists and music professionals to discuss and learn about how the future of the music industry. The organization's mission is to create educational and professional opportunities around the confluence of music and technology. In 2017, the focus shifted to an annual hackathon.
