About

About

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.

WHY A MUSIC HACKATHON?

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.


WHO ORGANIZES THE EVENT?
