Whether you are a musician, developer, hacker, artist, thinker, designer or hobbyist – join the Waves Vienna Music Hackday, meet other creative people and spin your ideas around the future of music & technology!

WAVES VIENNA HACKDAY 2015The Waves Vienna Music Hackday took place for the first time in 2015 and was a full success. The 2nd Hackday is taking place Sept 30-Oct 1 at the festival center WUK in Vienna. The spirit of the Waves Music Hackday is to get your heads together in teams to create new ideas – and build them on the same day.

What you create is up to you – anything goes, as long as it is related to music:

  • hack new music apps,
  • create a new musical instrument,
  • make a platform to engage artists and audience,
  • work on a musical performance,
  • make wearable audible fashion,
  • or anything else musical that comes to your mind!

You may find some inspirations from last year’s hacks here and here. This hackday is part of the Waves Vienna Festival, a 3-day festival showcasing emerging European acts with about 15,000 attendees each year. The festival takes place at the wonderful WUK Vienna and also includes a conference and music industry networking sessions. This year, Waves Vienna will again welcome two countries as special guests: Germany and Israel. True to the motto “East Meets West”, there will be a focus on acts from these countries in the live programme. The Waves Vienna Music Conference will furthermore devote a part of its programme to the respective music markets and scenes of these countries.
