Denver’s digital music powerhouse BEATPORT presents the first-ever Denver Music Hack Day Saturday, July 20 and Sunday, July 21 as an official event of the Denver Post Underground Music Showcase, a four-day music festival which happens Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21. Music Hack Day is an international series where programmers, developers, designers and artists come together to conceptualize, build and demo the future of music.
Designed to bring together the local tech community with the global digital music scene, music services such as BEATPORT, Spotify, SoundCloud, Bitcount, Rdio, The Echo Nest and others from across the country will open their APIs to participants who then use the technology to create whatever they can come up with all day, night, and into the next day again.
The Denver Music Hack Day will showcase both the Denver and Boulder area’s thriving talent and is designed to put Denver on the radar of the national digital music industry.
Attending hackers will have free range to develop a variety of software, hardware, mobile, web, instruments and art—anything goes as long as it’s music related. Music Hack Day is an opportunity to share ideas, network, promote APIs and other technology and many attendees have gotten jobs after impressing companies with their coding talent. API’s will open first thing in the morning of the first day; hackers will spend all day creating and demos will be presented the afternoon of the second day.
