The international Music Hack Day â€” an event dedicated to the technology of music â€” has announced its first ever Dever date as part of the Underground Music Showcase. Music Hack Day, which also takes place in San Francisco, New York, Barcelona and London, calls together programmers, designers and artists to build software, hardware and more for music.
According to the Music Hack Day website, the event “will showcase the Denver/Boulder areaâ€™s thriving tech and startup community, along with its music and food scenes.”
At Hack Day 2012 in San Francisco, hacks included a WinAmp music player for Spotify, virtual concert realities and ways to plan outÂ vacationsÂ with live shows.
In Denver, organizers expect about 150 participants, includingÂ national digital music services such as Spotify, SoundCloud, Rdio and othersÂ opening their products up for hackers to tinker. Local digital music companies and developers such as Beatport, Bitcount, Soundwall and others will also join.
The Denver Music Hack Day takes place from July 20-21 at Galvanize.
