That’s at least what over 80 participiants of Music Hack Day Stockholm think!

Update: Follow Live!

The event taking place next weekend (Jan 30-31) is “Sold Out” gathering various nationalities and close to 10 percent female(!) hackers to give life to new ways to enjoy music online. Music discovery, both on the web and on the iPhone, seems to be a hot topic among the projects, and many have also expressed interest in SR’s API (Swedish public service radio), that will be available for the attendees. With the impressive list of attending companies (Spotify (SWE), SoundCloud (SWE), (UK), Echo Nest (USA), Playdar (UK), Sonos (USA) Bandsintown (USA), Rjdj (AUT/UK), Propellerheads (SWE), Bambuser (SWE), Tunerights (SWE), Songkick (UK), Powerfx (SWE), SR (SWE) ), I can hardly wait for the outcome. We all want to keep on increasing the online music sales, don’t we?

Here’s a sneak preview of the Music Hack Day venue. Check out what’s waiting for you, or what you’re missing out 🙂
