Music Tech Fest is one of the most original and inspiring festivals on our planet. It’s a ‘festival of music ideas’, a creative playground launched in 2012 in an attempt to bring all music tech creators and thinkers under one roof.
In 2016, Music Tech Fest celebrates its 10th festival with a major event in Berlin (Funkhaus, 27-30 May 2016). If you have been at one of their previous festivals, you’ll already know what to expect. If you haven’t, you’re in for a smorgasbord of surprises: experiments, performances, showcases, demonstrations, collaborations. In its previous editions, Music Tech Fest attracted some of the most exciting people from the music technology community (among them Leafcutter John, Tim Exile, Graham Massey, Jamie Cullum, Mike Skinner, Matt Black, etc.) and this year will be no different.
The festival theme is Transhumanism and Music as Extension of the Human Body. We’ll see interactive multisensory performances. Bionic artists will create new musical fashion wearables and much more.
Music Tech Fest is not just an artistic/hacking platform, though. It covers the whole music tech ecosystem, and industry insiders can have exclusive previews of some of the most inspiring products and ideas. In Berlin, the Blockchain technology (probably the hottest topic in the industry right now) will be extensively discussed, in a week-long workshop.
