Music Hack Day Returns to Midem for the 5th year!

What is Midem Hack Day?

It's the Music Hack Day showcase event that takes place during the Midem event in Cannes each year. Our chance to showcase awesome hackers from around the world.

What's the format?

Standard hackathon format with a few twists. Only 30 people and slightly more time to polish what you build. It all ends with a showcase event at Midem itself.

Is it free?

You have to get your own flight to Nice, but after that everything is taken care of - accommodation, food, tickets and transport to and from the airport are all included.

Any acceptance criteria?

Have you been to a Music Hack Day anywhere in the world in the past year and built something awesome? Then you stand a strong chance of being there!

Check out last year's intro session

2014's Midem Hack Day saw hackers from across the globe build some of the most ingenious, comedic, and assumption challenge ideas we'd seen in 4 years of running the event. Each year, the invited hackers decide on an overall 'best hack', the 2014 winner, 'DJ Spotify' by Yuli Levtov garnered a huge amount of interest and was presented again at the Midem closing ceremony.
