SXSW Music Hackathon Championship

The 2016 SXSW Music Hackathon

The SXSW Music Hackathon Championship rages on in 2016, starting one day earlier this year, on Tuesday, March 15, so hackers, mark your calendars!

What’s NOT changing is the 24 straight hours of buzzing, high-tech creativity as scores of hackers use their programming knowledge and our collection of music-tech APIs to develop their industry-changing prototypes and compete for the huge Grand Prize, awarded by our panel of celebrity judges. The SXSW Music Hackathon is FREE and open to the public with approved RSVP coming this fall.

In 2015, joining the hackers as Hackathon Artists-in-Residence were the fabulous Robert DeLong and Neon Hitch, and judges Ty Roberts (Co-Founder of Gracenote) and Alex White (CEO of Next Big Sound), just to name a few.

Congratulations to the winner of the 2015 SXSW Music Hackathon Championship: Dan Noskin a.k.a. Dandelion. Read the full event recap, and check back later this fall for more details about the 2016 SXSW Music Hackathon Championship.
