In May 2019, the founders of the Blockchain & Metadata Working Group, together with Cologne, will embark on a very special mission. We are proud to announce the first ever French-German blockchain and metadata hackathon: the Blockathon de la Musique.

Participants can expect a vibrating 2-day-event for French and German hackers. Therefore, we are planning for a truly mixed event that is crossing the borders. It’s not just the members, but also the mentors, the jury and the partners that will join us from both countries. More than that, people from art, music, tech, culture, research and law will mix and mingle. This promising event is kindly supported and funded by the Secretary of North Rhine-Westphalia for Economics, Innovation, Digitalisation and Energy.

We are happy to announce that c/o pop is our communication partner. Actually, the cooperation with the long-established, international music business conference c/o pop is exciting and promising — you can expect more news.

All participants should prepare to face challenges in music metadata and blockchain, working with real data. We are happy to welcome you in Cologne. We are looking for creative and innovative approaches, for new ideas, and open minds!

You can find the application form for participants on the event website. Also, we are adding more information soon.

Save the date: 30th April & 1st May, with a session at c/o pop on 2nd May.
