Way Out West Hack Battle

EMI, Spotify, & Luger present a music hackathon like no other.

Combined with one of Europe's best music festivals, Way Out West, hackers will try to create the next greatest music app. The theme of this hack battle is music discovery.

Spots are limited and early RSVPs will also receive VIP access to the Way Out West festival!


Monday August 6th: Pre-meeting, team-building, and drinks.
Tuesday August 7th: API presentations and hacking begins.
Wednesday August 8th: Hacks due. Presentations and exclusive Hackers Ball.
Thursday August 9th - Saturday August 11th: Way Out West festival. Hackers will be provided with access to the festival


The event will take place on the grounds of the Way Out West festival, at Gothenburg, Västra Götaland County. Hacking will occur in the Press Centre at Bel Park. Yes, we have wifi, but it never hurts to bring hard cables!

For more details on the event location, RSVP here.

If you are travelling from outside Sweden, we highly recommend Norweigian and RyanAir, who provide super cheap flights to the two airports serving Gothenburg (City & Landvetter).


As always, teamwork and collaboration are highly encouraged! Sign up to Hacker League and register your teams at the event wiki at hackerleague.org/hackathons/way-out-west-hack-battle. You will be required to submit your hack to this site before demo-ing.

This Hacker League wiki site will also be updated live throughout the event, so bookmark it now!
