Music Innovation Hackathon Headed to New Orleans

Cutting Edge has teamed up with VL Group for the first Music Innovation Hackathon in New Orleans, which will take place during Cutting Edge CE Conference August 26-27.

The 24th annual conference will focus on hot topics in the entertainment industry, offering panels for both new and knowledgeable professionals. Sessions include topics such as music business, entertainment law, film financing and tax credits, Roots Music, and more.

Cutting Edge CE is a project of the New Orleans-based nonprofit Music Business Institute. “The 24th year celebration of the Cutting Edge, in New Orleans, the legendary city of music, is one event you do not want to miss.”

Throughout the hackathon, developers, creative, and musicians will get together to solve problems in the entertainment industry. The goal is to help developers find a way to use music while also utilizing the culture of the city.

An example organizers give is an app that activates songs and information when you travel to a different part of the city.

Based in Chicago and New Orleans, VL Group creates unique music experience through its solutions created to amplify reach and engage audiences.
