Maker Music Festival 2021

0

Every once in a while, an event comes along that sounds so completely appealing and is a perfect fit for the moment. Recently, we’ve been gearing up and getting excited for Maker Music Festival 2021. Founded, organized and hosted by Sherry Huss (Co-founder of Maker Faire and a founding member of LIVE Labs Studio) and Joe Szuecs (founder of Maker Music Festival 2018 and all around maker, software developer and musician), Maker Music Festival 2021 is just what we need to kick off a celebratory and positive summer season ahead. Please check out more on their website here.

In 2018 the first Maker Music Festival took place in Sebastopol, California. A delightful event, it showcased the projects and talents of a select group of music makers from the San Francisco Bay area. There were exhibit booths, live performances, demonstrations and hands-on activities.

Of course, in 2020 the live event landscape dramatically.

So now we’re going virtual. We’re inviting music makers from around the world to join us in a celebration of innovative sound creation.

While submissions for this year’s festival closed on April 15, we encourage to follow the festival accounts on Instagram and Twitter for updates and more. The response so far has been fantastic – and global! We can’t wait to watch live on 5/15.

BoingBoing also recently posted about what you can expect for the upcoming Maker Music Festival. So click through for a preview!
