Music Hackathon

On the back of the first ever major label-sponsored hackathon in June, the Capitol360 Innovation Center is hosting a second challenge to incubate products and services that reimagine music consumption and discovery.

Participating software developers will have access to:

  • Catalog of 14,000 Universal Music Group and Universal Music Publishing Group pre-cleared audio streaming tracks

  • Never before-seen, original content and archival assets

  • Office hours with artists & the creative community

  • Mentorship from veteran industry leaders and Universal Music Group’s technology partners

  • Access to APIs from our hackathon partners including Consensys, Cloudinary, Spotify, TiVo, 7digital, and Qloo

  • An exclusive Twitch Challenge: Build interactive experience with music, gaming and live streaming with Twitch Extensions

  • An exclusive 5G challenge presented by Verizon 5G Labs


To apply, submit your project proposal by Nov 20th. The top ideas will be selected to attend our in-person hackathon on Dec 1-2. The top five teams selected as finalists for the Verizon 5G challenge will be required to spend an additional day prior, Nov 30, at RYOT’s 5G Lab.
