In today’s world, tech is king and has revolutionised the way our music and creative industries work. From apps to websites to platforms it can be confusing to understand the difference between all of them, or to understand what is going on behind the screen…

Urban Development’s long running Industry Takeover returns later this week for a ‘Hackathon’ special, taking place at the O2 Think Big Hub in Hoxton. Join them for a day of ‘hacking’ where you will be building your own apps and getting closer to technology. No experience is required and we’ll provide the computers!

We’ll also be joined by guest judges on the day Rich Wilson (Wink Machine) and Chimdi Ekek (HSBC) who will provide their expertise and advice. We also have a special prize at the end of the day where the winning group will get the opportunity to join a round table meeting with the digital team at Universal Music, lead by their Director of Digital Paul Smernicki.

Tickets are available now, priced at £10 (+ booking fee), however if you’re a member of the UD Creatives, entry for you is free! If you’re not a member of the UD Creatives, you can join for just £20 a year, where you’ll gain access to all future networking and business development events for free.

This event is supported by AIM Start Ups.
