Music Hack Day is a Hack Day specifically for the music industry. The first ever Music Hack Day was organised by Dave Haynes and held at the London offices of The Guardian over the weekend of the 11/12 July 2009.

The event was attended by around 200 developers who had 24 hours to build new hacks or web applications using the API's or tools of 10 participating companies. These companies were 7digital, BBC Music, Echonest, Gigulate, Last.fm, PeoplesMusicStore, Songkick, SoundCloud. The weekend also included workshops from companies like RjDj and Tinker.it and anyone else who wished to arrange one. Many developers stayed overnight at the venue and over 35 hacks were built, submitted and demo'ed by the end of the weekend. Future Music Hack Day's are currently being planned in the US, UK and Germany.

The next Music Hack Day will be happening from September 18-20 in Berlin, Germany. Companies attending include 7digital, SoundCloud, The Echo Nest, Ableton, TracksAndFields and Cloudspeakers.

The first US Music Hack Day has been scheduled for November 21 and 22, 2009 in Boston Massachusetts. Companies attending include SoundCloud, The Echo Nest, Indaba and NPR
