Developers come together for a gathering of music and tech at Capitol Royale
Twitch is partnering with Capitol 360 Innovation Lab as a Founding Member to bring you Capitol Royale, a two-day tech conference and hackathon at the iconic Capitol Records tower in the heart of Hollywood — and we’ll be streaming live for the duration.
The event features a hackathon, partner expo, startup demos, guest speakers, a gaming activation, artist performances, and other activities at the intersection of music, technology, and culture.
The 24-hour hackathon kicks off at noon on Saturday with hackers competing to build the most innovative products that reimagine the way music and interactive entertainment is consumed and discovered. Participants will be given access to Universal Music Group’s catalog of over 14,000 tracks that have been cleared for streaming, including never-before-seen original content and archival assets.
They’ll be working with APIs from Twitch and other partner companies, including Consensys, Cloudinary, Spotify, TiVo, 7digital, and Qloo.
In addition to all of that, Twitch is issuing an exclusive Twitch Challenge: Build an interactive experience with music, gaming, and live streaming using Twitch Extensions, and the winning team will receive a grand prize of 100,000 Bits.
Then, as a special capstone to the event, Ninja will be making an appearance to stream Fortnite from the famous Capitol Records Studio A, alongside some of today’s biggest Hollywood stars.
None of this would feel complete without an afterparty — and that’s why we’ll be closing out the weekend with an epic party to launch Ninja’s new soundtrack album “NinjaWerks.”
