The Young Guns Network’s music and tech event Buzz Jam will return for another year next month. The three day hackathon sees five artists and five coders teamed up and challenged to design and build five new musical instruments for a performance as the finale.

The event will take place at Red Bull Studios from 16-18 Sep, with Sony Music again offering up artists to get involved. Artists so far confirmed for this year’s event are Tiggs Da Author, Nimmo and Tom Walker.

Says Sam Potts, Head Of Radio Promotions at Sony’s Columbia Records, and founder of Buzz Jam: “Tech is the new frontier of the music industry, and with Buzz Jam we connect music artists and creative coders to collaborate on something truly special. Mashing code and music making together in this way creates a unique performance and a profound experience for participants and our partners”.
