The Hybrid Music Lab aims to inspire and challenge the next generation of music activists through a week of talks, workshops and panels from the industry's best. Leading professionals at the forefront of the electronic music landscape dissect essential ideas, forward-thinking visions & pressing concerns. With the Music Lab Horst wants to connect what is locally at stake, and connect this to global concerns that are close to our hearts.

Ambitions of the Hybrid Music Lab

You get to engage with some of the industry's leading voices who share their ideas and visions. Additionally you get the opportunity to connect with likeminded people and further develop yourself and your role in music.
