Day and Night Program
Word on Sound Conference
Word on Sound is a professional development and exchange forum for music protagonists and curious creatives. Programing and partners of Word on Sound facilitate discourse on music and all that it inspires: live events, film, art, fashion, academics, community, political action and of course digital and analog commerce. Word on Sound will mainly take place on the shores of the Spree River: in the Spreespeicher. From 10 am to 10 pm visitors can meet people, do business, network, listen in on panels and discussions or simply enjoy a cocktail on the Spree, take in the stunning scenery and count the boats floating down the river.
