Garage48 Music took place in Tallinn last weekend. 20 ideas were pitched, and 14 gathered the necessary team behind them to take off. The majority of the ideas were focused on music and entertainment, and on the judges panel was Chris Douridas, a 2-time Grammy nominated music supervisor.
The winner, EasyRider, is a tool for festival and event organizers and promoters who deal with musicians. The service bills itself as, “The easiest and fastest way to create, manage, and share your band’s technical riders.
Second place was Song Boutique, an iPhone app, where by just typing in the name of a birthday boy or a girl it generates a “Happy Birthday” song with that name in it. The app also allows you to record your own personal voice message, and is easily sendable to your friend or family.
The Audience favorite was MEGASPKR, which connects your iOS and Android devices into a mobile speaker cloud. The service plays the same music across multiple devices, allowing you to get a little more depth to your music.
There plenty of other interesting services that didn’t make it into the top three, so those curious should look at the official Grarage48 blog post which gives the full rundown.
