Word On Sound
Word On Sound, is a new business and conference platform taking place from September 5–7, 2012. Word on Sound is a professional development and exchange forum for music protagonists and curious creatives.
The platform consists of smaller, more targeted events and moves away from a traditional trade fair experience. Programming 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.
Topics include: digi-digi con, World Nightlife Fund, Green Tech in Action, Denkfabrik, all2gethernow Werkstatt, Musikpädagogik Master Class, Kreativ Kapital and Most Wanted: Music.

Berlin’s best promoters and party presenters are in it together, to ensure that not one ticket holder goes home without a serious music buzz.
The venues are some of the most well-known and established spots the city has to offer, Acts will be announced very soon, The week will then wrap up with a band on September 7th-8th with Berlin Festival
Location and travel
This year Berlin Music Week takes place from September 5–9, nesting in it’s new location, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. This happening neighborhood centers around the Spree’s Osthafen (Eastern-harbor), which is not only an urban architectural wonderland but also a hotbed for music production and music related start-ups and tech. As a happy consequence, in this “kiez” some of the cities best club, pubs, and bars are all within a stone’s throw of one another. Berlin Music Week is embedding itself into this city-central (and sleepless) neighborhood, where music is created and celebrated the whole year ‘round.
