Work & Music Festival: Sound of Spaces

The first ever music and work festival is here. Submerge yourself in all the inspiring aspects of music. Listen, play, learn, jam and dance while you’ll also get some work done.

We have a full program and 4 stages for you to choose from. This day also marks the launch of our Music Room.  The Music Room is where our members can get their productivity boosted by making music, listen to music and get their work vibes going by making great tunes together.
We’ll start the morning with live music on the Main Stage, do teambuilding by creating music together on our Talking Heads stage and learn to play the guitar in  the Music Room. Then we kick-off the afternoon with some live music on our Main Stage, move to the Talking Heads Stage for an inspiring talk on music and the brain but don’t miss the Silent Disco in the Music Room. And if that’s not enough there’s an inspiring entrepreneur talking about the business in music on our Talking Heads Stage. At the same time you can jam with new and familiar faces during a jam session in the Music Room, followed by a live performance on our Main Stage. If you’re like ‘please do stop the music’, you can work in the Focus Area at Spaces Keizersgracht, less than 5 minutes from Spaces Vijzelstraat.
