MusicBrainz Summit 14 will happen in Copenhagen, Denmark on September 26–28, 2014.


Spotify and Google are sponsoring our summit again! 7Digital is considering sponsoring us as well.


We're going to spend the weekend days at Copenhagen Business School at Howitzvej 60, 2000 Frederiksberg, Denmark. OSM Google Maps


MetaBrainz will cover the cost of lodgings and all food for the weekend. We're going to arrange 2 houses/flats near each other for us to sleep and relax in after hours. We've put in a reservation request for these two houses: 2 3. The first house will hopefully be rented from 2014-09-25 - 2014-09-29 and the second one from 2014-09-26 until 2014-09-29.

Feedback requested!

Please sign up below if you plan to stay in one of the sponsored lodgings. People attending who work for MusicBrainz' partner companies are requested to arrange for their own lodgings.


Discussion topics

  • Geordi: Workflows & label interactions
  • Sysadmin planning (moving to EU/cloud hosting, reducing self hosted services)
  • How healthy is the MusicBrainz community?
  • Genres: could we finally agree on at least something and implement it in May? (ambitious!)
  • Potential future uses of tracks and track mbids (brainstorming/breakout session?)
  • Official consumer oriented MusicBrainz site (eg. MusicBottle/mbjs): form action plan/get things rolling (another breakout session?). Should this integrate with CritiqueBrainz, and if so how?
  • Release packaging types - is it worth storing this information, and how can we manage the ever-increasing variety?


  • General state of MusicBrainz and MetaBrainz (ruaok)
  • Data format, /ws/3, editable WS exploration (ianmcorvidae)
  • geordi (ianmcorvidae, assuming I don't totally fail at having something decent to show)
  • musicbrainz-style and community improvement (ianmcorvidae)
