Music Tech Fest (MTF) is a three-day arts festival and creative space where participants share and "develop new formats of musical performance and expression." It is billed as the 'festival of music ideas'. MTF presents technological innovations and artistic experimentation, performance, new inventions, commercial applications, and academic research. Music Tech Fest events are streamed live online, and videos of individual presentations are made available on YouTube. The festival runs a 24-hour weekend hackathon and an academic symposium known as the 'afterparty' on the Monday following the weekend's event.
