Harkive 2016 – Tuesday 19th July


We’re pleased to announce that Harkive 2016 will be taking place on Tuesday 19th July.

After gathering over 8,000 stories since launching in 2013, Harkive will return for a fourth time to once again attempt to mobilise music lovers around the world. The project invites you to join in by sharing the story of how, where and why you listen to music on 19th July.

Over the next few weeks as we lead up to the big day we’ll be posting some example contributions from a variety of interesting people who work in and around popular music. There are some fascinating people lined up this year, and we hope you’ll find the stories of how they listen to music as interesting as we have.

By gathering these stories Harkive hopes to capture for posterity a global snapshot of the way in which we interact with the sounds and technology of today. We hope you’ll consider joining in on the day.

You will be able to contribute your stories to Harkive on 19th July in a number of ways. You can email the project directly, post to social networking sites such as Twitter using the #harkive hashtag, or on the wall of the Harkive Facebook page, or you can submit audio, photos, or video. A full list of the methods of how you can contribute are listed here.

There are also some great prizes on offer again this year, kindly donated by record labels, festivals, artists, writers and others. Anyone contributing a story on 19th July will automatically be entered into the draw.

Please do make a note of the date and in the meantime help us spread the word by telling your friends, on and offline. In the meantime, why not have a listen to our brand new Harkive Podcast, which is also available via iTunes.

On Tuesday 19th July the world will be listening…again: we do hope you’ll get involved and tell us your story.
