David Highlights From Global Meetup Day

Wow what a fantastic day: for SoundCloud’s Global Meetup Day, more than a thousand SoundClouders attended over sixty meetups around the world. Every single meetup was unique in one way or another with attendances varying from a dozen into the hundreds. Thanks everyone for participating! It was truly amazing to see that many different gatherings unfold, it was actually quite thrilling to see so many SoundClouders meet in real life all around the world. We thought it’d be fun to share some of the amazing things we’ve seen from that day.
