Sound brings people together. Sound forms connections and sound breaks down barriers. SoundClouders are spread all over the globe and that’s what makes this community of sound creators so amazing and unique. You’re the best and you should celebrate yourself on May 17th when it’s time for another SoundCloud Global Meetup Day. Save the date!
Still wondering how to get involved? It is simple!
Wouldn’t it be awesome if on Global Meetup Day, SoundClouders around the world create the song of their city? You could go out there, capture the sounds of your city and together with other SoundClouders re-use them in a song that reflects your city best. The Song Of Los Angeles? The Song Of Paris? The Song of Melbourne? If this sounds like you, then let’s unmute your city on May 25 and see your song featured right here on the blog afterwards.
Not a musician yourself? Not a problem at all. Everybody can participate:
Audio tour of your city: invite your friends to a sound safari across your city. Weird and odd, beautiful and frightening. Experience your city in a different way and record & share the sounds of your city with us and the world.
Sound City: in one minute or two, ask each other answering three simple questions: 1) Who are you 2) Where are you and 3) What’s special about your city and why. Ok, technically, that’s four but don’t tell anyone.
City Sound Ambassador: at your meetup with other SoundClouders ask them questions and record their favorite SoundCloud moments. Everyone’s got a story, we want to hear it.

Wow what a fantastic day: for SoundCloud’s Global Meetup Day, more than a thousand SoundClouders attended over sixty meetups around the world.
