From San Diego to Perth and from Tel Aviv to Santiago, were calling all SoundClouders and enthusiasts to start organizing today! Meet up with like-minded Clouders in your city to connect over Sound, create collaborative recordings, run your own sound scavenger hunt, record spoken word or do a million other creative things together (the skys the limit!). Lets show the world that the SoundCloud community is the largest community of sound creators on the planet!

Promote your meetup on Facebook and Twitter and invite your friends to join. We will help you promote your meetup through our channels. Organizers will be sent a meetup kit with stickers, SoundCloud name badges and a t-shirt: http://bit.ly/IgkbiA

    So what's the plan guys? I see no link to a forum or even a Facebook event. The meetup is in less than two weeks.
    ...
    Zefora?

      I can help too, let me know if you need a photographer, blogger, social media insight as well. I can make the FB group too if you want, or you could put multiple people on as administrators. Let me know where I can help!

      Posted by Abacus P. May 13, 2012
    • Zefora's Photo

      I'd love the help! Definitely. The only snag with starting a facebook page or forum is I have to get clearance from SoundCloud on the name, etc. I've got an email in to Jane so hopefully she'll get back to me today. And just so everyone knows, I contacted the restaurant and they're cool with us showing up Thursday. The side room is currently free, so if it's still empty when we get there, we can use it so long as we leave the doors open so other people can come in. :)

      Ohhhh mann I'm so jealous. I contemplated buying that ticket for months! The music line-up is ridiculous!

      Posted by Abacus P. May 11, 2012
    • Adrian T.'s Photo

      The funny thing is the line up was the last thing I looked at AFTER deciding I was going! I'm going down to volunteer. I originally wasn't interested in going. The universe made it happen. My jaw did drop after I finally saw the line up though.

    It'd be great to focus on this event being a planning meeting for future events! If we get sidetracked on everybody sharing their music we might not grow and thrive as much. We need to make this awesome in the long run and that means more planning&less music sharing at first. But maybe we could setup a forum online for people attending to listen to each other's stuff prior to the event? I mean if 95% of you make really bad electronic music I'd rather know that before I show up rather than after.

    Hey gang. Who's in charge? Lots of talking about talking about planning something. Here's the deal. I've been an event promoter since 1999, and have a plethera of other services to offer. I also have a lot of domains, and unlimited hosting, and can easily set up a discussion forum. Put me in coach!

      I'll be setting up a forum this weekend. I know a really good one that will work well for us! I've had a lot of success with it in the past. Upcoming events will be clearly visible, and we can share photos, sounds, have discussions, and everyone gets their own blog to use. I'll post a link here once it's up and I'll be sending out messages to Portlanders on SoundCloud as well. As many as I can find, anyway. I know some of you are hiding. ;) feel free to invite friends and family as well!

      Ok BS of D...just read your message again. Hit me up via private message on SoundCloud. I have some questions about maybe using your forum expertise! Thanks! :) Http://soundcloud.com/zefora

    Hey Alex, is there a reason you changed the venue? Is Laurelwood all ages or exclusively a bar? Will it accommodate a meetup of a slowly growing group of people? Feel free to drop some info and thoughts here on why you changed it from Lucky Lab. I'm all for open discussion about finding the right place, but I want to make sure we keep this open to everyone (especially if we have parents and teens coming) and that no one gets confused about where the meetup is.

      I feel we can eventually find something that can accommodate us even better than the Lucky Lab, but for right now (and again I won't be there), I feel a more intimate setting were we can meet and plan for future meet ups might be best for now.

      is the lucky lab open to adults under tha age of 21?

      Posted by Alex P. April 16, 2012
  • The BS of D's Photo

    How's the event looking? Don't see much discussion here... Personally I'd love to see a 2012 SC meetup include some live performances, and think it may also attract more soundclouders/followers... is it too late to find a venue with a stage?

      (continued)
      A venue with a stage would likely want a sound man. ($)
      A venue with a stage probably already has a show on a Thur and needs to be doing load in & sound checks.
      Provided we did find a venue that suited that, it would be difficult to smoothly and consistently run something where multiple full bands and laptoppers set up and play 1 or 2 songs each.
      The other meet up I attend lets us in @ 7, we get booted near 9. It's a bar but since they're not open under 21 can attend.

      Posted by Adrian T. April 16, 2012
    • Adrian T.'s Photo

      (continued) Everyone at that one plays tracks of of laptops, ipods or phones. We get to turn up the system!
      Now, here's where the fun can begin!!!
      We have meet ups & get to know each other and network right? Well then either as a group or in separate efforts can have "showcases". In a showcase there would be more room for each band or project to shine in a proper show format. If done well, I could envision soundcloud possibly picking up some of the tab to make it happen.
      Just my two cents

      I actually won't make the 17th meet up. There's a festival & I'm getting a free ticket for volunteering.

      Posted by Adrian T. April 15, 2012
    • Zefora's Photo

      Ah, that's too bad, but let's keep in touch for future meetups. I'd love to start making this a monthly thing.

    How is planning going for everyone so far? Remember to fill out this form to get your swag: http://bit.ly/IgkbiA­

    We are so excited for May 17th!!

  • Adrian T.'s Photo

    Is there still need for a venue? I was hoping to spearhead a meet up and I see there is one in the works already. If you don't mind, I might be able to help with a few things. I just sent in my info to get a meet up kit sent my way.

      Congrats!

      Yeah my job is just to encourage the community to grow and act as a sort of bridge between all of you and the SoundCloud Community Team. Like we're building this grassroots SoundCloud Community here in person. They are super supportive of whatever it is we're doing and they're going to help us grow and promote what we do; shows, events, meetings, collabs, projects, whatever. I am your link to that resource. We may start small, but I think this could blow up into something huge.

      Posted by Zefora April 10, 2012
    • Zefora's Photo

      I'm definitely not here to tell everyone what to do. I'm here to help you get it done. I want you all to take ownership of your own community and take charge of organizing anything whenever you feel the inspiration. Just keep me informed so I can help you. It's much easier to get people together and involved when they're excited and feel involved instead of one person just telling everyone what to do and where to go. I want YOU to tell ME what we're going to do. It'll be way more fun :)

      Posted by Zefora April 10, 2012
  • Zefora's Photo

    I'm going to try to put the word out on SoundCloud by sending private messages. Hopefully we can get more enthusiastic people to join us :)

    I think this global meet-up is a fantastic opportunity for PORTLAND SOUNDCLOUDERS to meet up!! I've been wanting to meet others from the Soundcloud community for awhile and I think we can get some great things planned. I want to hear Soundcloud stories, how people are getting involved, why people love music, what plans they have..LET'S MEET!
