EasyRider handles riders with ease

March 25, 2012
Chris Douridas (2-time Grammy nominated music supervisor) was impressed by how fully realized and music/entertainment focused many of the ideas were. EasyRider impressed Chris the most - ready to use application got the highest points from the jury and came the winner of the Garage48 Tallinn Music 2012.
20 ideas were pitched at Technopolis Ülemiste on Friday 23th of March, where Garage48 Tallinn Music 2012 was kicked off. Many of the ideas were focused on music and entertainment, 14 of them got the needed team behind to be able to start development. 

The winner EasyRider is a irreplaceable tool for festival and event organizers and promoters dealing with bands and music artists. Helen Sildna (the organizer of Tallinn Music Week) said that it's a dream-tool for every promoter and she herself will use it for Tallinn Music Week 2013:)

Thanks to all our great sponsors: NOKIA, Swedbank, Technopolis Ülemiste, Skype, Elion, Credit24 and many others for joining forces with Garage48 Foundation to hold the latest Garage48 in Tallinn. With the main focus on developing music and entertainment apps, a weekend-long intensive event resulted in 14 new prototypes.

EasyRider - The Winner of Garage48 Tallinn Music
+ Special prizes from Swedbank

Easyrider is a platform and tool for bands and event promoters/organizers to exchange technical riders before concerts and festivals. So far riders are sent via e-mail, fax or some other old-school format, but there is no easy to use and efficient communication channel. Easyrider is a cool service to save time, money and a lot of stress to the bands, promoters and technicians. Going global, from the start!
