Circuit Benders’ Ball is a biennial celebration of hardware hacking, art, music, and the creative spirit in Nashville, TN. The festival is returning August 25 through 27, 2017. It’s a great opportunity for performers and attendees to make connections, learn about new technologies, and inspire each other.

This year, we received a record number of applications from around the globe. But in order to bring these artists to Nashville, we need your help.

For businesses, we’ve outlined a number of suggested-sponsorship tiers, listed below.

We are also interested in teaming up with local universities and tech companies to sponsor specific artists. In this scenario, the artist would also lead a discussion, performance, and/or workshop at your school or business.

Thank you for your consideration!
