Zoo Labs Music Residency: Placements for 2020 thru 2021

Zoo Labs | Oakland, CA | June 4th, 2019

Zoo Labs Music Residency   #ZLMR

What is the Zoo Labs Music Residency?

The Zoo Labs Music Residency is a 2-week immersive artists accelerator hosted 4 times a year. Participating in the residency will be your team's first step to scaling and validating your creative projects for the market. Accepted teams are a part of a long-term strategy and music immersion experience.

Each day of the 2-week residency includes:

  • Business lectures
  • Coaching from industry leaders
  • Meals prepared by our in-house chef
  • Recording time in world-class studios
  • Designing, exploring, and expanding your craft
  • Building the ultimate product.

You will be motivated and pushed to reach new heights, challenge conventional wisdom, learn quickly and move into the exceptional.

The program culminates in Release Day. Teams are asked to pitch their newly created work and strategic vision to investors, press and industry influencers. After pitching, we end the Release Day party with a public concert.


You are given a key to the Zoo Labs facilities to use it whenever needed. You must book studio time and pitch your project to our team. We are your support system. If you have questions or business holes you need to close, we will connect you with leaders that can help guide you in the right direction.

What are we looking for?

  • Engaged teams (2 to 5 people)
  • People with musical, technical, and/or business skills
  • Artists, producers, managers, or anyone else who plays a critical role in the day-to-day success of the team
  • Music Innovators
  • Hustlers
  • Redefiners

We’re not interested in a specific genre or background.

We push beyond the boundaries of status-quo to create new thinking, break down silos, and become radically transparent. We merge business to the creative process for you to build viable, ongoing success.
