In favour of its strong association with classical music, Munich's contributions to modern music are often overlooked. Munich had a strong music scene in the 60s and 70s, with many stars frequently performing in clubs.

Munich also played a significant role in the electronic music development with genre pioneer Giorgio Moroder, who invented synth disco and electronic dance music and "Queen of Disco" Donna Summer, both living and working in Munich.
