SXSW Songs Brings Together Top Songwriters from Around the World

Arlyn Studios

For the first time, we’ll be hosting SXSW Songs, an international song camp curated by industry professionals, at Arlyn Studios from Sunday, March 12 through Tuesday, March 14. SXSW’s platform for convening a global community of artists, songwriters, producers, publishers, music supervisors, A&R, brands, and corporations offers a unique backdrop for the song camp experience.

An international advisory board has selected the SXSW Songs participants, which includes songwriters, producers, headliners and performers from around the world. Additionally, some SXSW Music Festival performing artists are expected to drop by for sessions at the camp.

Confirmed participants include:

Sigala whose credits include John Newman and Nile Rodgers; Freedo whose credits include Zara Larsson and Little Mix; Soaky Siren whose credits include Rita Ora, Tinashe, and Sean Paul; and Chiara Hunter whose credits include David Guetta and Galantis.

ASCAP, Shure, Gibson, Roland, and Timbuk2 are all on board as official sponsors of SXSW Songs.

Be a Part of SXSW Songs

SXSW registrants can get a taste for the SXSW Songs experience and songwriting output at two events on Wednesday, March 15 as part of the SXSW Music Festival. There will be a panel discussion—SXSW Songs: The Current State of Songwriting—with camp participants and music publishers, followed by an evening listening party of the songs written during the program at the Victorian Room in the Driskill Hotel.
