Giving the stage to the people behind the hits

Copenhagen Songwriters festival rolling into town

A festival that guarantees you some songs that will stick around in your head for a while!

The seventh annual Copenhagen Songwriters Festival gives the stage to the people behind the hits. Focusing especially on Copenhagen’s vibrant writing scene this year, over 70 performances will feature outstanding talents like Tobias Trier, the Reptones and Helle Hansen.

But performances alone would be too little for an ambitious project that was featured in Politiken’s Ibyen 2013 Hipster list.

The festival includes lots of different genres, creating an inspirational and creative surrounding for the talents and audience, young and old alike!
Songwriters are given an environment where they can connect and network, as well as participate in free workshops.

Especially fun is the daily open stage (don’t pretend you’re shy!) and surprise guests. The program so far offers two pre-parties (free admission) at the Råhuset Stage on Wednesday and Thursday, before the full event starts on Friday with three full days of performances and workshops.

No matter if you’re a songwriter or not, you’ll enjoy this weekend of music and parties!
