Sunset Songwriting Festival

Nashville and LA industry pros will connect songwriters, publishers and producers during a three-day event of workshops, performances and networking

ongwriting community SongTown and hit show Nashville Unplugged have partnered to launch the Sunset Songwriting Festival, a three-day music immersion event taking place on 9–11 October 2015 at the Sunset Station Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The brainchild of hit songwriters Clay Mills, Marty Dodson and Aaron Benward, the event will offer performances by top music industry professionals from Nashville, music supervisors from Los Angeles, hit songwriters, professional development workshops and unique networking opportunities.

Workshop topics include:

  • Song placements in film and television, presented by acclaimed music supervisors from Los Angeles
  • How to maximize social media to build your career
  • Writing songs that move audiences from indie stages to hit radio
  • VIP pitch session to pitch songs to top publishers/music supervisor professionals
  • Networking event with hit writers and publishers

“We’ve designed this festival from the ground up to be a great experience for fans, artists, and songwriters, including hit writer/artists and up-and-comers,” said Clay Mills, GRAMMY Award-nominated hit songwriter and co-founder of the Sunset Songwriting Festival. “It is a great platform to make industry connections, learn about the songwriting business, and most of all, have a fun time.”

The Sunset Songwriting Festival is open to the public, and will offer four ticket packages to choose from, but bear in mind that space is limited. A complete line-up of hit performers will be announced soon and submissions to perform at the festival are being accepted through 25 August 2015. Performers will have the opportunity to play in front of songwriting influencers, prominent producers and publishers, and other top industry professionals.
