Dean Friedman will be conducting a masterclass at Songfest to be held in the early afternoon, prior to the main festival performances.

Enjoy a weekend at Rugby’s Draycote Hotel for “a micro-music-festival celebrating really good songs and the folks who write ’em.”

Like us, we’re sure you’re currently filling up your calendars with summer festivals, gigs, retreats and workshops. Across these pages, we’ve got details of other songwriting events taking place in Santorini and France. However, as much as we love to travel, sometimes us Brits like to stay a little closer to home.

Taking place at the Draycote Hotel in Rugby from 17-18 August, SongFest 2024 is a micro-music-festival celebrating the art of songwriting and bringing together a stellar line-up of artists including Mike Batt, Dean Friedman, Ian Shaw, Boothby Graffoe, Charlotte Campbell, Tracey Curtis, and Nia Nicholls.

Weekend tickets are priced at £74.00 (plus £6.88 fee), while day tickets are available for £58.00 (plus a £5.54 fee). There’s also the chance to attend Dean Friedman’s exclusive Songwriting Masterclass, costing £125 and limited to eight participants.
