The Hawai'i Songwriting Festival is a celebration of the art & craft of songwriting, with an emphasis on collaboration, education, and music for film/TV. Songwriters of all levels from all walks of life come together to connect with each other and music professionals from Hawai'i, the mainland, and beyond. Whether you are a beginning songwriter or an experienced writer with placements and publishing deals, at the Hawai'i Songwriting Festival you will learn a ton, expand your network, and get your creative batteries charged up!
The Hawai'i Songwriting Festival is unique from other music conferences because its small size and the relaxed island atmosphere create an intimate experience where amateurs, professionals, and everyone in between can develop meaningful relationships through the one thing that unites us all: music.
The Hawai’i Songwriting Festival is for songwriters from all walks of life and at all levels of their careers. Come learn about the craft and business of songwriting from professional songwriters and music industry executives, develop new relationships with songwriters from around the world, and get your creative batteries charged up in a beautiful setting surrounded by people who all share your passion for music
