POP & SCHLAGER SONGWRITERCAMP 2014
Inspired by the snowy scenery in the middle of the Alps, far away from the everyday life and motivated by the fresh mountain air, songwriters can let their creativity run wild. Following a very successful premiere of the Schedler Music Summit in 2013, the branch meeting will be continued in 2014, becoming an annual event. At the Schedler Music Summit March 14th-16th 2014, the music industry will meet again in Steeg (Lechtal/Tyrol) and in Warth am Arlberg to make new contacts and catch up with the old ones, and of course exchange news from the industry. A singer/songwriter session offers the opportunity to perform the newly written songs and participants can also perform some of their own songs. Songwriters will also have the chance to forge new contacts with people from labels/A&R’s/PMs/etc.
