Institute To Support 2011 Songfest Event

Institute To Support 2011 Songfest Event

LONDON, UK (Top40 Charts/ ICMP) The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance is delighted to announce that it will be supporting this year's Songfest event, which is set to return for a second year after an explosive start in 2010.

Organised by BASCA (British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors, the campaigning organization also known for hosting the Ivor Novello Awards) Songfest will this year take place at the Bedford in Balham, London, a venue synonymous with promoting new, up-and-coming songwriting talent and a venue regularly used by Institute students. Aimed at the Ivor Novello-winning songwriters of the future, Songfest gives attendees the chance to learn from the professionals, network with industry executives and develop their song writing skills.

Speakers already confirmed for this year’s extravaganza include: Chris Difford (Squeeze); Nerina Pallot; MOBO-nominated acts Omar and Mike Hough; beatboxer extraordinaire Shlomo; world renowned producer Steve Levine; newcomers and youtube sensations Sam Beeton and Dan Priddy; Pete Kirtley (songwriter with Guy Chambers, Ryan Tedder and Kim Wilde) and Bill Padley (songwriter and producer with Sheryl Crow, the Fugees, Ronan Keating, Blue, Atomic Kitten).

Each panel and session has been carefully curated to appeal to the next generation of songwriters and includes ‘The Secrets of the Chart-Toppers: What makes a No.1 Hit Record?’; ‘The Craft of Songwriting’; ‘Common Pitfalls of Signing Deals’; ‘Tips on Bedroom Recording’; ‘Self-Promotion and Making Money’; and ‘How to Become a You Tube sensation!’

Delegates will also be given the opportunity to network with professionals and executives working in the British music industry. Each day will end with a live music showcase at the Bedford. Tickets are on sale now exclusively via We Got Tickets. Day tickets cost £20. Tickets for the entire three days cost £50.
