ACM Music Business graduate Lucy Weston is single-handedly organising and running Songfest 2010; a new songwriting event that runs from 25th – 27th October. If you write your own songs or write for others, this is going to be the songwriting event of the year!

Presented by BASCA, home of the prestigious Ivor Novello Awards, SongFest is an exclusive gathering of young songwriters, music industry professionals, award-winning songwriters and unsigned artists.

Songfest takes place at the amazing Brickhouse in Shoreditch and will feature an selection of ex-ACM artists (Natalie RossJay EvansGareth SandhuSusie Clarke and Chris Nugent) as well as networking and advice seminars and interviews (with a few surprise performances thrown in!). Each day there will be three seminars, a speed dating event and an evening showcase. Check out the Songfest website for further info, location, tickets etc.
