SongFest, the three-day event about songwriting for songwriters, 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 organisation 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.

Aimed at the Ivor Novello-winning songwriters of the future, SongFest is a modestly priced event giving attendees the chance to learn from the professionals, network with industry executives and develop their song writing skills.

CHRIS DIFFORD (Squeeze);
MARK MORRISS (The Bluetones);
SWAY; 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;
MAXI PRIEST;
KIM APPLEBY;
ALI TENNANT (X-Factor vocal coach);
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).
