The North Carolina Songwriter’s Festival is coming to Fayetteville on May 21-23, 2020. The Festival will be a destination event for Fayetteville / Cumberland County and will additionally provide a platform for singer/songwriters in the local area to network with nationally-known songwriters and artists. 

We're looking for Sonicbids artists to join the lineup! 

The Opportunity

The Festival will feature simultaneous performances at various venues on and around Hay Street in downtown Fayetteville. The Thursday + Friday + Saturday event is timed to coincide with the Memorial Day holiday.

BMI, the Performing Rights Organization for songwriters and composers, has already agreed to sponsor this festival and will be curating the nationally-known songwriters who will be invited to attend. Based on similar festivals that are already held in other areas (Key West Songwriter’s Festival, for example), we expect to generate attendance of 10,000+ CaCarolina Songwriter’s Festival. This is a killer opportunity to get in front of music fans, industry professionals and fellow musicians.
