The 10th annual Song Fest on Music Row is 3 days of live, original music of all genres performed in Nashville, TN. Multiple stages, classes, open houses, networking and gathering of old friends represent the past, present and future of songwriting. There are 6 slots reserved for Sonicbids artists to perform their original songs live at the festival.

The Songwriters Festival is part live original music festival, part music conference, part networking opportunity and part gathering of old friends held on June 1-3, 2012. The live performances, education and Open House are concurrently running events. Attendees can take in all or parts and 'play it by ear'.

Songwriters of all genres share their music on multiple stages and open sing rings. The festival is open to all forms of songwriting, from the novice to the professional. There are no pre-qualifications to play or attend. Everyone is encouraged to come as they are. All attendees will have the opportunity to share their words or music and find their place in the mix.

While at the fest, writers can also attend Pro Instruction classes, workshops, Q&A sessions and gather other personal information, all about the craft and business of songwriting.

The Open House is held by participating recording studios, publishers, song pluggers and other music related businesses, where writers can drop by without an appointment to ask questions, exchange samples or discuss what part they play in the business of music. Artists can register their music for the Open House and festival attendees can stop by and check out some of the songs.

For registered and non performing writers there will be a "Writer's Area" provided by the festival near the Info Booth. At the display table attendees can deposit their CD'S and the fest staff will take inquiries or make sales for participants. Artists can also drop off a copy of their songs in the Festival Drop Box, where their materials can be checked out by the fest or forwarded to others.
