SXSW Songs makes its much-anticipated in-person return to the SXSW Conference and Festivals. This unique songwriting camp experience draws select producers, songwriters, and artists from across the globe and takes them to Austin's Arlyn Studios. For the first time, SXSW Songs will take place during the SXSW Music Festival from March 14-16.

Past participants have gone on to co-write chart-topping tracks, from the likes of Tate McRae (you broke me first by Victoria Zaro) to Tiësto (The Business by James “Yami” Bell). Check out the Spotify playlist featuring selected cuts co-written at previous SXSW Songs camps.

The lineup for SXSW Songs 2023 will feature approximately 20 writers from nine countries including: remy (US), Toby Jacob (NL), PHIA (UK), and Showcasing Artist Andrew Farriss (AUS).

All SXSW registrants are able to attend the official SXSW Songs 2023 Listening Party playback on Friday, March 17 at 10:30am at The Courtyard.
