Song Castle is the most renowned co-writing workshop in the Nordic countries. This year it runs from May 3rd to 7th and takes place in the town of Järvenpää, a short drive away from the Helsinki airport. The workshop brings together 40 songwriters, A&R representatives and publishers from Finland, the United States and Germany to network and write music in the beautiful Kallio-Kuninkala estate, a wonderful example of northern neoclassical architecture.

Since 2007, Song Castle has brought together the best songwriters from Finland and abroad to work on leads provided by major labels and publishers from the biggest music markets on the globe. The resulting songs have stormed the charts in the United States, South Korea, Japan, France, Germany, Sweden and Australia.

”Song Castle is hands down the easiest way to build lasting relationships with both amazing songwriters and publishers from all over the world.” - Greg Federspiel (A&R at RCA Records)

"Song Castle is by far one of the best writing camps I’ve attended and I’ve returned every year since the start. To see Song Castle’s growth over the years has been very interesting and very satisfactory. Music Finland’s Sami Häikiö and his brilliant team’s organizational skills are simply flawless. Everything works like clockwork. The writers attending are superb, both international and domestic, the A&R executives from all corners of the world are bringing great business and music expertise. With this said I’m proud to call myself a Song Castle veteran”. -Pelle Lidell (European A&R Executive, Universal Music Publishing)
