Music Finland's Rock Song Hotel is a songwriting camp for writers and artists focusing on rock-influenced pop music. The camp showcases the most interesting up-and-coming songwriters and artists from Finland’s rock music scene.
Rock Song Hotel aims to showcase the most interesting new Finnish songwriters hailing from the local rock (including subgenres like heavy metal, indie rock and punk) scene by background. The camp will feature artists, producers and songwriters from both Finland and abroad.
Rock Song Hotel will be organized at Suomenlinnan Studio, Suomenlinna Helsinki, between March 21st and 24th. Music Finland invites artists and songwriters from other European markets for co-writing sessions. We will host five writing teams simultaneously and each writer will work in two different teams during the camp. The Finnish participants will also be provided with capacity building content related to music industry topics.
Rock Song Hotel is Music Finland’s newest songwriting camp concept, a spin-off developed from Song Hotel. Song Hotel aims to support upcoming songwriters from different genres and support the development of their special expertise and professional character. Song Hotel is a part of Music Finland’s song export strategy, along with A-Pop Castle, Song Castle, Top 20 - Future Hitmakers and the Future Vision of Finnish Songwriters and Publishers. Held in December 2021, the EDM Hotel camp was the first Song Hotel focusing on a specific subgenre of pop music.
The songwriting camp Song Hotel has been organized since 2011. Few of the most recent camps have featured artists such as Kelvin Jones and Ilira, and for example Novaa, Halie and Simonne Jones have released songs written at Song Hotel.
International artists, songwriters and industry will participate by invitation.
Finnish artists and songwriters will be chosen through an application process (please visit our Finnish language site for applications).
