Welcome to the ASC! The next Australian Songwriters Conference will take place Thursday 7th to Monday 11th June 2018. The event will be held at the Ettalong Beach Tourist Resort, Ettalong Beach NSW.
The ASC focuses on the craft and business of songwriting and attracts writers, artists, producers and managers from across Australia and internationally. The only event of its kind in Australia, the ASC’s main aim is to provide a supportive and nurturing peer environment where attendees (ASCers!) can learn more about their craft, get up close and personal with the speakers and mentors who willingly share their time, knowledge and experience, and pitch their songs directly to the publishers (majors and indies) who attend the event.
The Australian Songwriters Conference includes:
- Speakers & Mentors – Hit songwriters and Music Industry execs discuss writing, publishing, production and more!
- Seminars, Talks & Workshops – Learn the secrets of hit songwriting and career momentum from the best in the business.
- Publisher Song Pitching – A truly unique opportunity for attendees to pitch songs directly to the Publishers.
- On-Site Recording & Production – Learn and work with our hit producers in the on-site studio.
- Live Showcases – Perform your original material to the pros, attendees and public.
- Exclusive Song Contest – ‘Attendees Only’ song contest with great prizes.
- Networking with Industry Pros & Hit Songwriters – Connect with the career-makers one-on-one.
ASCers fly in from around Australia and internationally to participate in the event, and already a number of them have gone on to write and record with Faculty and hit local and overseas Producers, have signed publishing deals, achieved #1 hits and national success, received song awards and commercial radio airplay, and made huge leaps in their careers – all as a direct result of attending the event.

The Australian Songwriters Conference is a major songwriter event on the music industry calendar and is a ‘must do’ for anyone with serious aspirations of a career as a performing or non-performing songwriter.
