Article Contributed by IVPR | Published on Monday, July 15, 2019

Taking place across five venues in the “best small city in America” on September 13th and 14th, Park City Songwriter Festival promises to be an experience to captivate even the most avid of live music fans. In addition to the headliner’s concerts each night, songwriters in the round, panels, and workshops will all be part of the PCSF experience, which was dreamed up by Park City residents and festival co-founders, Ben Anderson, Scott Thomson, and Aaron Benward. “Park City Songwriter Festival brings to life our vision for an intimate musical experience where attendees feel like they’re in the green room, listening to their favorite artists swap stories,” says Anderson. “We’ve got Grammy award-winning artists with chart-topping songs and the Festival lineup brings a great mix of acoustic shows, electric musical performances, and industry-leading speakers.” Speaking of Grammys, Park City Songwriter Festival’s inaugural lineup has collectively won 17 of them. In addition to those awards and 12 more Grammy nominations, they’ve also won 3 ACM Awards, 3 CMA Awards, and have had 59 number one songs. Three tiers of tickets for Park City Songwriter Festival are on sale now. A very limited number of “Platinum” and VIP tickets are available as well as general admission. A detailed list of what is included with each ticket can be found below. All tickets can be purchased here.

Diving deeper than just the songs, Park City Songwriter Festival was also founded to focus on mental health and addiction recovery challenges that persist in the music industry today. Partnering with the Grammy’s MusiCares organization and headlining artist Anders Osborne’s Send Me A Friend Foundation, Park City Songwriter Festival cares as much about the health of the songwriters as they do the songs themselves. 

Park City Songwriter Festival’s initial lineup includes (in alphabetical order) Aaron Barker, Aaron Benward, Alicia Stockman, Anders Osborne, Anna Wilson, Bill Luther, Billy Dean, Bryon Friedman, Chad Cromwell, Chris Wallin, D Vincent Williams, Danny Myrick, Dave Pahanish, DJ Logic, Earl Bud Lee, Eric Van Houten, Even Stevens, Hailey Steele, Ira Dean, Keith Stegall, Kent Blazy, Kyle Jacobs, Kylie Sackley, Luther Dickinson, Marc Broussard, Matt Warren, Megan Linville, Monty Powell, North Mississippi Allstars, Paul Jenkins, Phillip White, Rick Brantley, Rick Gerber, Shannon Runyon, Sinclair, Sophia Dion, Steve Seskin, The Side Deal, Tim James, Travis Howard, Tyler Hilton, and Windy Wagner. In addition to national talent, ten local songwriters were selected through Park City Songwriter Festival’s relationship with Mountain Town Music.
