While the Scandinavian countries usually do well in the much-hyped Eurovision Song Contest, there is much more songwriting talent to be found beneath the tip of the iceberg – and Denmark is no exception. At the Copenhagen Songwriters Festival, you can hear for yourself.

The annual festival aims to promote both new and well-known performing songwriters across a range of different music genres. It was brought to life a decade or so ago by the American singer-songwriter Brett Perkins, who lives in Copenhagen.

A non-profit and inclusive event, the festival embraces all ages and genders who want to share their original works. It’s all run by volunteers and takes place at the Rådhuset at Onkel Dannys Plads in the trendy Meat Packing District – a short walk from Copenhagen Central Station.

Previous performers here have included established Danish singer-songwriters like Tina Dickow and Mads Langer. Check the website for this year’s line-up, which will as always include both Danish and international performers.
