Songwriting camp by and with Popakademics: Apply now!

04. November 2021

From November 26-28, Mannheim-based OSTAR Music Network will host the EAST x WEST International Songwriting- Camp, which aims to bring together creatives from Western and Eastern Europe digitally. Over two and a half days, people from all over the world can create new music in small teams, which will then be pitched to publishers like BMG or Warner Music.

They will be supported by former Popakademie students like Laura Kloos (FYDE) and Antonia Rug (NOVAA). After the camp, the participants should not only have made lasting contacts, but also received feedback on their tracks from professional A&Rs.

Songwriters and music producers [LK_N https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeHO1uv1RYNdQ7l5FolOt3QULKVVeLCZa8fp4zHyJwbRZ6sPQ/viewform]who are open to new experiences, want to try their hand at writing for other artists, and want to collaborate with people from all over the world can apply until Nov. 12, 2021.

Since the OSTAR Music Network 2021 project is funded by the German Foreign Office, participation is free. The goal of OSTAR Music Network is to promote creative talent and bring together musicians and aspiring music business professionals from Eastern and Western Europe. In doing so, the initiators and Popakademie alumni Thomas Woschitz and Stefan Wandel, together with partners that include the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg, offer international continuing education programs for creative professionals in music and the music business.
