The Copenhagen Songwriters Festival is focused on original song craft and the vibrant songwriting scene in Denmark and beyond.


This volunteer run community event was founded in 2009 by American songwriter/Danish resident Brett Perkins in partnership with Kultur Vesterbro, and transitioned to the Copenhagen Songwriters Festival forening in 2014.


The goal of the festival is to provide an inclusive, multicultural annual event, promoting performing songwriters ‘New And Known’ to a wider audience.


We invite you to attend Denmark’s most hyggeligt event, where talented artists from several genres and countries can be heard presenting their original works.
