The Park City Song Summit Story
The Park City Song Summit redeﬁnes the live music experience. By design it creates an environment for musicians to share, learn and recharge their passion for music through community and the power of song.
Unlike any other music gathering, The Song Summit is also a place to examine the struggles and breakthroughs that artists face on their creative journey.
Over the course of ﬁve days in September, the Song Summit combines the singer-songwriter format of an Unplugged platform with a MasterClass style of information exchange through Labs. This atmosphere for connection between musician and fan reimagines the idea of playing to a crowd and focuses on sharing and exploring the full spectrum of songwriting and creating music.
Song Summit is not a music festival. But, just because it is not a “festival”, doesn’t mean there won’t be live music performances. Bands and artists will play intimate shows, share stories at songwriter in the rounds, busk on the street, flash jam in surprise locations and perform small and big stage concerts.
The Song Summit allows musicians to share their craft and expertise with peers, fans and leading industry experts. In addition to exchanging insights, history and learnings, artists will play together in intimate settings with each other and/or small audiences. Each artist is considered “in-residence” in a retreat setting with the intention of informing, resetting and recharging the songwriting process.
The Labs program is what makes Song Summit unique. These discussions will dissect, illuminate and interrogate the art and craft of songwriting. Some artists will lead talks on their own, others will work with subject experts including names like: Amanda Shires, Joy Oladokun, Jonathan Russell, Andrew Bird, Alison Moasshart, Rich Roll, Leslie Jordan, Fred Armisen, Shaun White, and more.
The Edge of Music
The Song Summit is designed to bring awareness to the struggles people in the music community face and offer insight, inspiration and help concerning the pressures associated with the profession and the lifestyle. As our culture increasingly deals with mental health, addiction recovery and suicide prevention in the post-pandemic era, this focus will also resonate with attendees.
