Your chance to win tickets for the DEX Songwriter Expo in Budapest

On Feb­ru­ary 18th and 19th, Budapest will be the cap­i­tal of song­writ­ing when the sec­ond DEX Song­writer Expo takes place offer­ing more than 40 dif­fer­ent programs.

Over the course of the two days, par­tic­i­pants will have the chance to meet music indus­try pro­fes­sion­als and music cre­ators from Hun­gary and abroad. Dina Mys­tris, the Swedish tal­ent man­ag­er, will present at “Pitch Per­fect: How best to com­mu­ni­cate with the music indus­try. ” Ken Chong, Sin­ga­pore­an com­pos­er and pro­fes­sor at var­i­ous dis­tin­guished insti­tu­tions, will pro­vide insight into the Asian music indus­try’s inner work­ings. The inter­na­tion­al­ly recog­nised Croa­t­ian song­writer, per­former and cre­ator Tama­ra Obrovac will share her know-how and expe­ri­ences with us , as well as com­pos­er-pro­duc­er Will Simms.

Any­one can apply with their own com­po­si­tion to Har­ald Hanisch’s lis­ten­ing ses­sion, where they will get feed­back from both the Vien­nese Music Acad­e­my’s pop music lec­tur­er as well as the audience.

This year’s pro­gram is enriched with pre­sen­ta­tions on the process of song­writ­ing. Young, inter­na­tion­al­ly suc­cess­ful bands intro­duce the cre­ative phas­es behind their most pop­u­lar songs, illus­trat­ed and accom­pa­nied by live music. Among oth­ers, Apey and the Pea, who have per­formed at all the major show­case fes­ti­vals, will rep­re­sent met­al, while Mar­garet Island will rep­re­sent pop.
