In 2013 Outside Magazine voted Park City, Utah as the best place to live and be healthy in America. From a defunct silver mining town, to a year round outdoor destination, Park City has it all: from skiing, mountain biking, hiking, restaurants, live music and all around good vibes. Tucked away in in the Wasatch Mountains, Park City hosted numerous events during the 2002 Winter Olympics. Not to mention the international airport 30 miles away, there’s no wonder why Outside voted Park City #1.
Thirty miles east of the great salt lake, 7,000 feet in the mountains of Park City, lies the biggest little music festival you don’t want to miss. This is the story of what happens when good friends, Grammy-winning songwriters, and the “best small city in America,” collide to create a re ned music experience. More than music lovers, we are curators of the most intimate and unique musical experience in America. We started Park City Songwriter Festival to honor the art of songwriting while interacting with the legendary writers who craft them. We are die-hard listeners, who crave the strum of a guitar over a wall of sound and quiet rooms over the large stage of most festivals. That’s why we have carefully crafted a music festival to feel like a house concert where listeners get open access to songwriting hall of famers from Nashville to New Orleans and Austin to LA with the opportunity to hear the real stories behind their hit songs and soak up a master class from industry pros. We sweat these details because we believe music is more than a performance, it’s a celebration. A celebration of folk, Americana, Country, Rock and Soul. A celebration of the singer/songwriter as told by 40+ artists over 3 days in 5 intimate venues, all located on Park City’s historic main street.
A celebration of the mountain lifestyle in the autumn, where you can hike or bike some of Park City’s 500+ miles of trails, walk down main street, experience exquisite food and shopping, and enjoy your favorite songwriters in between. A celebration of community. A community that cares so deeply about the artists and others in our musical community that we partnered with a foundation whose purpose is to address the needs of those with mental health and addiction recovery challenges – the Grammy’s MusiCares and Anders Osborne’s Send Me A Friend Foundation. Songwriting is at the heart of the live music experience. It all comes back to the song. That is why we exist. Park City Songwriter Festival is more than just a gathering, it’s a ceremonial statement of what really matters to us and we are excited to share that experience with you.
