FAQ – Nashville Nights International Songwriters Festival

Events

What is a writers round?

The classic format of a songwriters round or a writers round has three or four songwriters or artists on stage. One performs a song, followed by the next writer, and the next, and so on. Each songwriter can join in with the others, add harmonies, contribute a guitar riff, or just listen.

What is a talk?

A talk can be a live conversation on stage, a masterclass, a debate or a presentation. You’ll have the chance to get close to the songwriters and artists when they talk about topics like co-writing, mental health, abuse, diversity, pitching your songs, inspiration, social media and much more.

Transport and hotel

Arriving by plane.

If you arrive by plain you can get a train straight to Odense from Copenhagen Airport. You may have to change at Copenhagen Central Station, but it is very easy to find your way and there are always friendly people around you can ask. It takes about two hours to get from Copenhagen to Odense by train and it’s a beautiful ride over the “Storbælts bridge”.
You can purchase your train ticket to Odense at Copenhagen Airport if you take the escalator downstairs to the train platform. There you will find ticket machines. You can pay with every major credit card. They all have an english language option.
When you arrive in Odense, Odense train station is located right next to Kings Garden where we have our tent stage The Circus. You’ll see it as soon as you exit the building. Inside The Circus you’ll find a stage, bars, food stores, the official festival merch store and the festival reception where you can get all the information you need – and you can get your wrist band there too.
There are also taxis available at the airport. It’s a two hour drive, very pretty and very expensive. It will cost you at least $400USD.
