The Kaua‘i Music Festival: The Kaua‘i Music Festival (KMF) Songwriter Conference is a 4-day celebration of the art and craft of songwriting. At the KMF Songwriter Conference, you will learn songwriting and/or refine your skills through interaction with some of the best professional songwriters in America. In addition, throughout the conference, your music will be heard by people in the music industry who really can make a difference to your career. Through our one-on-one meetings, small group sessions, workshops, panel discussions, open mic activities, and more, you will be able to consult and get feedback directly from the Grammy, Emmy, and Na Hoku-winning songwriters, producers, TV and Film Music Supervisors, top A&R Executives, and other music industry people in attendance – all in the creative, low-pressure atmosphere of an island paradise!
