Frequently Asked Questions: 
GENERAL 
 
Is SongFest an outdoor festival?   Nope. SongFest is a boutique, indoor festival. No need to bring your wellies or bumbershoot.
 
Is there parking at both SongFest locations?  Yes, there is plenty of free parking available at both SongFest sites (south & north). 
 
Are there on-site accommodations available at both SongFest locations?  Yes. However, please note, on-site accommodations are limited, and must be booked via the SongFest.live website when booking your SongFest tickets. On-site room accommodations will be offered as an additional item 'option', towards the end of the SongFest ticket-order process (on the Eventbrite.com ticket page).
 
Are there off-site accommodations available at both SongFest locations?  Yes. If you prefer off-site accommodations, or if on-site accommodations are fully booked, you'll find plenty of off-site accommodations within a few minutes of either SongFest site by using GoogleMap's 'nearby Hotel' feature.
 
Is camping allowed at the SongFest locations?  Nope. There are currently no camping facilities on-site at either SongFest locations. However, there are camping and caravan sites within 10 minutes of SongFest (south / Wareham) and within 20 minutes of SongFest (north / Crewe). You'll find plenty of off-site accommodations within a few minutes of either SongFest site by using GoogleMap's 'nearby Hotel' feature.
 
Is food and beverage available on-site?  Yes, there will be food and beverage available, in the restaurant and bar, at both SongFest sites, with a limited ala carte menu; however, please note: we have scheduled a 'Dinner Intermission', from 6:00pm to 7:00pm, and all festival-attendees are strongly encouraged to pre-order their dinner intermission meal vouchers, in advance, in order to assure timely turn-around between performances. Meal Vouchers can be ordered as an additional item 'option', towards the end of the SongFest ticket-order process (note: on-site accommodations can also be ordered as an 'option' towards the end of the SongFestticket-order process).
 
SONGWRITING MASTERCLASSES 
 
Do you need to be an experienced songwriter to enroll in a 'Songwriting Masterclass'? Nope. All levels, from beginner to pro, are welcome and encouraged to participate. 
 
Do you need to be able to play an instrument to enroll in a 'Songwriting Masterclass'?  Again, no. Just ask Elton's songwriting collaborator, Bernie Taupin. No musical experience is required and poets and lyricists, aspiring beginners or hardworking professionals, are more than welcome.
 
Can I bring along an instrument to play a song or work-in-progress? Definitely yes, with the exception of bagpipes and banjos which will require a 'certificate of competency', signed by a professional. That was just a joke, not mean to offend any bagpipe players. ;-) By all means bring along an instrument, if you like; however, it is not required. And please note, there will be at least one guitar and keyboard for participants to perform their work on. Instructors will endeavor to find time, over the two sessions, to listen to, at least, one work or work-in-progress, of all participants in order to provide feedback; however, performing is not a requirement for any participant.
 
Any other questions, just send an email to: info@songfest.live
