Upcoming camps will be held throughout the year in Copenhagen (March), Los Angeles surrounding Coachella (April), Atlanta (April), and in Amsterdam during ADE (October), with more to be announced.
Previous BMI songwriting camps and initiatives have produced chart-toppers such as Panic! At The Disco’s “High Hopes,” Nick Jonas‘ smash hit “Chains,” Prince Royce‘s catchy dance number “Stuck on a Feeling,” Zedd‘s “Daisy,” and most recently “Perras Como Tu” by Farina featuring Tokischa from the Miss Bala soundtrack.
ULTRA MUSIC has also hosted camps around Coachella and ADE as well as in London, Stockholm (with Ten Records) and Palm Springs, CA this past year.
“BMI prides itself on the unique and specialized creative services that we provide for our affiliates,” said Samantha Cox, BMI’s Vice President of Creative, NY. “As a result of our songwriting camps and other networking initiatives, we’ve fostered numerous successful collaborations which have generated chart-topping singles and commercial favorites. We’re thrilled to partner with Ultra to expand this initiative and build on our previous successes here in the US.”
“Ultra has been building a network of powerful writing camps, specializing in combining writers from different cultures and musical backgrounds for amazing results,” said Patrick Moxey, Founder and President of Ultra Music. “We welcome the involvement of BMI and their excellent writers. The song placement results have been extraordinary across camps in the US, UK, and Internationally and we look forward to the next level of growth for Ultra’s writers at the Ultra and BMI 2019 camps.”
