Update: Join our July 2024 Epsilon Records' Songwriting Retreat

Welcome to the Songwriting Retreat in Greece organised by Epsilon Records in association with diVerse Records.

Dates: 06-Jul-2024 until 10-Jul-2024

Place: Paranesti, Drama (official web page)

Enjoy 5 days and 4 nights in the Dionysian, inspiring nature that only Paranesti can offer. It is a quiet place with a strong tradition in music; ideal to set your mind free of all concerns and focus only on writing songs! For the rest, we got you covered

  • Accommodation: Separated fully-and-semi renovated houses in the nature. They are fully functional and can host 4-6 people each. Please bring your own pillow (if any), sheets, towels, and personal hygiene items. You can also find a supermarket at the municipality. Also make sure you bring some warm clothes because at night it might be chilly.
  • Food: Breakfast and lunch according to your food preferences (vegan, non-dairy, meat etc.). The dinner is not included but you can find a supermarket in the municipality -2km away from the camp.
  • Transportation: A van can facilitate your transfer from the camp to the main town of Paranesti for walking, shopping, or eating.
  • Big conference room with basic equipment for sound recordings (if needed) and workshops.

We presume you're like Aerosmith: you don't wanna miss a thing. So, the camp can host you 1 day earlier if needed.

I included some outdoor activities I am sure will unlock your creativity! (details in the guide in the link below)

  • Inspirational yoga
  • Hiking in the Dionysian Nature of Paranesti
  • Nature Sound Recording
  • Stargazing – Astrography - Celestial Mythology (additional cost)

Got some wonderful ideas that have never seen the light? Join the other songwriting groups and give a boost to your dream by applying your songs for consideration as:

  • releases under Epsilon Records or diVerse Records
  • demos to GrammyU artists
  • releases under Schubert Musik and TV/cinema/Ads placement (licensing)
  • trademark song for the municipality of Paranesti

Below you can find some lists of songs with similar profiles to what we are looking for in all the projects. You can use them for references. Make sure you bring your own ideas too.

The admission fee for the Songwriting Retreat will be €450, the minimum number of participants is six (6).

Please transfer the amount before 14 June 2024 to Epsilon Records

NL72ABNA0484560727 (please include your full name, email, and artist name on the message as well).

We do not accept cancellations after 14 June 2024.

If the minimum number of participants is not reached, you will be fully refunded.

Before the event:

  • Join Facebook Group to stay in touch until we all meet (only if you are going to attend the event). I can help you out with the transfer from SKG airport to the camp, but for this I need to know the exact number of people and the time of the arrival (waiting time at the airport between flights 1-2 hours). You will find more details in the guide.
  • Make sure you hold an IPI code. If not, you can do it later on, but please arrange it as soon as possible.
  • You bring your own laptop, midi keyboard, soundcard, personal earphones (mic, small console, and earphones per team will be provided) and internet data. There will be Internet access, but the speed will vary since a part of Democritus University will be co-hosted in the camp that period.
  • You own a European health card in case of an emergency or a visit to the health centre.

Please find the guide attached with every detail it will be useful on your way.
