Get ready for the Second Annual Cosmic Songwriter Festival, May 15 through 18 in Bloomington, Indiana! The Cosmic Songwriter Festival 2024 will be the crown jewel of songwriting events in Indiana. Four nights of live original music in the Cosmic format, pairing two artists on stage at all times. Artists will trade songs and share the stories of their craft, drawing back the curtain to share their souls and what makes them tick. Sometimes performers even join in together, creating the magical moments that have become a signature of Cosmic Songwriter. This event is organized by Cosmic Songwriter, Inc. an Indiana Non-Profit, with support from VisitBloomington, Loren Wood Builders, Cornerstone Information Systems, Bloomington Roots, and many other generous sponsors.

This year's headliners include: Oliver Wood, Carrie Newcomer, Gabe Lee, Emily Nenni, Melissa Carper, Tré Burt, Spectator Bird and Caleb Stine.
