NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The lineup for the world’s largest songwriters-only festival will be released Tuesday.

The five-day Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival is also back in-person and celebrating its 30th anniversary.

This year's festival will feature more than 300 songwriters at nine venues.

People who attend will hear recognizable artists and songwriters, but also some newcomers.

The festival was established by the National Songwriters Association International and every genre is represented.

"All of the writers performing at Tin Pan South are donating their time to allow us to raise money around the festival. We do have a panel of industry professionals who makes sure it’s an amazing festival that's going to make the Nashville Songwriters Association proud and the city of Nashville proud. I think we've really done that this year," Festival Director Jennifer Turnbow explained.

This is the first time in two years the festival will be back in-person with COVID-19 policies varying at each venue.

Turnbow said the festival is a magical experience.

"I love that they play their hits but they also play new songs that they're writing and excited about. Then they also play you the songs that never made the radio, maybe they were a deep album cut or they never ended up really doing anything commercially," Turnbow said.

Passes to the festival went on sale at 10 a.m. on Tuesday. Tin Pan South runs from March 29 to April 2.

The full lineup can be viewed on the festival's website.
