Riad Beloiseau is a superb area of ​​Marrakech with 12 rooms on 1.5 hectares. It has a swimming pool, a steam room, a roof terrace and large living rooms. The space has been designed in an oriental style with a Morrocan flair.

During the camp, songwriters are divided into groups with pro-producers, where they will work in responding to live commercial briefs, for pitching to labels post-camp.

Producers joining the camp will be: Andrew Kingslow (Lily Allen, John Newman, Beverley Knight), Jon Kelly (Paul McCartney, Freddie Mercury, Kate Bush) and Jamie Duffin (Little Eye, Nikki Rogers, Ashton Lane)

Guests who join the camp will not only get to work with established, commercial producers, they will be welcomed to a playback session every night, with a very special unannounced A&R guest and sat down to an evening communal dinner.
