Anti Social Camp is the first global festival to feature 150 creatives to celebrate the art of collaboration,” the announcement said, calling the event “SWSW for songwriters.”

Anti Social Camp is a tool that reminds the music industry of New York’s legacy and its significant talent pool ready to change the game there.”
