The annual Key West Songwriters Festival celebrates 25 years this year. Opening May 6, 2020, it’s five days and nights of music performed live by the artists that write many of the songs you know and love. The festival gives songwriters a chance to step out from behind the scenes and play songs they usually don’t get a chance to perform.
This year's headliners include Luke Combs, a multi-platinum country songwriter with hits like 'Hurricane,' and 'Beer Never Broke My Heart'; Matt Stell ('Prayed For You') and Niko Moon, known for songs he wrote for the Zac Brown Band.
VIP tickets to the main event at Truman Waterfront Waterfront Park Amphitheater can be bought online.
While the line-up isn't typically set until just before the event, it never disappoints. Enjoy the island air with five days of over 200 artists, 50+ shows, and good vibes. Keep abreast of scheduling, shows and tickets through the event Facebook page, and join the event mailing list.
Shows are known to take place across the island, from beaches to boats and bars. May is a great time to come, right before hurricane season begins and the summer heat rolls in.
