2021 Key West Songwriters Festival

2021 Key West Songwriters Festival 

100+ Performers | 30+ Shows | Five Days/Nights 

We are thrilled to announce the 25th Annual Key West Songwriters Festival is taking place May 5th to 9th, and once again, our Key West Beach Resort plays host to some of the most talented artists and live musical performances.

While this year’s festival has been condensed with reduced capacities and transitioned to mostly outdoor performances, the organizers are focused on bringing back the music and putting the writers in intimate venues across the island.  You’ll want to add this music festival to your travel bucket list, here’s why:

The Key West Songwriters Festival introduces us to the faces, voices, and stories behind the songs. This year, more than 100 artists will perform at our unique venues and infamous bars and restaurants around town over five days and nights. The majority of the shows are free, and there are some ticketed events held at outdoor venues, including beaches, bars, boats, resorts, and historic theatres.

Some of the notable Key West Songwriter Festival alumni include Kacey Musgraves, Brad Paisley, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Combs, Maren Morris, and Cole Swindell, just to name a few.

Great first time in Key West, FL. Such a blast playing the @keywestsongwritersfestival ~ @bradpaisley
