About the Key West Songwriters Festival

Celebrating its 17th year, The Key West Songwriters Festival
is the largest festival of its kind in the world.
Since 1997 BMI has been a charter sponsor of the festival and
has helped it grow into both a tourist attraction and favorite
of island locals.
The festival revolves around five days and nights of more than
25 free shows, staged at an array of the island’s most
popular drinking holes and hot spots, where live music bliss
introduces crowds to the faces, voices and stories behind
the songs.
Diverse lineups featuring more than 100 top songwriters
deliver rare, “Key West-only” moments: Informal adaptations of
Nashville’s signature in-the-round acoustic showcases dominate
much of the schedule, while an event-capping street concert
adds an enticing Mardis Gras fillip to the mix.
