Featuring more than 150 performing songwriters in 50-plus shows, the Key West Songwriters Festival brings together chart-topping hitmakers and emerging talents in an unparalleled five-day medley for music fans.

Audiences can savor everything from powerhouse country rock and blues to Americana Wednesday through Sunday, May 9-13, at concerts and jam sessions in intimate, casual island settings. Now in its 23rd year, the festival has become a tradition for an unparalleled group of writers and musicians.

The 2018 lineup includes Tyler Far, known for his hits “Redneck Crazy” and “Whiskey in My Water”; Walker Hayes, whose album “boom” is fast climbing the charts; country band LANCO of “Greatest Love Story” fame; Jeffrey Steele, whose credits include “The Cowboy in Me” for Tim McGraw; iconic Texas talent Robert Earl Keen and songwriting superstar Scotty Emerick.

Most shows feature a rotating group of writer/performers and many have no admission charge. Headquartered at Key West’s Smokin’ Tuna Saloon, 4 Charles St., the festival includes offerings staged at island city bars, restaurants, resort beaches and poolsides and even the Fury Catamaran during sunset cruises.
