The Better Angels Music Key West Songwriters Festival will make paradise even sweeter during the event’s 15th annual installment in its island namesake.
Benefiting the Muzak Heart & Soul Foundation, the festival will feature more than 100 top-tier songwriters performing most-loved hits. Anchor-sponsor BMI will continue its widespread support of the fest, leading Key West’s annual transformation into a music mecca.
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 20 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.
