Start your countdown to the Island Hopper Songwriters Fest. Our premier music festival is returning September 17–26, 2021, celebrating some of the greatest singer-songwriters and emerging artists from Nashville and beyond. Listen to free live music and hear personal stories from musicians who have penned songs for the world’s biggest artists, all taking place in intimate, outdoor venues across downtown Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, and Captiva Island.
You can get a sneak peek into the artists who will be performing at the festival by tuning into Songs from the Sofa. This virtual series airs on the third Thursday of every month on the Island Hopper social media pages, featuring artists sharing their music and personal tales. Listen in live or look back at our playlist that has featured singer-songwriter talents such as Devin Dawson, Bridgette Tatum, Danny Myrick, and Parmalee.
