The Key West Songwriters Festival has cancelled the 2020 event due to the pandemic and announced the dates for the 2021 festival. The songwriters celebration returns to the island May 5-9, 2021 with its annual gathering of hit making writers and up-and-coming talent.
“Back in April we had to reschedule the event for October 2020, hoping COVID-19 would be a distant memory by then but clearly we’re not where we all had hoped we’d be,” said Charlie Bauer, KWSWF founder. “At this time, we’re seeing the same challenges of safely gathering people in big groups, so while it’s not an easy or quick decision, it’s the right decision. We are focused on playing our part in getting through these difficult times and we look forward to the 25th installment of the Key West Songwriters Festival in May of 2021. Bringing the music, fans, industry, and business back to Key West will be a major factor on the road to recovery. Our festival has not only become a benchmark for songwriters but also an important part of the local economy.”
Ticket holders for the 2020 festival can expect to receive an automatic and full refund within 7-10 days. More information about the lineup, scheduled events and other info can be found at keywestsongwritersfestival.com.
Over the years, the festival has become a proving ground for breaking new talent and is one of the most sought-after invites within the Nashville songwriting community. Notable Key West Songwriters Festival alumni include Kacey Musgraves, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Cole Swindell and many more.
