The second annual Island Hopper Songwriter Fest returns with dozens of star-studded performers set to play against the tropical backdrop of Captiva Island, Fort Myers Beach, and for the first time; historic downtown Fort Myers in Southwest Florida. Singer-songwriters who have penned No. 1 hits for such artists as Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley, and Lee Ann Womack will perform at multiple venues from September 17-27. Presented by BMI, iHeartMedia, Cat Country 107.1, and The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel, attendees will have the unique opportunity to experience the voices, back stories, and personalities of the songwriters in intimate island settings.
The festival kicks off September 17-20 on Captiva Island and features dozens of performances at the island’s most popular venues along the famous and eclectic Andy Rosse Lane. New to the festival, downtown Fort Myers will feature midweek performances highlighting the lively bars, restaurants, theaters, and boutiques in this revitalized historic river district. The festival closes the weekend of September 25-27 on Fort Myers Beach. With a little more of a rock n’ roll vibe, performances captivate crowds at trendy beach bars and restaurants in the island’s bustling Times Square area.
As you hop from island to island, all venues are easily accessible, and within walking distance.
