See Your Favorite Singer-Songwriters Perform in Fort Myers During This Festival

The Sixth Annual Island Hopper Songwriter Fest has returned to fill the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel with music and fun at a number of tropical venues. The festival will take place in Southwest Florida’s most beautiful barrier islands. It’s also a chance for fans to hear popular songs they’ve heard on country radio performed by the actual songwriters. Check it out on Wednesday, September 25th!

Island Hopper Songwriter Fest is a 10-day music festival in Southwest Florida. Now in its sixth year, it has drawn some of country music’s greatest singer-songwriters from Nashville and nationwide. Enjoy 80+ artists and 100+ shows, most of which are free and in small, intimate venues across Captiva Island, Fort Myers Beach and in downtown Fort Myers.

Headliners include Gone West, a new rock-country quartet featuring Colbie Caillat, in a show with special guest Ryan Hurd at Pinchers at The Marina at Edison Ford in downtown Fort Myers. Country music hit singer-songwriter Rodney Atkins brings his star power to round out the list of headliners. Atkins will perform on the final night of the festival, September 29, at Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina.

Other featured artists will include Kristian Bush, Jerrod Niemann, Angie Keilhauer, Ashley Ray, Badger and Rose, Bill Labounty, Bill Metts, Bryce Mauldin, Carlene Thissen, and many more.
