The 10-day Island Hopper Songwriter Fest moved the Fort Myers Beach this weekend.
This showcase, now in its sixth year, is a great way to see singer-songwriters perform in intimate settings on Captiva Island, Fort Myers Beach and historic downtown Fort Myers.
This award-winning festival includes more than 100 live performances (most of them are free) and more than 75 songwriters.
The sixth annual music fest continues to give fans the opportunity to meet the talented artists who write songs for country and rock superstars.
Attendees listened to their favorite songs at live music venues on Captiva Island Sept. 20 – 22 at several island venues. The annual festival then moved to downtown Fort Myers Sept. 22 – 25.
Island Hopper concludes on Sunday, Sept. 29 with several performances at venues in the afternoon. The finale is a ticketed poolside party with Rodney Atkins and Jerrod Neimann at Pink Shell Resort.
Island Hopper is presented by Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau, iHeartMedia, Cat Country 107.1 and BMI, the largest music rights organization in the U.S.
