Festival Description

The Better Angels Key West Songwriters Festival will make paradise even sweeter during the event’s annual installment in its island namesake. Each year the festival benefits a worthy charity by drawing attendees to enjoy more than 100 top-tier songwriters performing most-loved hits. Anchor-sponsor BMI will continue its widespread support of the fest, leading Key West’s annual transformation into a music mecca. The days between will showcase songwriters on Beaches, Boats and in many of Key West’s famous venues including the festival favorite Theatre Shows.
