Get ready, this fall, all your favorite songwriters are hitting the beach! The fifth annual Island Hopper Songwriter Fest is returning to Fort Myers Beach on September 21- September 30. Enjoy live, free performances at your favorite beach establishments by 60 of your favorite songwriters.

Selected as one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events for 2018, the 2018 Island Hopper Songwriter Fest comes to the Fort Myers Beach area September 28 – 30.

With performances at Yucatan Beach Stand and other beachside establishments (many of them walking distance from the Lighthouse Island Resort property), this one of a kind event provides attendees with world-class performances in the heart of Fort Myers Beach.

Some of the 2018 Island Hopper singer/songwriters include Earl Bud Lee (“Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks), Dylan Altman (“Barefoot Blue Jean Night” by Jake Owen), Lee Thomas Miller (“Whiskey and You” by Chris Stapleton), Wendell Mobley (“There Goes My Life” by Kenny Chesney) and many more.

This year, The Beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel are rolling out the Island Hopper app designed to help Island Hopper fans plan their trips, find resort and hotel deals, learn about songwriters and venues, locate in-app maps, customize schedules and more. Also, iHeart Radio is launching Island Hopper Radio, a channel that includes music written by artists featured at the music festival.
