The 2017 Island Hopper Songwriter Fest will go on as planned, September 22 to October 1, on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel... because nothing stops the music!

We are thankful that our destination was spared the worst of Hurricane Irma. Our hearts go out to those affected by the storm, and we wish everyone a safe and speedy recovery. Island Hopper brings with it the healing power of music to uplift and unite our community, and it could not come at a better time.

It includes 159 live performances by 85 singer-songwriters in 24 unique, intimate venues. Featured artists include Brooke Eden, Lindsay Ell, and RaeLynn
