The 30A Songwriters Festival is a three-day party which takes place along the outrageously gorgeous beaches of South Walton, unexpectedly romantic in wintertime. A series of magical moments unfolding over the course of the long weekend – old friends reuniting, new friendships being born…large audiences and performers enjoying days and nights of music, storytelling both poignant and humorous, spontaneous jams, Southern hospitality, delicious food and wine – the experience of 30A is guaranteed to make you feel exhilarated and alive. - Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles
I have played most of the songwriter festivals across the country. I can honestly say that the 30A Songwriters Festival is the most well run and most fun festival I have played. The fans are enthusiastic and were true fans of the “song.” The staff was bend-over-backwards helpful and the hospitality was over the top. I can’t wait to come back. - Joe Leathers
Of all the songwriter festivals I have played, the 30A Festival is my favorite. It is well organized by great people from the top down, very eclectic in its performing artists, and a great vibe in a sun kissed location!! Watch out Sundance, the 30A is going to be huge! - Pete Sallis
Playing the 30A Songwriters Festival 2010 was one of the recent highlights of Indigo Girls’ career. The venues were packed with music hungry listeners, and all of the artists participating were excited to be there. It was inspiring to sing with artists I had never met before but knew of, and I made my manager promise that I would be invited back. The inaugural year was a smashing success, and I am quite sure the festival will expand, year after year until 30A is brimming with music lovers from all over. - Emily Saliers, half of the duo the Indigo Girls
The 30A Songwriters Festival is one of the most diverse songwriter’s festivals I’ve ever been to. The wide range of songwriters performing, the great crowds, the unique venues, and the beautiful location all made for an incredible experience. I can’t wait to go back next year! - Shawn Mullins
The 30A Songwriters Festival is without a doubt one of the best music / writer events that I’ve ever been a part of. Top shelf organization, venues and talent have set it apart as one of the premier festivals for those who love to hear the songs from the heart of the songwriters. Mark your calendars... Mine is... I’m not missing it! - Brian White
I had the best time at 30A! I can’t think of a better way to spend a long weekend – great songs, great songwriters, beautiful beaches, good food and the best hospitality I’ve ever experienced at any music festival. Bar none. The locals were the highlight for me! - Chely Wright
My family and I really enjoyed our visit to the 30A Songwriters Festival. The uniqueness of being able to see and hear so much great music in funky bars, intimate theaters and amazing restaurants really gives this festival a down home personality all its own. It was well organized, the people were friendly, the food was great and there was cool music everywhere... what more could you want? - John Oates, half of duo Hall and Oates
“Once you unpack, you’ll forget where you’re from.” There is no better place to slow down, kick back and witness pure musical art in it’s original form... And, at the same time enjoy the most beautiful, laid back, and peaceful 20 mile stretch of beach in the U.S.A. It’s my home and I love the 30A Songwriters Festival!
