A CELEBRATION OF SONGWRITING

Historically, the 30A Songwriters Festival has featured established touring acts in various genres as well as up and coming new singer songwriters emerging on the national stage. Over 175+ artists perform over the four day weekend in  30+ venues, all located along the 30A resort corridor on the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida. Six acts headline the outdoor amphitheater stage on Saturday and Sunday each year of the Festival. This year, we welcome the new 2023 headliners Lyle Lovett, Morgan Wade, Gin Blossoms, Yola, Rickie Lee Jones and Steve Earle.

THE CULTURAL ARTS ALLIANCE

Since its inception in 2010, the 30A Songwriters Festival has become the premier songwriters festival in the United States and has won many national accolades with sell-out crowds every year. The Festival is co-produced by Russell Carter Artist Management and the Cultural Arts Alliance (CAA) of Walton County and is a major fundraiser for the CAA.

As the creative core of our community for three decades, the Cultural Arts Alliance is a Local Arts Agency that fosters creativity in Walton County, Florida through the inclusive and collaborative advancement of the Arts. Through advocacy efforts, support for the creative sector, and production of arts and educational programing, the CAA provides opportunities for residents and visitors to experience diverse forms of art and learning, connecting them to a broader view, critical exploration and answers only the Arts have the power to provide.

ADVANCING THE ARTS THROUGH YOUR SUPPORT 

100% of the Festival’s net proceeds support the not-for-profit organization’s mission to advance the Arts in Walton County through leadership, advocacy, funding, programs, and education.
