The Jan. 12-15 festival also features main stage performances by North Mississippi Allstars and Lee Ann Womack, in addition to nighttime sets by Charles Kelly of Lady Antebellum, Patty Griffin, Emily Saliers, Shawn Mullins, Mike Reid and Craig Wiseman, among others. 

The festival transforms amphitheaters, restaurants, theaters, bars and other locations across Florida’s South Walton County into live music venues that range in capacity from 75 to 500 seats indoors and 5,000 seats outdoors. The lineup is 175 artists strong. 

The festival is presented by Grand Boulevard at Sandestein and co-produced by Russel Carter Artist Management and the Cultural Alliance of Walton County. Proceeds benefit the Cultural Arts Alliance and help it achieve its goal of advancing art throughout the county.

“The 30A Songwriters Festival is a unique cultural event like no other in this area. The Festival brings together nearly every South Walton community and many businesses to showcase our home as a destination not only for it’s beautiful beaches but also for its creative excellence,” festival co-producer and Cultural Arts Alliance director Jennifer Steele said in a statement.

The festival has once again partnered with NPR’s “Folk Alley,” who will conduct artists interviews and film performances in home studio on the 30A.
