2020 Apply to Play the Festival

Thank you for your interest in playing the 36th Annual Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival.

Festival dates for 2020 are November 5th - 15th.


We are primarily interested in individual songwriters wishing to have their music heard in “rounds” with other songwriters. We can consider duos and trios, but very seldom have an opportunity for bands as our venues tend to be intimate. 

The Festival will take place in over two dozen venues in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach, AL and Perdido Key/Pensacola, FL area.

We are primarily Country and Americana music oriented. However, we will entertain applications from all musical genres.

Songwriters are paid $75.00 per performance. Performances average one hour-fifteen minutes. We attempt to book more, but guarantee three performances.

Songwriters receive three nights lodging and noon meals while at the Festival. It is a tremendous help if the songwriter is in a position to arrange his or her own lodging.

All transportation is the responsibility of the songwriter.

Deadline to apply is June 1, 2020.

We anticipate extending invitations during the month of June, 2020.
