2021 Festival Dates:
November 4th-6th, 2021

Lineup and Venues Coming Soon

We had a vision for the event this year that would build on the great inaugural event of last year, bringing together more than 5,000 people at 6 locations around the Shoals. Since 2019, we began actively planning for this year. As you're all aware, the world is continuing to find its footing as COVID-19 impacts our ability to gather in groups (large and small).

Unfortunately, it has recently become clear that for the health and safety of our performers, attendees and staff, we need to postpone this year’s festival until November 4-6th, 2021. We have a very exciting announcement to share soon about that. But it's safe to say that we have an even bigger event planned for next year, which will allow more opportunities for those attendees and performers. In this being said, please stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.

If you have any questions, feel free to the email event coordinator, Lillian Glanton at

Thank you,

Founder, Lillian Glanton and the Muscle Shoals Songwriters Festival Team
