The Red Lodge Songwriters Festival is a special “coming together” time for songwriters and you, our fans, to gather and share this incredible musical experience in our intimate mountain community. We’re really excited to enjoy the friendship, creativity and togetherness with our fans and songwriters again in 2021.  

The show will go on. The health and safety of our fans, songwriters, volunteers, and community has always been our top concern. With the significant decline in infection rates and number of vaccines being administered in Carbon County and Montana we are confident we can host the 5th Annual Festival safely. For those that have attended our festival in the past, you know our shows are in indoor venues, bars, restaurants, Roman Theater and Bone Daddy’s. Theses shows are or will likely be sold out.  There will be some social distanced seating in Bone Daddy’s and places to separate yourself in the bars and restaurants. However, the Roman Theater will be at capacity, 250 people. Masks will be encouraged, but not mandatory.  If you would like a refund please request it by May 1, 2021. There will be no refunds after May 1, 2021.

About The Red Lodge Songwriter Festival

Welcome to the Red Lodge Songwriter Festival. For three days in June the streets of Red Lodge, bars, cafes, and parks become a gathering place for songwriters from Montana, Nashville, and around the country. Park benches, bar stools, hotel lobbies, and parks become picking sessions. This is the place displaying songwriting at its highest level in the amazing mountains of Red Lodge, Montana.

We are looking forward to the 5th Annual Festival June 24-26, 2021. The 2021 Red Lodge Songwriter Festival will feature great songwriters, new venues, and amazing learning opportunities.

Nashville Hit songwriters and Rising Stars will play their songs and tell the stories behind the songs.

“I’ve been playing songwriters festivals all over the country for the last 20 years and the Red Lodge Songwriter Festival is hands down one of my all time favs. The town is a gem in the Rockies, the people who support it are generous and enthusiastic, the weather is perfect and the music is awesome! Doesn’t get any better than Red Lodge Songwriter Festival” Brett Jones, Hit Songwriter

Twenty five live performances, twenty four songwriters, eight venues, a songwriting contest. In addition to entertainment and education, this festival supports music in our public schools. Over the last several years the RLSWF, Inc. has donated more than $40,000 to our public school’s music department.

All we’re missing is you. We would like to invite you to Red Lodge and our surrounding mountains we are proud to call home. We look forward to sharing this incredible weekend of songwriting, creativity, and music with you.

Tickets range from VIP packages from $1,750 – $1,050, which include lodging and passes. Passes range from $5 – $175, and even a free show in Lions Park. There’s something for everyone. See you in June!
