5th Annual RED LODGE SONGWRITER FESTIVAL

JUNE 18th, 19th & 20th, 2020 RED LODGE, MONTANA

Our Story

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. This is the place that displays songwriting at its highest level in the amazing mountains of Red Lodge, Montana. Park benches, bar stools, hotel lobbies, and parks become picking sessions.

We are looking forward to the 5th Annual June 18, 19, 20. 2020. The 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. 

Eighteen live performances, twenty four songwriters, eight venues, a songwriting contest and our Master Class round out next years festival. In addition to entertainment and education, this festival has the purpose to support music in our public schools. Over the last several years the RLSWF Inc. has donated over $20,000 to our public schools music department. 

All we’re missing is you. We would like to invite you to Red Lodge and our surrounding mountains which 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 included lodging and passes. Passes ranging from $150 – $5, and even a free show in Lions Park. There’s something for everyone. See you in June!

Our vision to create a world class event that brings songwriters and fans of great songwriting to Red Lodge each summer to share their talent and skills is well on its way to becoming a reality. Through this interaction of songwriters and their music we will create an inspirational culture that promotes creativity in songwriting, performing, and collaboration among the artists. Through your support as a sponsor, contributor, or fan we will continue to build this festival to become a one of a kind tourism event with recognition throughout the songwriting community.

Stay tuned for updates on our website or our Facebook page.

Our Board of Directors, James Dean Hicks, Teresa Muhic, Tera Reynolds,  Jayne Laurence & Mike Booth
