The Daytona State College Palm Coast Amphitheater is at 3000 Palm Coast Parkway SE, Palm Coast. The Palm Coast Arts Foundation stage is located at 1500 Central Avenue, Palm Coast. Unlike other musical festivals where audience members listen to song after song from a full band, the Palm Coast Songwriters Festival provides a unique, more intimate experience between the artist and the listener as the songwriters will often share the meaning behind their lyrics. This 3-day event allows the audience to go ‘behind the curtain’ and see the faces, listen to the voices and hear the stories behind some of the most popular songs of yesteryear and playing on the radio today. Early bird ticket pricing is available through Feb. 8 and start at $8. Single day, and three-day ticket options are available, including a three-day VIP Gold package that includes dinner Friday evening and an after-show meet and greet with the writers. Sponsorships are also available. For more information, visit www.PalmCoastSongwritersFestival.com
