St. Augustine will again host one of the biggest music festivals in the southeast this September when the Sing Out Loud Music Festival returns for its sixth season. Sing Out Loud 2023 takes place on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, from Friday, September 8 through Sunday, October 1.
In 2016, local musicians and music lovers organized the first Sing Out Loud Music Festival, which offered nine days of free concerts and featured an amazing lineup of national, regional, and local musical artists. Now, the event has expanded to include nationally known musicians, the St. Augustine Songwriters Festival, and the Lincolnville Porch Fest. In addition, musicians will perform on multiple stages or "showcases" throughout the area.
