The first ever Salt Water Music Festival will take place in Destin on October 12-14, featuring major artists and talented songwriters. The three-day event is presented by Salt Water Vacations and the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation (MKAF) as a fundraiser for the foundation’s cultural arts initiatives.

Headlining on Thursday, October 12th is Grammy-winning R&B singer Macy Gray, best known for her raspy voice and hits like “I Try.” She’ll perform chart-toppers along with tracks from her latest album, backed by her band The California Jet Club.

Also taking the stage Thursday is Nashville singer-songwriter Josh Mirenda, writer behind country hits like Dierks Bentley’s “Somewhere on a Beach.” Joining him are:

  • Ben Burgess, known for “Whiskey Glasses” recorded by Morgan Wallen.
  • Jared Mullins, who has penned songs for Jake Owen and Chris Young.
  • Jordan Minton, writer of Dan + Shay’s smash “Tequila”.
  • and Jordan Reynolds, whose credits include multiple #1s by Keith Urban, Lady A, and Thomas Rhett.

On Friday the 13th, country duo LOCASH will headline with their hits like “I Know Somebody.” The duo of Chris Lucas and Preston Brust first paired up in 2008 and have since released three acclaimed albums.

The festival will have multiple food trucks, bars, merchandise sales, and meet-and-greets with the artists. It wraps up Saturday the 14th with a Singer/Songwriter Brunch at Soleil in Destin featuring Josh Mirenda and Gary Garris.

Festival tickets range from $50 to $1500. Proceeds will support MKAF’s arts education and programs. Ticket details are at MKAF.org.
