More Information

In 2012, Lyrics on The Lake began as a lakeside fundraising pool party, bringing together a group of local Smith Mountain Lakers with hearts for songwriters, and two songwriters with hearts for people.

Nine years later, we’ve maintained LOTL as a FREE Festival to attend and have become the largest songwriter's festival on the east coast. Each year Lyrics On The Lake has grown. In 2016 we hosted over 50 songwriters at 10 venues over 5 days.

This year we are excited to be able to give back to the music community that gives so much to us by donating to The Musicpreneur Storehouse as well as the Central and Southwest Virginia Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Over the half decade, Lyrics on The Lake, has hosted over 200 songwriters as well as raised over $100,000 for charity. In 2018 and '19 we welcomed over 6,000 attendees to the lake and festival.

We look forward to seeing you at the lake this year!
