Rockin' Key West: RokIsland Fest Brings Legendary Music Under the Sun

Key West is about to transform into 'RokIsland' from Jan. 17-20, hosting a four-day musical extravaganza. RokIsland Fest, set in the open-air paradise of Key West, is gearing up to welcome legends of alternative and hard rock. Think Bret Michaels, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Stone Temple Pilots, and a lineup that reads like a who's who of rock royalty.

This is not your average music festival. Set against the backdrop of Key West's balmy winter, the Coffee Butler Amphitheater in Truman Waterfront Park provides an intimate setting that's a far cry from the usual arena scene. It's like a family reunion, if your family consisted of rock icons and their die-hard fans.

Eddie Trunk, a name synonymous with rock, hosts the event, ensuring a blend of contemporary vibes with a solid nod to the golden days of rock. From 5 p.m. till the stroke of midnight, expect adrenaline-fueled performances that'll take you back in time or introduce you to the new age of rock.

And it's not just about the music. The amphitheater offers a feast for the senses with diverse food options and bars. But the fun doesn't stop there. Daytime in Key West means sailing with live tunes, VIP parties, and the island’s signature eco-tours, dining, and water activities.

For the full experience, grab a multi-day package with accommodations, VIP access, and exclusive performances. Or, if you're just passing through, single-day passes are up for grabs too.
