Combustion Music is excited to announce the return of the Combustion Music Hope Town Music Festival for the weekend of December 1 - 3, 2023.

Since its first festival in 2014, The Combustion Music Hope Town festival has distributed over 1 million dollars to local charities including the dedication of the brand new basketball court in 2018.

Bringing songwriters and artists who have collectively written hundreds of #1 songs to this idyllic setting, be on the lookout for details to come, but mark your calendars now, and come help us celebrate this huge return.



The Combustion Music Hope Town Music Festival is a three-day-long celebration of music, song and giving, set against the spectacular tropical backdrop of the little island of Elbow Cay, Bahamas. Founded in 2013, the festival has brought big time songwriters, who collectively have written over 150 #1 hit singles, to this incredible community. "It was my goal to introduce many of my songwriter friends to this special island that my family and I have grown to love over the past 20 years, and to introduce Hope Town and its' residents to the incredible musical talent of these writers, and finally and most importantly, to raise a bunch of money for some very worthy charities," says Combustion Music founder and President Chris Farren.

The responses from the local community and the songwriting/music community have been incredible, with everyone pitching in to support three very worth charities; The Hope Town Fire and Rescue Department; Every Child Counts, an alternative education program for children with learning, developmental or physical disabilities; and Friends of the Environment, a local non-profit environmental organization devoted to preserving the Abaco's fragile environment and working towards a more sustainable future.
