If you’ve yet to listen to music composed and performed by Lucas Hoge, you’re in for a treat. He’s the founder of the Belize Songwriter Festival and you’ll be inspired by him after getting a taste of his music. The Billboard-topping songwriter and producer/star of Hoge Wild, came up with the idea for the BSF after a small musical session hosted at the Lodge at Jaguar Reef in Belize in the summer of 2022. 

“I truly fell in love with this place and the people,” said Hoge. “Being able to work with my partners and our sponsors to bring this festival to life is simply incredible. We look forward to many years of sharing Hopkins Beach Belize with not only my songwriting peers but friends and fans from all over the world.”
