Savannah Stopover Music Festival capitalizes on the logistical good fortune of Savannah, Georgia’s proximity to interstates 95 and 10 by presenting traveling musicians with a welcoming place to play en route to Austin’s prestigious SXSW Music Conference.
The small, vibrant coastal community is rife with a unique brand of low country hospitality and southern gothic ambiance, not to mention home to a burgeoning music scene, music-hungry demographic, and an established arts community. The three-day festival puts a premium on musical discovery in an intimate, historical setting at a price unrivaled by any similar music festival.
Heading into it’s EIGHTH year, the festival has hosted such notable up and comers as Grimes, of Montreal, The War On Drugs, Future Islands, Mac Demarco, Margo Price, Julien Baker, St. Lucia, DIIV, Ra Ra Riot, St. Paul & The Broken Bones and hundreds of others before they broke out of the pack. Offering three days of musical discovery, music fans can hop from venue to venue, beer in hand, keeping track of all of their favorite new acts (yep, you can drink in the streets here, as long as you stay in the historic district).
As the festival has grown, more and more regional and national acts of the established nature have decided to make Savannah Stopover a destination in its’ own right and we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome them. A collaborative effort of MusicFile Productions and countless volunteers, partners, vendors, and sponsors, from March 8th-10th, 2018, the Savannah Stopover will showcase 80+ bands in small to mid-size venues across Savannah’s walkable Historic District.
