Savannah Stopover announced a portion of its lineup on Nov. 11 in anticipation of the 5th annual music festival. A roaring success in years past, the festival appears to be picking up speed – and more prominent names.
Musicians on their way to Austin’s SXSW Music Conference and Festival will stop into downtown Savannah and play alongside local bands in multiple venues, ranging in size from spacious to intimate. Savannah provides the ideal locale and audience for myriad genres of live music, as demonstrated over the past four years of successful Stopover performances.
The First Wave Lineup includes familiar acts like San Fermin, Fat Tony, and the PitchBlak Brass Band, as well as several lesser known names. The Second Wave Lineup is slated to be released Jan. 15, 2015.
A limited quantity of specially priced Early Bird 3-day passes are available from Nov. 11 until Nov. 21. Passes are currently $65 and can be purchased online.
The Savannah Stopover Music Festival will take place across Savannah’s Historic District March 5-7, 2015.
