Savannah Stopover Music Festival announces today the complete schedule of 87 bands for the festival’s 7th anniversary, taking place March 9-11 in Savannah, GA’s beautiful and historic downtown district.
The schedule can be viewed here where festival goers can create personal schedules which can be viewed on mobile devices and shared on social media. The mobile app for Android and iOS will be released next week.
The festival, which takes place across numerous venues in Savannah’s historic district, “offers an affordable and walkable experience where you’re likely to see a slew of fantastic bands before they break out of the pack” says Kayne Lanahan, the festival’s CEO and Founder, adding “it’s very unique in today’s world of high priced concert tickets and mainstream headliner-driven festivals. If you haven’t heard of a lot of these bands yet, that’s the whole point.”

Ruby Amanfu and Julien Baker will headline Trinity United Church on 3/10 and 3/11, respectively.
