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.
The 2018 Stopover was headlined by unique artists such as Pinc Louds, Deerhunter, Hot Flash Heat Wave, Priests, Surfer Blood, the Minks, Mike Krol, Bright Light Social Hour, Savannah’s own Dope KNife, and many more.
