Savannah, Georgia, November 16, 2021 — Savannah Stopover Music Festival today announced that more than 30 bands will perform at the 2022 festival, March 11-12, which will take place on the grounds of the Georgia State Railroad Museum. In 2020, Stopover celebrated their 10th anniversary as one of the best-curated music discovery festivals in the country.
Two-day General Admission and VIP tickets are on sale Tuesday, November 16, at 10 am via Eventbrite.
Festival founder Kayne Lanahan said of the 2022 event, “It’s heartening to return with such a strong lineup–one that includes some of the industry’s top rising stars, as well as returning fan favorites. This is a deep bench of talent across Rock, Americana, Punk, Blues, Indie Pop, and Country that we’re excited to host in such an iconic and beautiful Savannah location.”
Previously held in music clubs and venues throughout downtown Savannah, this marks the first time Stopover will take place at a new single-location venue. Historic, industrial and edgy, the Railroad Museum grounds, which include multiple indoor and outdoor areas, are a perfect backdrop for the southern-gothic soul of the festival.
A special preview video of the festival location can be found here. Festival producers will curate the lineup across five different stages, each with a unique look and feel.
