More than a dozen bands have been announced for the 2nd annual Revival Fest, Sept. 20 on the Georgia Railroad Museum Grounds. Presented by MusicFile Productions, the fine folks who give us the annual Savannah Stopover each spring, Revival Fest spotlights Southern music, representing seven states in total.
Although several have been to Savannah before, a number will be making their local debuts.
The biggest names are Futurebirds, Water Liars, Packway Handle Bands and Family & Friends (from Athens), the David Wax Museum (Charlottesville, VA), the Cedric Burnside Project (Holly Springs, MS) and Roadkill Ghost Choir (Deland, FL), Blank Range (Nashville, TN) and the Savannah bands Velvet Caravan, Waits & Co. and Sweet Thunder Strolling Band.
The all-ages event (noon-11 p.m.) will be followed by a late night jam session at The Jinx. Advance purchase tickets are $35 and are on sale 7/9/14 at ticketfly.com.
