SAVANNAH STOPOVER has announced the second wave of bands for the annual indie fest.
This wave includes a healthy dose of rock n' roll to add to the electro-dance picks of Wave 1. Stopover's taste for Appalachia-influenced folk and country's here, too, plus some hip-hop and regional talent from Athens and Atlanta.
Can we get a round of applause for our rad locals on the list?
Local label Furious Hooves will have their own showcase, and bands that submitted via Sonicbids will be announced in the coming week.
3-day passes ($75), single day passes ($30) and 3-day VIP passes ($125) are available via Ticketfly.
There's a lot to love out there; have a listen to the latest additions below:

Rocco DeLuca (429)
Alanna Royale Powerhouse vocalist Royale wowed the crowd at The Jinx when she opened for Hurray For the Riff Raff in 2014.
