The Savannah Stopover Music Festival today announced that the festival will return March 11-12, 2022, and 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.
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 are spread across 33 acres and include multiple indoor and outdoor areas, are a perfect backdrop for the southern-gothic soul of the festival, and an easy walk, bike ride, or drive from the city’s Historic District.
The new venue will feature multiple stages, a VIP Lounge, a food truck court and a vendor marketplace.
Stopover also announced that Athens band of Montreal, one of the internationally acclaimed bands to emerge from the Elephant 6 Collective in the 90’s, will headline the festival on Friday, March 11. Their self-released latest double album, “I Feel Safe With You, Trash,” was released in March of this year. The band, known for their artful, exuberant and lively performances, played Savannah Stopover in 2018. The full festival lineup, which will include additional headliners and over 35 bands, will be announced in November.
