Savannah main 620x300 SAVANNAH STOPOVER 2014 PREVIEW

Savannah Stopover has a few things that no other festival has: access to about every band driving from the east coast to SXSW, a beautiful urban setting and liquor that you can take outdoors. The festival acts as a pit stop for the bands taking their yearly pilgrimage to Austin, which means that some of the most interesting and buzziest bands will play tiny bars in the heart of a college  [READ ON]

There are some big surprises in the Bonnaroo announcement that, after weeks of teasing, was finally released last night. None are more shocking than the lack of Outkast as a headliner, though. Could Bonnaroo have realized that perhaps every other festival having the same [READ ON]

SAVANNAH STOPOVER ANNOUNCES LINEUP FOR FOURTH ANNUAL FEST

Logo 2014 Green 620x479 SAVANNAH STOPOVER ANNOUNCES LINEUP FOR FOURTH ANNUAL FEST

‘Tis the season once again — in the midst of festivals around the country revealing their lineups for this year, Savannah Stopover has joined the mix. Stopover may be brand new to the festival circuit, having started in 2011, but its three days in early March promise to be a riot. Among dozens of names, Wye Oak will headline along with Small Black, Oberhofer and Future Islands. Three Savannah-based labels will also host showcases, bringing out local and national talent alike.

The Georgia festival gets its name from the founding intention that bands would stop over in Savannah on their way to SXSW. After only four years, it’s well on its way to outgrowing its humble, sideshow beginnings. Not only will the music be amazing (cough cough Future Islands live), but the city of Savannah is inarguably charming. Oh, and tickets are a fraction of what you’ll pay at the larger festivals. See you there!

Anyway — Hangout Fest, which takes place every summer in Alabama, [READ ON]
