If ya’ll were lucky, you were in Savannah during the Savannah Stopover – the first big music event of the year. Today we’re bringing you a recap of Savannah Stopover, 2013.
This Stopover recap comes with our B&B’s heavy endorsement to attend the biggest music event of the year, the upcoming Savannah Music Festival. The Savannah Music Festival is a 3-week celebration of live music in Savannah from March 20-April 6, 2013.
What is Savannah Stopover?
Savannah Stopover is an indie music festival that takes place at the beginning of March in Savannah, GA. 2013 marks Stopover’s 3rd annual year of grabbing bands from around the country who are heading to Austin, TX for SXSW. There are venues for all ages, and 21+ performances also. Basically, Stopover brings music for everyone, with almost 100 musical acts making their mark on the musical heartstrings of Savannah.
How to Make the Most of All the Live Music in Savannah During Stopover:
To make the most out of all the live music in Savannah during Stopover NEXT year (because this recap helps you realize just how awesome Stopover really is), you’ve first got to get tickets. Stopover always has a lot of pricing options. You can get day passes for a single day, check out single shows per venue or purchase passes for the whole 3-day music event in Savannah with the added option of putting yourself on the VIP list for a few extra bucks.
Secondly, you’ve got to plan your weekend because there’s SO MUCH MUSIC to see. For the marquee events of Savannah Stopover 2013 we had:
- Thurston Moore, previously of Sonic Youth, performing on Thursday night at Knights of Columbus with his current band, Chelsea Light Moving.
- of Montreal performing at what can be called the main event. Forsyth Park on Friday night was PACKED with what seemed like at least 3000 people for the free concert
Who knows what’s in store for next year’s Stopover, but mark your calendars and follow Azalea Inn & Gardens on Facebook, because we’ll be reminding you!
What Kind of Bands Play at Savannah Stopover?
Local bands, Nashville bands, New England bands and many more from around the county come to Savannah Stopover in 2013. Local bands from Savannah including The Accomplices, mumbledust and Bear Fight! played. So did some fun New England bands like Mercies and Bronze Radio Return. Nashville made its mark on the Savannah music scene by lending us The Wild Feathers and Daniel Ellsworth & The Great Lakes.
