Savannah Stopover Festival Preview Playlist
We here at Trueblue are excitedly counting down the hours until we arrive in Savannah, Georgia for the upcoming Savannah Stopover Festival. The festival, which was concieved as a “stopover” for bands on their way to Austin for the South By Southwest Festival, is now in it’s fourth year and has featured an impressive lineup each of it’s incarnations. This year’s lineup features so many solid acts we gave up on trying to select just a few songs from each and decided to feature an entire LP or EP from the bands on this year’s bill on our playlist, which you can check out below. Even if you’re not making it to the festival or SXSW this year, it serves as a good indicator of what’s currently happening in independent music right now:
The Savannah Stopover Festival is similar to SXSW in that it takes over Savannah’s downtown district, allowing attendees to roam from venue to venue and catch great acts basically every hour, all within walking distance of each other. Trueblue will be live on site reporting all weekend with photos, show reviews and band features, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the best of the fest. There are still a few very reasonably priced tickets left for the event, head over to the Savannah Stopover website for all the details. See you folks down on Tybee Island!
