This year’s fest is being held March 7-10 in various venues in the historic district of Savannah, Ga.
As the name of the festival implies, the idea behind Savannah Stopover is to feature up and coming indie acts that are making their way to play SXSW Music and Media Conference in Austin, Texas, March 13-18.
With more than 2,000 acts playing SWSW, how do the organizers behind Savannah Stopover pick their lineup? Here’s your answer: The acts “have been hand-curated across multiple genres to represent an ideal microcosm of emerging excellence.”
The 2012 lineup includes The War On Drugs, Grimes, Caveman, Oberhofer, Prince Rama, The Love Language, The Men, The Knocks, Jukebox, Little Tybee, Zambri, Quilt, Royal Baths, Born Gold, Turbo Fruits, Eternal Summers, The Big Sleep and many more.
Tickets are on sale now. Fans can choose between day passes ($15-$30), four-day festival passes ($75) or VIP passes ($120).
