When is the Savannah Stopover Music Festival?


Savannah Stopover Music Festival will take place Friday, March 11th and Saturday, March 12th, 2022. 

What’s Savannah Stopover Music Festival all about?


We started the festival in 2011 as a way for bands traveling down I-95 en route to SXSW to stop and play a show in a cool, small Southern city known for its hospitality. From there, it kind of spread like wildfire. We place a high priority on musical discovery across a wide range of indie music. You’ll see rising stars, fan faves and bands that are just under the radar!

Where does the Festival take place?


The 11th Annual Savannah Stopover Music Festival will take place on the grounds of the Georgia State Railroad Museum, located at 655 Louisville Rd, Savannah, GA 31401. Visit our venue page for more information!

What time should I get there?


Music is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. on Friday, March 11th and at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 12th. If you’re planning a trip from out of town, you’ll have plenty of time to explore Savannah

Stopover is in March. What’s the weather like in Savannah?

No. For safety reasons and the comfort of all guests, we ask that you refrain from bringing animals to Savannah Stopover Music Festival. 

However, service animals that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for those persons with disabilities are welcome. If you are bringing a service animal, you must check in at Festival HQ at the front gate each day to provide your contact information in case of emergencies, and to provide proof of current rabies vaccine for your service animal. 

* Any animal whose task is to provide protection, emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship, is not considered a service animal and will not be allowed into the venue.

* All service animals must remain by the handler’s side at all times and must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls.

* Service animals must be housebroken and well-trained. Anyone bringing an animal will be responsible for and liable for any damage or injury caused by the animal.

* Your service animal may be asked to leave the festival grounds if you are not able to maintain control of your animal, or your animal harasses, causes injury, or is otherwise a liability at any point during the festival. No refunds will be issued.
