Music lovers can celebrate a couple of big events in Savannah this spring.
Book your stay now to get in on the Savannah Stopover Festival, set March 11-12 on the grounds of the Georgia State Railroad Museum. The aptly-named festival started in 2011 as a place for bands to stop and play a show while traveling I-95 en route to the South By Southwest Festival in Austin.
This year’s incredible lineup features American Aquarium, Soccer Mommy, of Montreal, We Were Promised Jetpacks, Sarah Shook & the Disarmers, Surfbort, Sam Evian, and many more - almost three dozen up-and-coming acts.
Music starts at 5 p.m. on Friday, March 11, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 12. The schedule gives you plenty of time between shows to explore this amazing city. Tickets are affordable at $89 for the first tier and $99 for the second tier. VIP tickets start at $184.
Next up is the more well-known of the spring music events: The Savannah Music Festival, set March 24-April 9 at various venues throughout the city.

Other venues include the Trustee’s Garden, Yamacraw Center for the Performing Arts, Johnny Mercer Theater, Savannah Cultural Arts Center, and Rousakis Riverfront Plaza.
