The 2013 Savannah Stopover Music Festival is taking place March 7th to 9th in the historic district of beautiful Savannah, GA. It's the perfect gig for touring bands from the Northeast on their way down Interstate-95 and across I-10. It's a great opportunity to play a show, earn some gas money, have a nice bed to sleep in, and eat some fantastic southern food- all in a city known for its hospitality and funky and artistic vibe.
Submissions are being accepted from both local Savannah bands and those heading to Texas. Local bands are chosen to play day shows or as an opening act for select touring bands. The focus is on up and coming bands with a significant amount of local, regional or national press and buzz. At least 2 Sonicbids bands will be selected to perform.
The small, vibrant coastal community is rife with a unique brand of low country hospitality and southern Gothic ambiance, music-hungry demographic, and established arts community. The four-day festival merges music, visual arts, technology and film components in an intimate, historical setting and at a price unrivaled by any music festival of like scale and scope. Touring bands will be compensated based on their draw. Artists are also able to sell merchandise and keep the proceeds. Over 80 bands will perform on 10-12 different stages at various venues in the historic district with capacities ranging from 120-500.
The festival takes place just in time for the end of classes for 6000 Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD). Bands will have an opportunity to play at numerous venues across the historic district on Thursday night, Friday and Saturday. There will also be a VIP Artist Lounge area for bands, press and select fans to interact. Bands will be able to stay in local homes and be treated to band dinners and daily specials from across Savannah's restaurant and retail community.
