Full Schedule Link below for 2011 Savannah Stopover
The Savannah Stopover Music Festival officially released its full 2011 festival schedule, allocating over 60 performances across 10 venues. The Festival will feature 20 shows that will end by 10pm, with the remaining taking place in Savannah’s traditional late night music club venues.
The festival also announced that upstarts Twin Tigers and Oberhofer will play closing night, March 12, with Savannah’s own CUSSES opening.
Twin Tigers hails from Athens and is signed with Old Flame Records. Often compared to Sonic Youth, a recent tour with Minus the Bear, and opening gigs for Interpol and The Hold Steady, has put this Georgia band on the map.
Oberhofer is an as-yet unsigned band out of Tacoma and Brooklyn, currently on tour with Tapes N’ Tapes. Brad Oberhofer – the brains behind the operation – plays, writes and records albums himself, but live shows feature him backed by a full band.
Both Twin Tigers and Oberhofer are headed to SXSW by way of the Stopover.

The inaugural Savannah Stopover Festival, capitalizing on the logistical good fortune of Savannah, Georgia’s proximity to interstates 95 and 10, will present traveling musicians with a welcoming place to play en route to Austin’s prestigious SXSW Music Festival. The small, vibrant coastal community is rife with a unique brand of lowcountry hospitality and southern gothic ambiance, not to mention home to a burgeoning music scene, music-hungry demographic, and established arts community. The four-day festival will merge music, visual arts, and technology components – much in the spirit of SXSW itself – in an intimate, historical setting and at a price unrivaled by any music festival of like scale and scope.
A collaborative effort of MusicFile Productions and countless volunteers, partners, vendors, and media sponsors, the Savannah Stopover will showcase over 50 bands in more than ten local venues. Bands will enjoy the quirky, shamelessly social elements of Georgia’s Hostess City while festival-goers will be exposed to up-and-coming bands in closer, more personal environs.
The Festival is being ticketed with four-day and single-day passes that allows access to all shows/venues up to venue capacity. Get your passes by clicking on the ShowClix button on any page of the website.
