It's hard to believe we're just two weeks out from the 2018 Savannah Stopover Music Festival! We're starting to see some bands hit the road - a road that will lead them right to our front door - and lots of others are releasing new music ahead of their upcoming tours. In fact, we have lots of new records to discuss in this week's news along with lots of info you need about the festival too. Let's get into it:
2018 Stopover Ticketing Office
The 2018 Savannah Stopover Ticketing Office will be located at 112 West Congress St. Conveniently located in the middle of all of our venues, the office is next door to Savannah-favorite Sorry Charlie's Oyster Bar. The office will open at noon on Monday March 5th, and will open daily after that until the end of the festival. Please remember ALL ticket holders must visit the ticket office to redeem their ticket for a festival wristband BEFORE attending their first Savannah Stopover show. Hours for the Ticket Office are posted on our Tickets page.
***LOW TICKET ALERT*** There is a very limited quanitity of VIP passes remaining for the 2018 Savannah Stopover Music Festival. If you are interested in purchasing a VIP pass, we suggest you do so now.
