MusicFile Productions, producers of the Savannah Stopover Music Festival, has officially announced the lineup for the third installment of Revival Fest, which will take place in Savannah at the Old Pain Shop and adjoining grove at the Georgia State Railroad Museum on Saturday, September 12, 2015.
The festival, which places a strong emphasis on Southern music, celebrates a variety of genres, from the old school electric blues of Robert Lee Coleman (who played in both Percy Sledge’s and James Brown’s bands) to rising Americana/Folk star Christopher Paul Stelling. Festival founder Kayne Lanahan added, “We love the juxtaposition of old and new; Southern Culture On The Skids next to Those Darlins; Robert Lee Coleman on the same lineup as 22 year old Parker Millsap. I think it celebrates what’s grounded and real in music today across generations.”
The festival will also feature a pig roast, craft beers, bourbon and other Southern fare. Added Lanahan, “We call it a festival, but it’s really more like a giant backyard party with 14 bands playing- it’s sort of our anecdote to the giant 3-day festival.”
Attendees can bring their own lawn chairs, and the festival is partnering with Uber to ensure everyone has a safe, reliable ride to Revival Fest. Download the Uber app and sign up with promo code REVIVALFEST, or sign up online for your first ride free (up to $20): http://uber.com/go/REVIVALFEST
