Thirty-seven bands have been revealed as the first slate of acts set to appear at the 2014 Savannah Stopover music event, set for March 6-8.
The event's full lineup, including local bands, will be announced Jan. 15.
Some of the venues hosting concerts include Moon River, Knights of Columbus, The Jinx, Hang Fire, and Congress Street Social Club. The final list of venues will be announced in early January.
A community concert will be held March 8 in Ellis Square. Bands will be announced soon for that free concert.
"We're thrilled to launch our fourth year of Savannah Stopover with such an exciting initial lineup," said Kayne Lanahan, founder. "Our focus continues to be on maintaining an affordable music festival experience for the region, showcasing outstanding emerging national talent, and luring newcomers to one of the most beautiful historic districts in the world! With the enormity of major music festivals, comes the exorbitant prices, and we've continued to see the joy of discovery missing.
"At Stopover, you might find your next favorite band in a small dive bar, the ballroom of a 19th century mansion, an outdoor beer garden, or a haunted cemetery. It's like no place else on Earth."
