MusicFile Productions, LLC (the parent company of Savannah Stopover Music Festival) announced today the creation of a new fall festival celebrating the best in Southern tinged music, local and regional foods, crafts, beer and spirits.

Revival Fest will take place Sept. 14 at the Paint Shop and adjoining grove at the Georgia State Railroad Museum on Louisville Road.

The day-long festival will feature two stages, 12 bands, an authentic pig roast, and an oyster roast. Additional plans include a craft bourbon tasting tent, local and regional craft beers as well as select food and crafts vendors.

Sandra Baxter, executive director of The Coastal Heritage Society, added: "we are very excited about hosting Revival Fest at the Georgia State Railroad Museum in an area that will be open to the public for the first time ever. This event is expected to be a fantastic fit with our site and mission and should prove to be a win-win for us, the Revival Fest producers, the audience, and our community as a whole".

A portion of the proceeds of the event will benefit the Savannah Children's Museum, also located on the site.

Music for the festival will focus on blues, Southern rock, Americana, bluegrass, gospel, folk and soul with a combination of local, regional and national acts. A sneak peek is available at  

According to MusicFile Productions CEO Kayne Lanahan "it's an idea we've been kicking around for a year or two; to marry the Roots/Americana revival in music with our great local and regional food; sort of like a New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival for the Low Country. There are all these amazing people here brewing, growing, cooking and creating amazing things. We wanted to bring them together in one big celebration."

The full lineup and schedule will be announced July 2. Tickets will go on sale at noon that day at the Savannah Box Office. Festival goers will have the option to choose a Festival Pass that is 'music only' or one that includes the Pig Roast and Oyster Roast. Additional food and beverage options will be available for purchase on the festival grounds.
