Revival Fest returning to Savannah this fall

20 Jun 2017

MusicFile Productions LLC (the parent company of Savannah Stopover Music Festival) has announced Revival Fest will return to the grounds of the Georgia State Railroad Museum on Sept. 30.

The festival, which focuses on Southern music across a wide range of genres including blues, soul, Southern rock, folk, Americana, bluegrass and more, returns after a one-year hiatus. This year’s event will serve as the annual fundraiser for the Savannah Children’s Museum located adjacent to the festival grounds.

The family-friendly, all-day festival will feature 12 bands across two stages plus local and regional food trucks, craft beers and bourbons, as well as local vendors and kid-friendly activities. The festival takes place from 2-10 p.m. in the old Paint Shops and adjoining grove on the museum grounds.

“We’re thrilled to be working in partnership with Revival Fest again. It quickly grew to become one of Savannah’s favorite events and combining forces to help raise funds for the Children’s Museum allows us to take the event to the next level,” said Sandra Baxter, CEO of the Coastal Heritage Society, which oversees the Georgia State Railroad Museum, Savannah Children’s Museum, Old Fort Jackson, Pinpoint Heritage Museum and Savannah History Museum.

Kayne Lanahan, CEO of MusicFile Productions, added, “The enthusiasm for Revival Fest has been so heartwarming and we’re thrilled to be bringing it back in the same iconic location that made the first three years so special. We’re putting the finishing touches on a great musical lineup that we can’t wait to share with everyone in the coming weeks.”

A limited number of early bird tickets are now on sale for $29.50 for general admission and $74.50 for VIP tickets, with access to a VIP lounge, private restrooms, bar and free beer. Ticket prices will increase when the the full festival lineup is announced in July. Children younger than 10 are admitted free.
