Chain of Flowers

Heading into its 7th year, the three-day festival is widely recognized for its affordability, hospitality and focus on up-and-coming acts. Originally conceived as a “stopover” for bands heading down I-95 to Austin, Texas for the annual SXSW Music Conference, the Savannah festival quickly became a destination unto itself.

The festival, which takes place across numerous venues in Savannah’s historic district, “offers an affordable and walkable experience where you’re likely to see a slew of fantastic bands before they break out of the pack”  says Kayne Lanahan, the festival’s CEO and Founder, adding “it’s very unique in today’s world of high priced concert tickets and mainstream headliner-driven festivals. If you haven’t heard of a lot of these bands yet, that’s the whole point.”

Kishi Bashi

Athens, Georgia-based Kishi Bashi will kick off the festivities on March 9th with a performance at Ships of The Sea’s North Garden. The former member of of Montreal released his third album, Sonderlust, in September 2016 to widespread critical acclaim, with NPR stating,  “Throughout the album, Kishi Bashi broadens his palette, rendering his sound ever more frantic, unpredictable, digital and danceable.”
