Savannah Music Festival announces 2016 season lineup

The Savannah Music Festival‘s new website went live just a few moments ago, and of course that also means the 2016 lineup has now been made public. (Keep in mind that some rock and pop acts are typically added closer to the 17 day event in March and April.)

UPDATE: Check out the SMF’s 2016 digital brochure (just click on it to enlarge):
