If you haven’t stood by the side of the stage with a cold beer in your hand listening to some blistering southern rock or blues at Grant’s Lounge in Macon, you’ve missed one of the great music spots in all of the south. It’s old school in the best possible way and it’s time to hit Grant’s Lounge and 19 other venues in Macon in just a few short weeks!
Bragg Jam Music Fest in Macon, GA is Saturday, July 30th featuring 95 performances across 20 stages; by far the biggest lineup in the festival’s 15+ year history.
We’re all over this and not just because it’s The Year of Georgia Music. We love cross pollinating with our Georgia music-mates all the time and so for the 3rd year, Savannah Stopover is taking a bus-load of music lovers from Savannah to Macon for the fest. Sort of a reverse Stopover!
The festival has just released its full schedule with performance times by stage so it’s time to start planning your day to see great acts like Shakey Graves, Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors, Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, The Weeks and many other Stopover faves like Alanna Royale, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Susto, Great Peacock… and that’s just for starters. Stopover will have it’s own stage at Bragg Jam located at Fresh Produce. It’s a vinyl record shop which also sells fresh produce (yes, it’s as cool as it sounds) and several of your favorite Savannah bands will be playing there including Triathalon, DIP, and Sunglow. You can download the schedule here
If you want to jump on the bus, it departs downtown Savannah at noon on Saturday, July 30th and returns Sunday July 31st, early afternoon. Discounted package prices which include festival tickets, RT transportation, hotel, and free beer and lunch on the bus are detailed here. Advance reservations are required and space is limited. You can also follow the event on Facebook.
We’ve had an absolute blast every year we’ve done this! It seems like the entire city of Macon turns out for Bragg Jam and Savannahians will feel right at home with Macon’s open container law; permitted in the Festival District just for this one day. (Tip: don’t miss their Food Truck Alley!)
