Savannah GA concerts; Tybee Post Theater Music Festival

Grammy-winning folk rock duo from Atlanta indigo girls are headlining the first edition Tybee Post Theater Music Festival. The already sold out festival promises to be an exciting community event that will not only raise money for the Tybee Post Theater but ensure they can continue to entertain Tybee Island and the Savanah area for the year to come.

Tybee Post Theater only seats 210, so the festival is taking it outside to the grounds in front of the Tybee Hotel in a callback to past beach festivals.

“We really wanted to have recognizable names and give importance and weight to the festival. At the time, Tybee was having a music festival on the beach and wanted to rekindle that feeling of coming together as a community and having a great day on the beach.

Besides Indigo Girls (which would have been a pretty big draw on its own), the festival features two stages with performances by an eclectic mix of popular and local artists spanning all genres from reggae to surf rock to Americana. .

“It was reflective of what we do in theater,” Goetz explained. “We were very intentional about having a wide variety. We didn’t want to lock ourselves into a specific genre that we had to reproduce every year. We wanted to celebrate all genres of music.

The festivities kick off at noon with Savannah surf rockers The Aloha Joes, who always make every show a party. Next on the bill are The Tamsan Atlanta vocal group that has been performing for over 50 years in one iteration or another.

Tybee Post Theater also ensures that the festival is environmentally friendly by working with Fight Dirty Tybee to ensure the beach is kept clean and by trying to eliminate single-use plastic items.

Based on ticket sales, Goetz expects an attendance of 800 people. Thanks to successful early ticket sales, the Tybee Post Theater has already booked next year’s music festival. And the theater is booked every Friday and Saturday until next June with films and concerts.

“It serves as a fundraiser for the Tybee Post Theater, so it’s really important and it means a lot to us that people are really excited about it, want to support it and have a good time,” Goetz said.
