The Savannah Music Festival is moving to an online platform to deliver some performances to fans and ticket holders during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tune in to YouTube, Facebook, or Instagram at 12:30 p.m. everyday through April 11 to see what the 2020 artists have put together.

“Live music is irreplaceable, but in the absence of our annual gathering, our team is glad to offer this online substitution," artistic director Ryan McMaken said in a press release.

The 17-day festival was supposed to start this past week in historic venues and theaters in Savannah, but concerns over the pandemic stopped the performances.

Some of the performances you can expect to see during the online series are Germán López, Amythyst Kiah, Steve Riley, and Martin Hayes.
