The family that gave us Live Wire Music Hall — operating as LOVE MUSIC AND LIVE WIRE SOUNDS — is throwing an ambitious Savannah event from June 21-23: the Savannah Summer Solstice Music and Arts Festival.

The 3-day event will be held at Red Gate Campground, just off Chatham Parkway near the intersection with Veterans Parkway.

A few details from the latest email:

You can also find more information on the Savannah Solstice Facebook friend profile, Facebook page, and Facebook event listing.

Given the time of year, the likely heat, the proximity to the city, and the likelihood that most attendees will be from the immediate area, I would guess that most attendees will buy day passes rather than camp out all weekend. But we’ll see.

Here’s a sampling of some of the acts already booked:
