The Jam Room Music Festival will return to Columbia’s Main Street on Oct. 1 for the first time since 2019. The festival will feature two stages, one on Main Street and one on Hampton Street in front of the Columbia Museum of Art.

Headliners will be Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Titus Andronicus, both of whom are celebrating new releases.

“It’s great to have the Jam Room festival back and bringing live indie music to the heart of South Carolina,” said Jay Matheson, executive director and owner of the Jam Room Recording Studio. “After two years off due to the pandemic, we’ve been looking forward to bringing the festival back, and we couldn’t be more excited about this year’s lineup. It’s hard to believe we’ve been doing the festival for nearly a decade, and we’re still looking forward to growing it for years to come.”

Now in its ninth year, the festival has brought acts such as Superchunk, Blonde Redhead, Justin Townes Earle, Son Volt, Waxahatchee and Guided by Voices to Columbia.

In addition to the headiners, the festival will also feature Titan to Tachyons, Shiner, Bailey Road Band, the Explorer’s Band and Columbia’s own Dear Blanca. In all, up to 12 acts will perform, with several more to be announced.
