Featuring four stages in Tom Lee Park on the scenic Mississippi riverfront near downtown Memphis, The Beale Street Music Festival packs over 60 live acts into their three-day event.
This year being no exception, the festival continues to bring a diverse lineup of headliners, up-and-coming acts, past favorites and new talent to keep an eye out for their pending rise.
The closing acts included Alanis Morrisette, Queens of the Stone Age, Logic, Tyler the Creator, Jack White, Incubus Odesza, Post Malone and Erykah Badu.
But this strong line up digs deeper with Third Eye Blind. Cake, Clutch, North Mississippi Allstars, David Byrne, Gov't Mule, Franz Ferdinand, Action Bronson, The Flaming Lips, Margo Price, Ludacris and much more.
The blues tent schedule is great enough to never venture out to the other three stages for those seeking something more roots orientated: Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Marcia Ball, Delbert McClinton, Eddy "The Chief" Clearwater, and Tommy Castro and the Painkillers to name a few.
There is, a fifth stage billed at the back porch blues stage that is tucked away for those taking a break from the schedule shows to take in some local juke-joint style performers.
A friendly tenor amongst music fans, and never too crowded, the organizer does not oversell tickets helping assure lines are short, and crowds can circulate from stage to stage without concern. Drawing attendance regionally, Beale Street Music Festival continues to be the best bang for your festival buck.
