Launched in 2017 in Shelby Farms Park, Mempho’s Memphis counterpoint to the Beale Street Music Festival in May brought music back into the country setting for the first time in nearly two decades.
The festival ran at Shelby Farms into 2019, with an impressive line-up of headlines over the years, including Post Malone, Wu-Tang Clan, Jack White’s Raconteurs, and Jason Isbell. However, the 2020 festival has been canceled due to COVID-19.
Last year, Mempho found a new home in the Radians Amphitheater in Botanic Garden. The transformation was a success, as the festival ran out all three days.
