2018 Beale Street Music Festival

Beale Street Music Festival

Returning to Memphis for its 42nd year, the three-day Beale Street Music Festival is set for May 4-6, 2018. The city’s biggest party will feature 60+ artists performing on four different stages in downtown Memphis. The festival has earned a reputation as being particularly fan-friendly, affordable, and offering one of the best lineups for any large festival. With ticket prices consistently below $100 for a three-day pass, BSMF is an anomaly price-wise and doesn’t sacrifice on big names in the lineup (most other festivals of comparable offerings are twice that price). In addition, the location’s proximity to downtown Memphis makes it easily accessible for attendees who can come and go as they please, and visit some of downtown Memphis’ small bars and clubs, where there will undoubtedly be live music acts playing as well.

A large part of the appeal of the festival comes from the fact that there are acts to suit a remarkable compendium of musical tastes. Thanks to the wide scope of artists— you can see everything from Snoop Dogg and the Alabama Shakes to Canned Heat and Patti Labelle, to The Avett Brothers and Ed Sheeran to Wale and Slash—a diverse range of spectators attend, giving the festival both an eclectic and inclusive vibe. This all-encompassing nature is undoubtedly part of the reason that Beale Street Music Festival made the list for Fuse’s Top 22 Festivals of 2016.
