Feel The Music
Mempho Music Festival is the latest chapter in the rich musical history of Memphis, Tennessee. Paying homage to the Memphis community’s unique role in shaping and influencing global music culture, Mempho Music Festival was created to blend today’s best contemporary sounds with Memphis’ storied musical heritage. The festival experience ties these roots together with music, food, and nature, and we’re committed to making it an integral part of the Memphis cultural scene for years to come. Building off Mempho’s inaugural year, in 2018, the festival will offer multiple live music stages, art installations, a unique food experience, and an interactive dome that melds together the worlds of music, art, science, and design.
Enjoy The Food
The Mempho Music Festival food offerings reflect the vibrant culinary scene in Memphis. Choices range from the city’s famous barbecue, to exotic food trucks and gourmet cuisine prepared by the area’s finest chefs and restaurateurs. There are options for every taste and budget, along with wine, beer, and cocktails to complement the culinary experience. Full list of offerings TBA.
Camp In The Park
For the second annual Mempho Music Festival, we’ve expanded our experience to include three nights of on-site camping (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)! At 4,500 acres, Shelby Farms Park is one of the largest urban parks in the country with more than 20 bodies of water, serving as the perfect backdrop to Mempho’s continuous playlist. Located less than 20 miles from downtown Memphis, the park is both a vibrant community hub and a retreat from the hustle bustle of urban life–the perfect alternative to hotel accomodations. Shelby Farms Park also offers a variety of activities, including zip-lining through the trees; canoeing, paddleboating, and kayaking the lakes; biking through the tree-lined paths; and so much more!
The roots of American music can be clearly traced directly to Memphis. The city has sites of historic and national importance that everyone traveling in for Memphis should take full advantage of, including the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Motel, Elvis’ Graceland, Sun Studios, Stax, the endless music on Beale Street, and an entire city full of barbecue.
