There is always something magical in the air of Memphis. Between their positive attitude to life and their enthusiasm for Memphis music festivals and concerts in Memphis, the residents of our city never fail to impress. Every year, Memphis becomes a hosting ground for many nationally and internationally acclaimed festivals that draw thousands of patrons from across the world, and this year is no different. With the lineup of the 2018 Mempho Music Festival already announced and tickets now on sale, fans are getting excited to be part of the Memphis Concerts 2018 venture. Read on for everything you need to know about the 2018 Mempho Music Festival.

The Big River Presents-sponsored Mempho Music Festival is all set to treat fans who attend its inaugural ceremony on Oct. 6, and the fun will continue through Oct. 7. The event will be held at the famous Shelby Farms Park and is set to feature good food, live performances by award-winning artists and more.

In addition to seeing Grammy Award-winning artists Beck and Phoenix, attendees will witness hip-hop legend Post Malone in action, as well as live performances by the Grammy-nominated Funkstress and indie rock supernova prince Mac DeMarco. This year, the festival will pay tribute to Memphis heritage by honoring the award-winning and globally renowned Royal Studios. For many years, Royal Studios in Memphis hosted music sessions with notable and award-winning artists.

The Mempho Music Festival’s philanthropic partner, the nonprofit organization Mempho Matters, works locally to promote humanitarian movements, raise awareness of social issues and positively impact the local community through educational programs, music, and charity-based art education. Plus, the organization is planning to provide complimentary Mempho Music festival admission to Memphis-area music teachers and their students.

In addition, the 2018 Mempho Music Festival will partner with the Oceanic Global Foundation to promote ocean safety, as well as with the Memphis Area Women’s Council on the Memphis Says No More safety initiative. This means the festive ground will be straw-free this year to support the noble ocean safety campaign.

As well as enjoying the live musical performances, Mempho Fest attendees can also take advantage of the on-site camping opportunities and the outdoor activity options available within the Shelby Farms Park. Adventure seekers can delve into various park activities such as biking, zip lining, and canoeing.

To experience this unique event for yourself, secure your GA, VIP or Super VIP admission while tickets last. Come and join us for this biggest music celebration!
