Preview: Grind City Fest

Grind City Fest is a new, two-day music festival celebrating Blues, Brews, and Bluegrass. The inaugural event will be held on Friday, August 26 and Saturday, August 27 at Grind City Brewing Company. The venue features a backdrop of unique views of Memphis and sits on 1.75 acres of green space located just five minutes north of downtown.

Attendees will enjoy a mix of performances by national, regional, and local blues and bluegrass artists. Don’t miss these acts:

Greensky Bluegrass is a quintet known for their unique bluegrass sounds. Catch them playing across North America on successful back-to-back tours. In fact, Greensky recently sold out three nights at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre – a feat unheard of in their genre.

The Infamous Stringdusters are a Grammy Award-winning group from our Tennessee neighbor, Nashville. Together since 2006, their sounds bring a progressive bluegrass/americana vibe.

If you ask Here Come the Mummies how long they’ve been playing, the group will tell you that they’ve been delivering their brand of terrifying funk from beyond the grave since 2000 AD. The vibes and costumes are *chef’s kiss* unmatched.

He is hard to find, but when you spot him, he is out of this world. Saxsquatch and his Bigfoot suit truly offers something like you have never seen before.

With years of experience under their boots, The Travelin’ McCourys, Kyle Nix & The 38s, and The Wild Feathers all bring their own unique bluegrass sounds and vibes.

Support your hometown girl. Cyrena Wages is no stranger to the Memphis brand and music scene. Her soulful voice and passion for the 901 make her one of our local favorites.

Last, but never least, Dirty Streets offers a clean blend of Motown and Stax-inspired rock that will keep you moving through the heart of Memphis groove.

Grab your tickets here. You certainly don’t want to miss this one!
