Ready to Experience Live Music in Memphis?

We don’t blame you! Memphis is a music city through and through. One of the best ways to discover what we’re all about is through live music in Memphis – and lucky for you, there’s tons to choose from.

Whether you’re looking for live music in Memphis this weekend or live music tonight, We Are Memphis Music Live is your go-to resource. You can narrow the dates you’d like to view in our search bar so that you only see shows that work for you. Then you can narrow it even further: search by cover charge, area of town, genre and more to find the concert you’re looking for or discover something new.

Find Concerts in Memphis That Fit Your Budget

We love the features that allow you to search by cover charge and area of town, because they serve the true Memphis music lovers!

If you know you want to see live music near you tonight, and you know you’d like to discover something new for around $10, you can easily narrow the offerings to see just shows happening in your neighborhood at $10 or less. It’s the perfect way to discover something totally new, and on We Are Memphis Music Live you’ll be able to check out live performance videos of the artists before you head to the show!

Get A Bird’s-Eye View of Live Music in Memphis

Maybe you’re a live music pro and you want to see it all! If that’s you, and you’d rather browse everything that’s out there, you can do that, too.

Next to the page numbers as you click through the listings, you’ll see a button that says ‘See All.’ Click it to view every single show happening in the city, in chronological order, for your perusing pleasure.

Each show can be clicked to open up a listing page where you can get even more info about the event – see what part of town the venue is in if you’re not familiar, view the cover charge and ticket link where applicable, and in many cases you can even check out a live performance video of the artist performing. It’s a great way to get a preview of an artist you might not have seen live before but are curious about checking out!

Discover Our Curated Memphis Live Music Picks

Last but not least, you can also view picks curated by We Are Memphis Music Live partners, like Memphis’ own community freeform radio station WYXR.

Each month, the team at WYXR selects shows that they think you just can’t afford to miss. You can easily view just the events they recommend by selecting WYXR Picks under Partner Picks in the search bar! We know it’s always helpful to have a trusted source recommend a show – especially when you are looking to discover something new! Keep reading to learn more about how we build in recommended picks for live music throughout the site.

We’re constantly thinking of more ways to make it even easier to discover live music in Memphis, whether you’re a lifelong Memphian and music lover or you’re just visiting the city and looking to get a taste of what we have to offer. We want you to get out and see live music in our city!

With options to narrow your search to laser focus on shows happening near you, happening tonight or this weekend, and even those that’ll cost you less than $5 or $10, we promise you’ll find what you’re looking for!

Explore the Memphis Music Scene

The Memphis music scene isn’t confined to a single neighborhood or just a few genres – you can find live music happening near you any night of the week in just about any genre.

Looking for live music tonight? We’ve got you covered. Looking to plan ahead and save the date for bigger shows you might spend a little bit more on? We can help with that, too! We Are Memphis Music Live is your one-stop source, and we’ve made it easy for you to find exactly what you’re looking for.

One of the ways we do this is through our curated picks and recommendations. If you’re a pro in the Memphis music scene, you can use our search tools to narrow and find the shows you’re looking for. If you’re just getting started exploring, though, you might be interested to check out some of our weekly and monthly features.

Weekly Live Music Recommendations

Each week, you can read about our team’s curated recommendations for live music in Memphis in a piece we call WAMM Recommends.

This will include all the info you need: links to purchase tickets, show dates and start times, background on why we think you shouldn’t miss this show, and we’ll always include a live performance video for the band or bands who are on the bill. We want you to discover something new, and we know having a preview of what’s in store is a huge help in making the decision to go to the gig.

Monthly Live Music Recommendations

Each month, you’ll be able to do some planning ahead – so get out your calendar! We want to make you aware of shows in advance so that you can save the date, get tickets before they sell out if needed, and be sure you don’t miss a show that you’d really love to see.

Sometimes you’ll be on the hunt for live music tonight or live music this weekend, but we know it’s nice to plan ahead – especially for those shows you’re going to shell out a little bit more to attend. Look for this story around the last week of each month. It’ll detail up to 10 shows we think are essential in the coming month, plus give you all the usual info: ticket links, show dates and times, and links to preview the artists on the bill with live performance videos.

Listen to Memphis Artists on Spotify

If you're looking for Memphis musicians to jam out to when you aren't at a live concert, check out our Memphis Artists playlists on Spotify.

While you can find any live music happening in Memphis on We Are Memphis Live, including local artists and national touring artists, this feature particularly emphasizes the Memphis-based artists we think you should know. Our monthly Spotify playlists feature between 12-18 artists who are performing live somewhere in the city in the month ahead.

Don’t have time to read a story about our recommendations? No problem. Just press play on this Spotify mix each month and you’ll be able to listen through to what’s coming up. Press pause when you hear something you love, and we promise you’ll be able to find the information on when and where you can see that artist live at We Are Memphis Music Live.

See Live Music on Beale Street

It’s impossible to understand and feel the history of music in Memphis without taking a trip to Beale Street. This iconic heartbeat of downtown Memphis is the home of the blues and features live music every single night of the week in multiple venues, as it has for decades.

In addition to blues and rock’n’roll, you can also find genres from hip-hop to soul to EDM, and even a chance to make some Beale Street music magic yourself with karaoke.

Walk Your Way Through Beale Street

Beale Street might not just be on your radar for this trip – it might be your entire itinerary! Thousands of visitors each year come to Memphis solely to experience the history of Beale Street music.

While you’re on Beale Street, don’t forget to explore the brass music notes that you’ll see in the sidewalks all around you – they represent the names of Memphis music legends and people who have made a huge mark on the Memphis music scene throughout history. You just might learn something or discover a Memphis music figure you didn’t know about!

If you’re looking to learn about Beale Street live music offerings – before you just set out and wander the street, discovering with your ears! – we’ve got you covered on We Are Memphis Live. You can easily search for events downtown by using the downtown tag in the search bar to expand your reach just a bit – you’ll discover music happening on world-famous Beale Street, but you’ll also find hidden gem venues throughout Memphis’ downtown, including live music events happening in buzzy downtown neighborhoods like South Main Historic Arts District, the Pinch District and more.

Beale Street Music is Just the Beginning

Use your Beale Street music experience as a jumping off point to discover more live music in Memphis and get to know the Memphis music scene.

Whether you’re hitting up a venue in the South Main district or elsewhere downtown, or even hopping a little bit further east to Crosstown or Midtown, you might find that you see some of the same faces – and hear some of the same voices! – as you explore the live music offering in our city.

While Beale Street tends to focus on blues and rock’n’roll, many of the artists and musicians who perform there are also part of bands performing myriad other genres, from pop to soul to indie rock to folk, throughout the city. Starting on Beale Street and building outward, you can truly experience the full Memphis music story, from past to present to future.
