Happy 10th Birthday, Rock For Love! The annual Memphis music festival and Church Health Center fundraiser is officially in double-digits this year, so mark your calendars for Friday, September 2 through Sunday, September 4.

Rock for Love packs three days with live music from a few dozen of Memphis’ finest musical acts at various venues. Proceeds go to the Church Health Center, an organization that provides healthcare to Memphis’ working uninsured. Last year, Rock for Love raised $50,000. (Wow!)

Today, Rock For Love announced a preliminary lineup and schedule. Here’s what we know so far.

Update August 1, 2016: I’ve added the additional bands to the lineup and will continue to do so as they’re announced!

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
