2021 MEMPHO Music Festival Moves Locations And Announces Dates

MEMPHO is back for 2021.

Update Sept. 1: the schedule is out! only sunday tickets + limited number of 3-day GA passes remain

Mempho announced it's daily schedule and stage times—see that here. As of September 17, 2021, there are only Sunday single day tickets and a limited number of 3-day GA passes left. I have a feeling this entire festival is about to sell out.

  I’m looking to come down to Memphis (from New England) for a weekend in early December 2021 with my little brother to help him celebrate his 60th birthday. We both love live music, especially the Blues.  

 I’ve been to your fair city before and thoroughly enjoyed the food, music n vibe. This time, however, I would like to get beyond Beal St. and enjoy some local venues n local music. Do you know of any knowledgeable individuals who wouldn’t mind acting as a tour guide for an evening who could escort us to some local establishments with good music. This way, we could avoid waiting for Ubers n hitting places that don’t fit the bill. We would make it worth their time.
