Occupy the Shell is a free, community-organized, one-day music festival. It features a unique and diverse mix of: globally recognized artists, local legends and up and coming stars. Various ages, genres of music, and styles are represented.
The purpose and design is to bring the Mid-South communities together in a celebration of culture, art, life, love and the historic Overton Park Shell.
Occupy the Shell began in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which left many musicians out of work. It is a safe, family-friendly environment where spectators and fans come together to hear the best of Mid-South music and get turned on to new artists and musicians.
