2019 Mempho Music Fest to take over Shelby Farms Park

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A music-filled weekend is in store at Shelby Farms Park.

More than 30 artists are set to play at this year’s Mempho Music Festival.

This is the third year for the event, and there are some changes from years past.

“We have two music stages that are running from 12:00 to basically midnight,” Mempho Music Festival Spokesperson, April Harbour said. “We have shuttle buses running from basically General Admission parking to the festival – and we have a sports lounge!”

There are some road closures in the area to be aware of before the fest kicks off.

Starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Farm Road will be closed from Mullins Station to just north of Walnut Grove. It will re-open around midnight Sunday night.

If you’re parking in general admission, you can access the lot by taking Walnut Grove to Farm Road and turning left into the parking area when you get to the road closure.

Fest officials say there are some items you will want to leave at home before you head out the door. Some of those include: weapons, outside food/drinks, pets and large backpacks/purses.

Harbour said there are other items event goers should bring, like an empty water bottle.

“We have a complimentary water fill station on site,” she said. “Also don’t forget your chairs and inflatable couches or lounge--as well as blankets.”

The line-up includes artists like Wu-Tang Clan, the Raconteurs, Brandi Carlile, The Revivalists and more.

There will also be lots of local food options.

“We have Corky’s unbeatable pork nachos, we also have pizza from 9 Dough 1, MemPops, as well as many more,” event spokesperson, Sarah Orzech said. “We even have a Memphis Made ‘Mempho brew’ -- that’s specialty just for Mempho.”

Tickets are on sale for $119 for a two-day pass and $75 for a single-day ticket.
