The city of Memphis is tuning up for a massive musical shindig this fall, with the return of the Mempho Music Festival at Radians Amphitheater in the Memphis Botanic Garden. This year's event, proclaimed to be a sonic homage to Memphis' soul, boasts a hefty lineup of rock, jazz, country, and everything in between. As announced, Queens of the Stone Age, Trey Anastasio & Classic TAB, and Cody Jinks will be headlining, ensuring a riff-rich three days from October 4-6, 2024.

According to Local Memphis, the festival isn't merely sticking to the mainstays – fresh acts like Goose, The Roots, Sublime with Rome, and Marcus King are set to share the stage, supplementing the sonic landscape of the event. Those looking to get down can also expect to groove at a silent disco housed within the Incendia Dome, with details on the artists and DJs hitting that niche stage expected to be revealed soon.

Mempho Presents, the organizer behind the fest, isn't just stopping with the tunes, as it's added the Riverbeat Music Festival and Smokeslam BBQ Festival to its 2024 portfolio. Live For Live Music captured the essence of this expansion with a quote from Mempho Fest producer Jeff Bransford stating, "Mempho Presents has always been about celebrating the soul of Memphis, and Mempho Fest embodies that spirit." He further asserted the organization's aim for unforgettable experiences that highlight the musical diversity for which the city is renowned.

On the practical side of things, festival goers can already snag their tickets – with 3-Day General Admission going for $250 and VIP passes at a lofty $770, which includes a VIP lounge, primo seating, and a slew of other perks. And, if that's not enough, a $125 premium parking add-on is also up for grabs, for those looking to roll in convenience right next to the tunes.

Still on the fence about committing to all three days? No sweat, single-day tickets will be made available closer to the event, along with the schedule of performances. But as The Daily Memphian reports, with a lineup that includes seasoned rockers and genre-blending artists such as The Roots, Sublime with Rome, Marcus King, Charles Wesley Godwin, Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors, and Digable Planets – it's a bet that tickets, will be hot commodities. So plan ahead, and get ready to bask in the Memphis beat this October.
