The annual Beale Street Music Festival runs from May 3-5, with performances by Dave Matthews Band, The Killers, Gary Clark Jr. and Cardi B. It gives Memphians a chance to see some of music’s biggest acts perform in Tom Lee Park.
But local music is also a priority in Memphis, a city that was once the home of legendary musicians like Elvis Presley and W.C. Handy. To show support for emerging talent, head to the third annual Memphis Local Music Festival May 11.
Numerous genres will be on display at the event, which takes place at Downtown Elementary.
