Since its debut in 2017, Mempho Fest has charted its own course and sustained continued growth and excitement. Last year, the festival celebrated a milestone in its new home at the Radians Amphitheater by selling out all three days, with plans to increase capacity over the next few years. As Mempho Fest progresses, its continued spotlight on Memphis culture and its dedication to preserving the city’s unique musical heritage will be a driving force in curating the event.

This year, Mempho Fest has again partnered with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis – a leading resource and support center for families affected by childhood cancer and other illnesses – in as a charitable partner and beneficiary.

General admission and VIP tickets are on sale now, with prices ranging from $195 to $660. Tickets can be purchased through or through Front Gate Tickets. Single-day tickets will be made available with the announcement of daily queues closer to the festival date. For more information and to stay up to date on all things Mempho Fest, visit
