Earlier this morning, Beale Street Music Festival released their full 2020 lineup.
For those who might not be familiar, Beale Street Music Festival is a three-day multi stage music festival that takes place annually in Tom Lee Park – in Memphis, Tennessee. This year’s festival is set to take place May 1-3, 2020. The music festival is part of a larger event put on each year – called Memphis in May.
We will definitely be updating our followers with more info on this fest soon – but in the meantime, let’s take a look at the full lineup that came out this morning.
One of the first things that popped out to me was how strong this lineup is from top to bottom. There are some absolute gems in some of the last few lines – Mavis Staples and Waka Flocka Flame! And we have been hearing fantastic things about The Glorious Sons.
A few more quick highlights: first – Nelly. Last summer, I got to see Nelly at Forecastle and it was one of the absolute best shows I saw all season. That might sound like a pretty strong pronouncement – but honestly he was fantastic. Pretty much every song he drops is a full on hit/sing-a-long and at least in Kentucky the crowd was all about it. It was a great set and I strongly encourage the experience. I mean come on, when is it not fun to sing “It’s getting hot in herre” with thousands of your fellow fest goers.
The Lumineers, The Smashing Pumpkins, Liam Gallagher, AJR, 311 and so many more all look to be a great time. Let us know who you are most excited about!
