Mempho Music Festival has announced the lineup for its fifth annual event taking place September 30-October 2, 2022 at Memphis Botanic Garden. Leading the breadth of can’t-miss performances this year will be American rock/blues duo The Black Keys, alternative rock mainstays Wilco, and decorated Americana outfit Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit, as well as a double-dose of Athens-based ensemble Widespread Panic returning to the lineup by popular demand. Appearances by Portugal. The Man, Fantastic Negrito, Tank and the Bangas, Allison Russell, and Celisse are also confirmed on the Adams Keegan main stage. View the complete lineup below.
Since its debut in 2017, Mempho Fest has forged its own path in the increasingly-saturated festival circuit. Billboard Magazine has lauded the event as “one of the premiere Southeast music festivals for Americana, rock and blues music,” as evidenced by its continued growth in both patronage and enthusiasm. Last year, the festival celebrated a milestone in its new home at Radians Amphitheater by selling out on all three days, with plans to increase in capacity over the coming years. As Mempho Fest pushes forward, its continued spotlight on Memphis culture, and dedication to upholding the city’s unique musical legacy, will be a driving force in the event’s curation.
This year, Mempho Fest has once again teamed up with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as its charitable partner and beneficiary. The Memphis-based treatment facility is a leading resource and support center for families affected by childhood cancer and other illnesses, providing first-rate care to patients regardless of income status.
