Mempho Music Festival Coming To Shelby Farms Park In October

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - Music and Memphis are two words often heard together. Soon, folks will be able to enjoy a first of its kind festival at Shelby Farms Park: Mempho Music Festival.

In just a few months, the sounds from Grammy award-winning and nominated bands like Cage the Elephant, Cold War Kids, and Robert Randolph and the Family Band will fill Shelby Farms Park. This is the first of its kind of music festival to be hosted here since the park has been revitalized.

The Mempho Music Festival will take place north of the park on the disc golf course on October 6th and 7th.

It's the brainchild of Memphis native and East Coast based entrepreneur Diego Winegardner, who came back to the Bluff City in 2009 and fell in love with the park's redevelopment.

The goal is to attract at least 20,000 people to this two-day festival. It will include 20 national and local acts, and a special tribute to the music of Memphis by Booker T Jones and Steve Cropper.

It's being branded as a green-friendly festival with a focus on local and regional cuisine.

“We have always had a vision to have a fall music festival come to Shelby Farms park,” says Natalie Wilson, Senior Manager of the Visitor Experience, Shelby Farms Park. “It's something we've wanted for years. And when we finished our development, that was one of the goals that we wanted to have music here. We feel that nature and music hand and hand the arts.”

As far as security goes, organizers have teamed up with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office and Memphis Police department to provide a safe time for people.
