MEMPHO is the latest chapter in the rich musical history of Memphis. Its founders are committed to making it an integral part of the Memphis cultural scene for years to come. MEMPHO has been created to blend today's best sounds with Memphis' storied musical heritage, creating a festival experience filled with music, food, and nature that appeals to people of all ages.

The roots of American music can be clearly traced directly to Memphis. the first annual MEMPHO music festival is being launched with a distinct purpose to pay homage to our community's unique role in shaping and influencing global music culture. With two stages of music and culinary options for every taste and budget, MEMPHO offers attendees an abundance of great music and food in harmony with nature.


At 4,500 acres, Shelby Farms Park is one of the largest urban parks in the country. Located in Memphis, Tennessee, less than 20 miles from downtown, the park is both a vibrant community hub and a retreat from the hustle and bustle of urban life.


Complimentary parking is included with your ticket purchase.


Gates open at 5:00 pm Central Time on Friday, October 6th and at 12:00 pm on Saturday, October 7th.


The artist lineup will be added to in the coming weeks so join our mailing list and receive important MEMPHO updates.


There is no on-site camping for the first year. The park will be closed at the end of the musical performance each night.
