Ticket Fraud Warning
Memphis in May officials are warning potential guests about the possibility of fraudulent tickets being sold by street vendors and online scalpers. Memphis in May was contacted last week by StubHub after they noticed a number of potentially fraudulent tickets being sold on their site. They are working with our ticket vendor, Ticketfly.com to investigate further and may pursue formal charges against the fraudulent sellers.
Whether bought online through a third-party ticket-selling website such as StubHub or outside the gates at Tom Lee Park, patrons risk purchasing duplicated print-at-home tickets or previously-scanned tickets which are not valid for admission. To prevent being a victim of such crime, Memphis in May warns patrons to purchase tickets through the only authorized vendor, Ticketfly.com, or during festival hours at the official Memphis in May ticket booth at Riverside and Beale.
The 2018 Beale Street Music Festival opens at 5:00 pm on Friday, May 4 and runs through Sunday, May 6, and is sponsored by Bud Light, FedEx and Coca-Cola.
