Coming off one of their biggest years in history, Memphis in May announces 2020 Beale Street Music Festival 3-Day Passes will go on sale this Friday, October 4 on this page.

Although the 2020 lineup will not be announced until February, Festival organizers are offering a limited number of 3-day passes now at the deeply discounted price of only $125.  Based upon the success of last year’s pre-sale and subsequent Sunday sell-out, these limited quantity passes are expected to sell quickly. Once these discounted passes are gone, prices will go up, so Beale Street Music Festival fans are encouraged to buy now for the lowest price of the year.

“The Beale Street Music Festival has grown in popularity and acclaim in recent years, and we expect the 44th annual edition of the music festival to be the biggest one yet, continuing our tradition of presenting a diverse array of the top stars in contemporary music in picturesque Tom Lee Park,” said James L. Holt, president and CEO of Memphis in May. “Music lovers know to buy their three-day passes now for the greatest savings and look for a star-studded lineup release in early February.”

In addition to the discounted general admission 3-day passes, VIP passes are also available, which offer exclusive seating on raised, covered platforms with unobstructed views of each stage, VIP-only bars for beer and wine, and convenient VIP-only air-conditioned restrooms.  Parking options are also available.  Three-day VIP passes are $699 and are available at
