Memphis in May Adds to 2019 Beale Street Music Festival Lineup
The Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival today announced four more acts joining the 2019 Beale Street Music Festival lineup. The announcement brings the total number of performers to sixty-four.
The new lineup additions are popular alt-rock acts Everclear and The Claypool Lennon Delirium comprised of Les Claypool (of Primus) and Sean Lennon, along with indie pop act Echosmith and emerging Memphis rap artists Kevo Muney and Action Pack AP.
“We already have a very strong lineup covering a wide variety of musical genres for the 2019 Beale Street Music Festival but felt these additions will resonate with our rock fans and increase the number of local performers on-stage, making a great lineup even better,” said James L. Holt, President and CEO of Memphis in May. “We pride ourselves on the musical diversity found at Beale Street Music Festival and this year patrons will find hip hop, R&B, soul, rock, indie, pop, blues, and more.”
Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite.com and are sold now through April 19 as three-day passes for just $135 or single-day tickets for $55. A limited number of VIP passes are also available at Eventbrite.com for $649.
