The Black Keys, Phoenix, the Flaming Lips, Smashing Pumpkins, Public Enemy, and more are invading this year’s Beale Street Music Festival, scheduled to take place at Memphis’ Tom Lee Park from May 3 to 5. Also on the bill: the increasingly busy Roots, Bassnectar, festival champion Gary Clark Jr., Deer Tick, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here rockers Alice in Chains, and Patti Smith, among others.
The three-day showcase is part of the month-long Memphis in May tourism event, which also hosts the World Champion Barbecue Cooking Contest and the Sunset Symphony. Last year’s Beale Street fest featured performances from My Morning Jacket, Florence + the Machine, Jane’s Addiction, Wiz Khalifa, Girl Talk, Childish Gambino, Megadeth, and more.
