Memphis is well-documented as the home of the blues and the birthplace of rock and roll, with plenty of soul, hip hop and much more echoing off the banks of the Mississippi River as well. Just as music has made history in Memphis for decades, so too will On Location: MEMPHIS (OL:M) in 2015 with the announcement of its very first standalone music festival.
Scheduled to coincide with the 16th OL:M film festival on Labor Day weekend, the On Location: MEMPHIS Music Festival will take place on September 4 and 5. A music festival pass will provide attendees access to all music-related films, music workshops, a business expo and concerts at Cooper Walker Place in the historic Cooper-Young neighborhood of Midtown Memphis. Passes are $45 and will be available in June. However, a LivingSocial program will take effect on May 1, where patrons can purchase two passes for $59 or four for just $119. More details about the LivingSocial program are available here: http://bit.ly/1yLys6l.
“No matter what kind of music you like, you can bet that it traces at least part of its heritage back to Memphis,” said OL:M Executive Director Angela Green. “We could not be more thrilled to be part of the continuing music tradition here, and the variety of acts scheduled to play will reflect the diverse sounds of this city.”
