Schedule, tickets, parking and more

For the first time in three years, Beale Street Music Festival is back. With a new location and various changes to the setup, here’s a handy guide for concertgoers to make the most of their experience. 

New location at the Fairgrounds in Liberty Park

Due to ongoing construction at the fest’s usual home, Tom Lee Park, this year’s event will take place at the Fairgrounds in Liberty Park. The 2022 Beale Street Music Festival will be set up at the Fairgrounds in an area bounded by Hollywood, East Parkway, Central and Southern. The Fairgrounds setup will feature the usual three major stages plus the blues tent. The Fairgrounds will offer the normal concessions and merchandise booths, but the slightly larger space will also allow for organizers to bring in a giant Ferris wheel — which will host rides for free — to add to the atmosphere.
