, Memphis Commercial Appeal

On Saturday, more than 20 acts — with headliners including roots-rockers Lucero, rapper Al Kapone, R&B big band Love Light Orchestra and up-and-coming singer songwriter Bailey Bigger — will play across five stages at Tom Lee Park, as part of the Celebrate Memphis extravaganza.

The free family-friendly event is being staged by Memphis in May, as a wrap-up to monthlong activities, which included the Beale Street Music Festival and World Championship Barbecue Cooking contest.

Marking Memphis’ bicentennial, Celebrate Memphis — presented in conjunction with the city of Memphis, Shelby County and Memphis Brand Initiative — will bring together musical acts and performance artists for a daylong festival, picnic, air and drone show, and fireworks display.
