Memphis, TN’s Beale Street Music Festival has revealed its lineup for 2014. The three-day fest will take at Tom Lee Park on May 2nd – 4th.

The incredibly eclectic lineup is topped by Foster the People, Motörhead, Alabama Shakes, Pretty Lights, Avenged Sevenfold, and Kid Rock. It just gets crazier from there, as Snoop Dogg AKA Snoop Lion, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, The String Cheese Incident, STS9, Jerry Lee Lewis, Grouplove, Bone Thugs-N-Harmoy, 311, Juicy J, and Wolfmother are also on the bill.

Other notables include Dropkick Murphys, Third Eye Blind, Bootsy Collins, Patti Labelle, Chick Corea & The Vigil, Dandy Warhols, Jason Isbell, Seether, Blues Traveler, Fitz and the Tantrums, Dicky Betts, North Mississippi Allstars, MS MR, Carolina Chocolate Drops, and Twenty One Pilots.

The festival has also expanded its late night festivities featuring Big Gigantic and Beats Antique on Friday and Saturday night, respectively.

If there’s a more off-the-wall looking lineup this summer, I challenge you to find it. Three-day passes for Beale Street are only $85, single day come in at $35, and they’re on sale via Ticketmaster.

Here’s the full lineup poster:

MSMR is a must see- see what I mean with this live performance of “Think of You” http://pitchfork.com/tv/36-artist-connect/1092-ms-mr-think-of-you/

I lived in Memphis for three years and BSMF was always a highlight. The park is nestled between the Mississippi River and downtown, the weather is usually pretty solid, and the fried dough is unlimited. The lineups are always eclectic to appeal to the diverse tastes of the city (from jam to bad metal to rap to actual blues). They have three main stages and a smaller blues tent and do a great job of stacking the lineup to limit conflicts. Also it is a treat to see Jerry Lee Lewis on his home turf.

This will be the 10th years I have attended the BSMF and “the weather is usually pretty solid” is not an accurate description. It has rained EVERY year. The weather can vary from year to year. Its been hot and muggy, severe weather, and last year it was bitter cold. Water/mud proof footwear is a must!!
