This weekend many music fans were “Walking with their feet 10 feet off of Beale” as the 2015 Beale Street Music Festival went off without a hitch in Tom Lee Park in Memphis, Tennessee. Headlining performers drew huge crowds to see the likes of Ed Sheeran and Hozier on the last day of the festival. Historically in any festival, Sundays are the slowest and least crowded due to it being the day before the work week begins. Such was not the case this year in Memphis as beautiful weather and great musical talent kept the crowd and the energy plentiful.
The organization who put the festival on is called Memphis in May recalls years past where attendance and atmosphere was not up to par due to the weather. Having great weather makes all the difference with sunny skies making the Mississippi River look as majestic as it can.
This year, acts ranged in genre and target audience as the festival drew crowds from all age groups. John Fogerty on Saturday brought in many 20-50 year olds, while Paramore and Sheeran drew in younger teenagers to the festivities. Festival organizers thought the acts out well as they appealed to not only age groupers but also home town supporters of the music show. A local group, Star & Micey played hometown favorites with their harmony and energy.
There were not only local and domestic band playing as the UK was well represented at the festival. Debuting at the stage at the UK centered venue was Britains Kaiser Chiefs, followed by Ireland’s Hozier and Ed Sheeran on the Bud Light Stage.
In all the festival was an utter success leaving an experience in the attendees mind of complete satisfaction and good vibes.
