Every Outdoor Concert in Memphis Worth Going to This Summer
Summer in Memphis is hotter than two squirrels gettin’ busy in a wool sock. But don’t let the scorching heat, humidity, and horny small-to-medium-sized rodents keep you indoors. Go outside and catch a few shows. Hell, once you’re a few beers in, you’ll forget about the weather, anyway.

Day two’s lineup features Meghan Trainor, Modest Mouse, Jason Derulo, Barenaked Ladies, Yo Gotti, Violent Femmes, Cypress Hill, Jonny Lang, Moon Taxi, Lucinda Williams, Better Than Ezra, and a WHOLE lot more.
BSMF closes out with performances by Beck, Paul Simon, Zedd, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Cold War Kids, The Arcs, Bastille, Courtney Barnett, Indigo Girls, Blackberry Smoke, The Joy Formidable, The Lone Bellow, Bernard Allison, and -- once again -- a WHOLE lot more.
