Mempho Music Festival and Mempho Matters, Mempho Fest’s non-profit organization, aim to foster a positive impact in Memphis through “Learn To Rock”, a philanthropy-based arts education and funding initiative. Working with Memphis area businesses and community leaders, they are providing many Memphis area music teachers and students admission to Mempho at no cost.

New to 2018, Mempho Music Festival is partnering with the Memphis Area Women’s Council to promote the Memphis Says NO MORE campaign—aimed at raising awareness for domestic violence and sexual assault—by providing a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment for all attendees. Mempho has also joined the #BringYourSoul campaign, celebrating the originality, soul, and change that Memphis is known for. Additionally, Mempho Music Festival has teamed up with the Oceanic Global Foundation—a non-profit that educates individuals on issues impacting our ocean through art, music, and emerging technologies—and is proud to take the pledge to go completely straw-free! This year, Mempho Music Festival has also partnered with CID Entertainment to provide VIP and Super VIP experiences, including on-site camping and glamping options.
