Established by South of Beale and Shawn Gates of MyBlockMusic, Music on Main will be a fun-filled night complete with local music, drinks and giveaways.
Starting at 11am on March 31 at 361 S. Main, patrons can enjoy live music by School of Rock Memphis and the Visible Music College Performance Band, as well as some surprise performances. Music on Main is free, family-friendly, and open to the public.
Music on Main will partner with local businesses to offer an event-themed drink to celebrate the occasion. Attendees can also participate in giveaways for various gift cards and t-shirts.
We believe that there is an opportunity to create an environment for Memphians and tourists to enjoy and explore the South Main Area of Downtown Memphis.

This event serves to highlight the local musical talent in Memphis. Additionally, Music on Main wants to promote the South Main Area. As a result, event organizers encourage concert-goers to visit restaurants, like South of Beale, to grab a bite to eat.
Ultimately, South of Beale and MyBlockMemphis want to work to make Music on Main a reoccurring South Main tradition. While there are no official plans yet, organizers plan to make this festival a monthly or quarterly event.
