Moon River Music Festival Tickets
Moon River Music Festival TicketsThe Moon River Music Festival is a special two-day event that celebrates the best of Americana, bluegrass, folk, blues, alternative rock and country. It sometimes incorporates R&B, soul, indie rock and other genres as well. With deep roots in the Tennessee area, the Moon River Music Festival showcases both old and new artists from across the United States.
A Weekend on the RiverThe Moon River Music Festival is the brainchild of alternative rock artist and Tennessee native Drew Holcomb and his band The Neighbors. First held in 2014, the one-day festival was staged at the historic Levitt Shell in Memphis, Tennessee, as a showcase for the city. Located near Overton Park, this open-air amphitheater was the site of Elvis Presley's first paid concert in 1954. The inaugural event featured a lineup of Drew and Ellie Holcomb, Apollo Mighty, Myla Smith, Holly Williams, Will Hoge and more. In 2016, the event expanded to encompass a second day and began showcasing more musicians. However, due to the rising popularity of the festival, it soon began to outgrow the modest size of the amphitheater. In 2018, the festival officially moved to Coolidge Park in the city of Chattanooga. Located on the banks of the Tennessee River, the park offered ample green spaces, a community atmosphere and enough space for two stages.
